Minus the Bear at Sasquatch 2010 (more by Chris Graham)
Minus the Bear

Long-running math/emo band Minus the Bear released an Acoustics EP back in 2008, which consisted of acoustic versions of previously released tracks (and one new one), and now the band is prepping that EP's followup, Acoustics II. This one will be a full length, and is set to feature eight of the band's previously released tracks redone acoustically and two new ones. You can pledge pre-orders of the album on PledgeMusic. The album art is below.

Minus the Bear also just announced a tour, which includes a September run with Tera Melos and The New Trust, and an October/November run with INVSN and Slow Bird. The second leg hits NYC on October 25 at Best Buy Theater. Tickets for the NYC show are on presale now and go on sale to the general public on Friday (7/12) at noon. All tour dates are listed below.

In related news, fellow '00s-rooted emo-leaning indie band mewithoutYou, who MTB have toured with before, also have a tour coming up. Their tour hits Brooklyn on August 23 at The Bell House. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (7/12) at noon.

All dates for both tours are listed, along with some videos, below...
