FOR THEIR BREAKTHROUGH ALBUM 'PLANET OF ICE'
Minus the Bear are excited to announce the 10 year anniversary tour for Planet of Ice, the breakthrough third full-length album for the band. Released in August 2007 on Suicide Squeeze Records, the fan favorite album was the first release for the indie band to chart on the Billboard 200. Upon its release, Planet of Ice won high praise from Spin as "elegant and maturely conceived," while AV Club noted the innovative instrumentation and songwriting, enamored by the way "the disc uncoils with a sinister playfulness." Playing Planet of Ice in its entirety among other selections from their expansive catalog, the Seattle band will make stops in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Austin and many other cities before culminating in a hometown show at The Showbox on June 13th. All upcoming tour dates and on sale information is below.

In March 2017, Minus the Bear released their sixth album VOIDS, produced by Sam Bell (The Cribs, Weezer, Bloc Party, Two Door Cinema Club). Their recent release was lauded by Relix as "an exceptionally cohesive effort that ranks among the best of its catalog to date," while Noisey wrote that the dichotomy found on the album "between dark imagery and danceable, inventive rock has always been a hallmark of Minus The Bear's sound". The band's entire decade-spanning discography can be found at Suicide Squeeze and Spotify.
"VOIDS, the Seattle prog-punk group's first new album in five years, is one of the most powerful expressions of the melodicism, grit and heartfelt expressionism they've ever made." - Alternative Press
