Minus The Bear Announce Headlining Tour

Minus the Bear are thrilled to embark on a new headlining tour due to the overwhelming demand by fans and several months of sold-out tour dates. Beginning October 18th in Eugene, OR, the Seattle based quintet will head out in continued support of their latest album, OMNI, which Alternative Press praised as "the perfect album to launch Minus the Bear into another dimension entirely" and Paste Magazine simply called "the group's most explosive record." The tour will also include a performance at this year's Voodoo Music Festival in New Orleans on October 31st.

In addition, Minus the Bear will join Jimmy Eat World for a European tour this November. Tour dates below.

Since the release of OMNI, which debuted in the Top 50 of the Billboard Top 200, Minus the Bear have performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, made an appearance at this year's Lollapalooza, opened for Soundgarden and were recently selected for the "MTV + Pepsi Refresh" series, which will spotlight the band on Viacom channels MTV, VH1, Teen Nick, Comedy Central and Spike all of September.

Did you know that?

The name "Minus the Bear" comes from an in-joke among the band members, referring to the 70´s television program, B. J. and the Bear. "A friend of the band had gone on a date,” explains singer-guitarist Jake Snider, "and one of us asked him afterwards how the date went. Our friend said, ´You know that TV show from the ´70s B.J. and The Bear? It was like that... minus The Bear.´ That’s the straight truth."
