Welcome Minus The Bear
We are delighted to welcome the wonderful Minus The Bear to the BSM family! Having influenced a great number of the artists we've worked with over the past few years, it's an honour to be releasing their brilliant new record, 'Infinity Overhead', in September.
The veteran Seattle-based fivesome reunited with former member and longtime producer Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Isis, Cursive) to create a guitar-laden 10-track record that is heavy both on technicality and pop songcraft. Previous album ‘OMNI’ saw the band experimenting with more electronic based textures, but ‘Infinity Overhead’ see’s them move back into the territory where they made such a name for themselves; intelligent, big sounding guitar based anthems. As singer/guitarist Jake Snider succinctly puts it: “We didn’t go anywhere, but we’re back”.
Since forming in Seattle in 2001, Minus The Bear has worked relentlessly over the past decade to build a large and devoted following worldwide with consistent releases and a non-stop touring regimen. With a back-catalogue that has seen them sell over 300,000 records, the band has played countless sold out tours throughout the world, in addition to unforgettable performances at huge US festivals, including Bonnaroo, Coachella, Lollapalooza and Sasquatch!. They have done this all on their own terms and with the release of ‘Infinity Overhead’, they are at the height of their powers.
Album pre-orders begin on July 16th and the band play Belgium’s Pukkelpop Festival on August 16th and London’s Heaven on August 17th.
