Minus the Bear will close the book on their nearly two decades as a band with a farewell tour this fall. Since their first shows in 2001, the Seattle group have been thrilling crowds with their virtuosic songwriting and play from Los Angeles, New York, London and Tokyo, to Jimmy Kimmel Live and Bonnaroo. Their melding of genres and innovative use of pedals, loops, and electronic elements in their music has been a defining contribution to indie rock in the mp3 and streaming era, and an influence on the band’s peers and those that followed in their wake.

The band are also releasing one last EP titled ´Fair Enough,´ which is out October 19 via long-time label Suicide Squeeze.

In addition to the news, Minus the Bear have announced a farewell tour, which kicks off October 9 with a show at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville, Tennessee and will conclude on December 14 in Seattle Washington at The Showbox.
