Well it must be true when they say all good things must come to an end. Today, Minus the Bear have announced that after 17 years they will be heading out on their final tour with special guests Caspian and Tera Melos (on select dates). In addition to their farewell tour announcement, the band has also shared that they will be releasing one final 4-song EP Fair Enough courtesy of Suicide Squeeze Records. Hear the title track HERE in an exclusive interview with Stereogum.com.
Minus the Bear took to social media with the following caption with their tour announcement:
After almost two decades of writing and touring the world together, we have decided to close this chapter of our lives as Minus the Bear.
What started as a silly inside joke inside the dingy confines of Seattle’s original Cha Cha Lounge back in 2001 quickly snowballed into years of adventures, creativity, and friendship. We could have never predicted the wild journey about to begin. We’ve accomplished so much over the past 17 years, and we are grateful for the experience.
Undoubtedly we owe all of these adventures to you, our fans. Without all of you, the memories of traveling the world, exploring different cultures, and witnessing the delight of your beautiful faces singing along wouldn’t have been possible. Your support weathered us through storms that easily could have scuttled the band. Throughout the years, it’s you who kept us going. We cannot thank you enough.
This Autumn we head out on our final tour in support of our upcoming 4-song EP “Fair Enough” courtesy of Suicide Squeeze Records. You can hear the title track and read our interview here: https://bit.ly/2utoQ1d
These final shows are a celebration for the community of fans who gave us so much through years of dedication. We’ll be digging deep in the MTB catalogue and we are honored for the opportunity to play our hearts out for you one last time.
Alex, Cory, Dave & Jake
