Minus the Bear Announce 10th Anniversary ‘Menos El Oso’ Tour + Reissue
Minus the Bear have announced plans to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their sophomore effort, Menos El Oso, with a North American tour and a reissue of the 2005 album.
The Seattle rockers have a handful of dates in Tulsa, Okla.; Seattle; and Denton, Texas, before the anniversary tour kicks off on Nov. 3 in Wilmington, North Carolina. The tour will wrap up later that month on Nov. 23 in Portland. Check out a complete schedule at the bottom of the page.
According to a press release, Minus the Bear plan to play Menos El Oso in its entirety, along with “other fan favorites and select new material.” Along the way, the band will be joined by Murder By Death, O’Brother and Aero Flynn. Limited-edition VIP tickets will go on sale July 22, which come with an advance copy of the Menos El Oso reissue, soundcheck viewing, meet-and-greets and exclusive merch. General admission tickets will be available for purchase on July 24.
The Menos El Oso reissue has yet to receive a release date. Most recently, Minus the Bear dropped their fifth full-length, Infinity Overhead, back in 2012.
