Minus the Bear to Reissue ‘They Make Beer Commercials Like This’ and ‘Planet of Ice’
In commemoration of the 10th anniversary of their 2004 EP, 'They Make Beer Commercials Like This,' experimental Seattle indie rockers Minus the Bear have announced its reissue along with 2007's 'Planet of Ice.'
'Beer Commercials' was released between two of Minus the Bear's most beloved full-lengths -- 2002's 'Highly Refined Pirates' and 2005's 'Menos El Oso' -- and contains fan-favorites like 'Pony Up!' and 'Dog Park.' 'Planet of Ice,' however, has gone down as one of the band's most progressive works and was the first to feature keyboardist Alex Rose after Matt Bayles left to concentrate on his producing career.
Stream both albums below:
In addition to the reissues, Minus the Bear are releasing a rarities album called 'Lost Loves' on Oct. 7. They'll be touring in support of it and the anniversary of 'Beer Commercials' beginning in October.
