MINUS THE BEAR CONFIRMS NORTH AMERICAN HEADLINING TOUR

VIDEO FOR SINGLE MY TIME NOW ONLINE

NEW ALBUM OMNI OUT NOW

Seattle-based quintet Minus the Bear is proud to announce the addition of four weeks worth of tour dates on their already successful North American headlining tour. Currently on the west coast with upcoming shows at The Mayan Theatre in Los Angeles and a performance at this year's Sasquatch! Music Festival, the band is on the road in support of their new album OMNI, which debuted in the Top 50 of the Billboard Top 200. The new set of dates begin June 25th in Victoria, BC and include a performance at this year's Lollapalooza. Released May 4th on Dangerbird Records, Alternative Press calls OMNI "An immaculate vacuum of dark-yet-catchy '80s prog and new wave" and "the perfect album to launch [MTB] into another dimension entirely."

Fans can check out the entertaining video for the band's first single, MY TIME, here: http://www.dangerbirdrecords.com/pub...Time_Short.mov

With deep bass lines, provocative lyrics and use of the Japanese Omnichord synthesizer, MY TIME, is a rush of pure electro-pop lust, revealing new layers in the band's songwriting and inimitable musical style.

Boldly experimental yet instantly accessible, OMNI is Minus the Bear's most provocative and potent work to date. Paste Magazine raves, "OMNI is a record to rupture speakers. Dave Knudson's noodling has evolved into heavier, tighter riffing, allowing his Bear bandmates to flex; the result is the group's most explosive record." AOL Spinner goes on to say "each tune on OMNI, though tighter and more focused, will spin heads and warp minds" while The Austin American Statesman raves "OMNI showcases a band expanding its musical palette ... stepping far beyond genre constrictions."

If they fall on a good day for Lollapalooza, I will surely get a ticket. OMNI is unbelievably great.
