Here at The ‘Burg, we love promoting artists from all over the world, but it’s particularly sweet when we get to promote awesome musicians from right here in the Pacific Northwest. Minus the Bear, is a favorite among many DJ’s at the station and it just so happens the band is out of Seattle.

Minus the Bear

Formed in 2001, Minus the Bear is an indie rock band that experiments in the electronic. The five-man group is comprised of Jake Snider (Vocals, guitar), Dave Knudson (guitar), Cory Murchy (bass) and Alex Rose (synths, voclas) and Erin Tate (drums). Most of the five were members of other Seattle bands of various genres before coming together to form Minus the Bear.

Infinity Overhead is the title of the band’s most recent album which dropped in August of last year. Infinity Overhead was a much anticipated follow-up to their 2010 released album Omni.

Absolutepunk.net gave the Infinity Overhead album an 8.5 out of 10 saying:

“ -auspicious early tracks exhibit the Seattle quintet’s taut melody-making skills in full effect, but in spite of their effortless way with mid-tempo gems, it’s when they venture into relatively uncharted territory for them– lush balladry– that Minus the Bear achieve Infinity Overhead’s defining moment.”

We recommend checking out “Diamond Lightning,” “Listing,” and “Lies and Eyes” off the Infinity Overhead album.

Minus the Bear will be performing in Seattle at Showbox at the Market on November 8th. Listen today (10/28) between 1 and 3 p.m and again between 6 and 8 p.m. for a chance to win one of two pairs of tickets we will be giving away!
