Minus The Bear music arrives in October

Minus The Bear will release new album Lost Loves on Oct. 7 via Dangerbird Records.

The Seattle quintet will do a club tour this fall in support of it as well as the 10th anniversary re-release of their fan favorite EP, They Make Beer Commercials Like This.

Lost Loves follows Infinity Overhead, which reached #31 on the Billboard 200, Minus The Bear's highest charting album to date. Songs were culled from the band's last seven or so years of writing, recording and releasing records.

"Inevitably some of your favorite songs are going to be cut in the necessity of creating the right sequence for that particular time," says bassist Cory Murchy. "Regardless of the reason they weren't included, it wasn't for lack of love and appreciation of the songs themselves." Somewhat by chance the black sheep that didn't quite fit in with Planet of Ice, OMNI, and Infinity Overhead coalesce among their once regretfully forsaken peers. "Perhaps it's because they didn't make the past albums that they fit so seamlessly together," muses Murchy.

That each song was out of place on more conceptual releases is a harbinger of what to expect from Lost Loves. As the band began metaphorically reaching out to the "ones that got away" from past sessions, additional recording and vocals were completed for select tracks. "As a whole," says Murchy, "this collection of songs offers as strong a package as any other album we've put together."
