Minus The Bear Celebrate 10 Years Of Planet Of Ice
Seattle natives Minus The Bear combine sophisticated math rock time signatures with ear-burrowing melodies and tongue-in-cheek lyrics (with song titles Monkey!!! Knife!!! Fight!!! and Lemurs, Man, Lemurs, the quartet indeed marches to the beat of their own intriguing odd-metered drums). Bursting out of the windy city with their prog-tinged indie rock in 2001, the band hit their stride six years later with the release of seminal fan favorite Planet Of Ice. Don't miss gifted innovators on the 10th Anniversary Tour of the album this Spring and Summer!
Planet Of Ice is filled with driving anthems comprised of MTB's signature hypnotic guitar riffs and unexpected rhythm changes, yet shows a darker more contemplative side to the band. While they take a cerebral approach to their expertly crafted, intricate compositions, their live shows are still charged with electrifying rock and roll grit when epic tunes like Lotus and Dr. L'Ling descend into lick-laden, mosh-inducing jams.
