Minus The Bear Equal the Road

Sometimes I wonder if bands choose their names specifically to make the TMT news page. Now, I am unfortunately aware of "other" music news sources that attempt to use humor in their headlines, but for the sake of argument, we will either ignore them or just assume they don't have to deal with coming up with said humor themselves. To remain on point: Minus The Bear. I mean, seriously. Minus The Bear, Add the Stingray? Minus The Bear, Multiple the Snakes? Minus The Bear, Use Differential Equations to Make A Quickly Dated Joke? Well, Minus The Bear, I'm hip to your schemes. From this point on, this is going to be a straight-up no-nonsense news story:

Minus The Bear are touring this fall. The tour starts on October 5 in Chicago and ends on November 10 in San Francisco. Other acts on the tour are P.O.S., The Velvet Teen, and Russian Circles. The band line up consists of Dave Knudson, Jake Snider, Erin Tate, and Cory Murchy. They sound like "ting ting ting ting, ting-ting ting ting ting."
