Minus The Bear announce Menos El Oso 10th anniversary tour, celebrate a decade of beautiful spanglish

It’s been a tightly-guarded secret for years, but the cat’s out of the bag now. The title of Minus The Bear’s second record, 2005’s Menos El Oso, translates to… Minus The Bear. That’s right, it’s the very name of the band that put out the record that Minusheads (as fans of Minus The Bear prefer to be called) have been trying to crack the code of MEO for years, all to no avail. So why are Minus The Bear pulling back the curtain on one of rock’s greatest secrets now? Because it’s the 10th anniversary of Menos El Oso, silly.

In celebration of their big boy’s big day, the proud fathers in Minus The Bear have planned a series of live dates in which they play their little bundle of joy in its entirety. Accompanying them on all dates will be beaming godfathers Aero Flynn, while certain other dates will feature support from Murder By Death and O’Brother, who are, I don’t know, uncles, I guess. ¡Ay, caramba!

For those with agoraphobia, as well as people who simply do not live in a city that Minus The Bear will be playing in, the band has announced a forthcoming LP reissue of Menos El Oso. No details on that currently, though fans who buy a VIP package to one of the 10th anniversary dates will receive, as part of a package, an advance copy of the reissue. Live mas.
