It has been a long and fruitful career for indie rock veterans Minus the Bear, but after 17 years and six full-length studio albums, the band announced they will be calling it quits after releasing an EP and going on tour later this year.
The band has shared 2018 North American dates that they say will be their final tour. The new shows are scheduled to begin in early October and extend into December. The opening acts on select concerts will be Caspian or Tera Melos. Stay tuned, we will be updating this page if additional concerts or information becomes available.

The band shared a heartfelt message about the decision on their website:
After almost two decades of writing and touring the world together, we have decided to close this chapter of our lives as Minus the Bear.
What started as a silly inside joke inside the dingy confines of Seattle’s original Cha Cha Lounge back in 2001 quickly snowballed into years of adventures, creativity, and friendship. We could have never predicted the wild journey about to begin. We’ve accomplished so much over the past 17 years, and we are grateful for the experience.
Undoubtedly we owe all of these adventures to you, our fans. Without all of you, the memories of traveling the world, exploring different cultures, and witnessing the delight of your beautiful faces singing along wouldn’t have been possible. Your support weathered us through storms that easily could have scuttled the band. Throughout the years, it’s you who kept us going. We cannot thank you enough.
This Autumn we head out on our final tour in support of our upcoming 4-song EP Fair Enough courtesy of Suicide Squeeze Records.
These final shows are a celebration for the community of fans who gave us so much through years of dedication. We’ll be digging deep in the MTB catalogue and we are honored for the opportunity to play our hearts out for you one last time.
Alex, Cory, Dave & Jake
