Minus The Bear: New Album + Tour Dates

Minus The Bear released one of my absolute favorite albums of 2005, Menos El Oso. It was angular rock music at its best, yet refreshingly light and poppy at the same time. I basically listened to it non-stop for months until my roommates got annoyed at me. Anyway, I'm super excited because Minus The Bear's new album Planet of Ice hits the shelves tomorrow. Early reviews call it Pink Floyd-inspired psychedelic rock music--something that I don't really hear in their lead single "Knights." But whatever, the song sounds fucking awesome so make sure to buy their album tomorrow!
