Seattle WA: Minus the Bear will play three festivals and add new tour dates to support their video & new single “Hold Me Down”. The second single from OMNI follows the band’s rock roots and elevates it into what might be their most arena ready single. “Hold Me Down” is a brood-to-a-soar rock gem of a song while OMNI’s first single “My Time” is more synth pop; the two songs combined capture the essence of Minus the Bear perfectly. Both are quite divergent in the rock spectrums and both are the distinct pop sound of Minus the Bear.
While still glowing in the success of OMNI with plenty of worldwide touring and great receptions at video / radio outlets, MtB continue working hard promoting the record.
A couple festivals have been added as well as headlining dates throughout the South. Festivals include the Hangout Festival (the Foo Fighters headlining) & the Wakarusa Music Festival (My Morning Jacket and Ben Harper & Relentless 7 headlining).
