Minus the Bear formed in Seattle, Washington, by guitarist Dave Knudson, bassist Cory Murchy and drummer Erin Tate in 2001. The trio later brought guitarist/vocalist Jake Snider and keyboardist/producer Matt Bayles into the fold to round out the lineup. Each member of Minus the Bear previously performed in groups around Seattle such as Botch (Dave Knudson), Kill Sadie (Cory Murchy and Erin Tate) and Sharks Keep Moving (Jake Snider). Each member’s unique style helped to create Minus the Bear’s complex math rock sound.
Mixing melodies with electronic samples and plenty of complex guitar riffs, Minus the Bear unleashed its first EP, This Is What I Know about Being Gigantic on Seattle’s Suicide Squeeze records. With Gigantic, Minus the Bear became known as the band with long, nonsensical song titles such as “Just Kickin' It Like A Wild Donkey" and "Potato Juice & Liquid Bread." In 2002, the album was followed by the EP Bands Like It When You Yell "Yar!" at Them.
Later that year, Minus the Bear released its first full-length album Highly Refined Pirates. The album’s song titles were inspired by quotes from the 1997 film Starship Troopers. Highly Refined Pirates featured the songs “Thanks for the Killer Game of Crisco Twister” and “Get Me Naked 2: Electric Boogaloo.” In 2004, Minus the Bear released They Make Beer Commercials like This, featuring the songs “Let’s Play Clowns” and “Dog Park.”
Minus the Bear’s second full-length album Menos el Oso was released in 2005 and featured the single “Pachuca Sunrise.” After keyboardist Matt Bayles left the band in 2006, Minus the Bear recruited Alex Rose. The new lineup released its third full-length album Planet of Ice in 2007, featuring the singles “Knights” and “Throwin’ Shapes.” Catch Minus the Bear as they continue to promote Planet of Ice in 2008 when you order Minus the Bear tickets at OnlineTickets.com!
