Album of the Week July 17, 2014 (6 PM) - Minus the Bear "Highly Refined Pirates"

This week, Sara takes us on a journey with Minus the Bear. Since forming in Seattle in 2001, Minus the Bear has worked relentlessly over the past decade to build a large and devoted following worldwide with consistent releases and a non-stop touring regimen... They have proven to be a powerful musical force that has outlasted trends, the changing musical landscape, and a volatile record industry. Their Dangerbird debut, Omni, debuted in the Billboard Top 50, and over the last 11 years they have released four albums and several EPs on varying labels such as Suicide Squeeze, Arena Rock, and Polyvinyl. The band has played countless sold out venues throughout the world both large and small and toured the globe over including North America, Europe, U.K., Japan, and Australia, in addition to unforgettable performances at every high-profile U.S. festival like Bonnaroo, Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Sasquatch!. It is no doubt a testament to the band’s DIY beginnings, impressive relationship with their fans, and inventive music that they remain a beloved group with an unyielding fanbase that continues to grow with each album.
