by | Jul 11, 2013

Minus The Bear are putting the final touches on a follow-up release to 2008’s Acoustics EP.

Titled Acoustics II, the 10-song effort will include two new tracks and reworked acoustic versions of previously released material. To help fund the release the band launched a Pledgemusic campaign — more info on that can be found here.
