It has been ten years since the release of the well-loved record, and so it is only fitting that fans get to relive the magic in its entirety, in addition to other tunes from the band’s catalogue.

Minus the Bear are excited to announce the 10 year anniversary tour for Planet of Ice, the breakthrough third full-length album for the band. Released in August 2007 on Suicide Squeeze Records, the fan favorite album was the first release for the indie band to chart on the Billboard 200. Upon its release, Planet of Ice won high praise from Spin as “elegant and maturely conceived,” while AV Club noted the innovative instrumentation and songwriting, enamored by the way “the disc uncoils with a sinister playfulness.” Playing Planet of Ice in its entirety among other selections from their expansive catalog, the Seattle band will make stops in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Austin and many other cities before culminating in a hometown show at The Showbox on June 13th.
