Seattle math rock-meets-electronic indie band Minus the Bear has been going strong for 12 years now, spending most of its time on the road or in the studio. As a testament to how much the band tours, take a look at how many times we've reviewed the band over the years.
So it's no surprise that Minus the Bear is back in support of its fifth full length album, Infinity Overhead. The band decided to take a back to basics approach and worked with producer Matt Bayles, who left the band in 2006 to focus on his producing career.
"I think we all have the same vision as far as wanting to do this for as long as it's making us happy and fun," says bassist Cory Murchy on the band's longevity, "So far so good, we're lucky it's turned into our jobs and we're stoked for that."
We recently caught up with Murchy to discuss working with Matt Bayles, the band's relentless tour schedule, and why Minus the Bear has strayed away from silly song titles.
