Looking for an early taste of Minus the Bear‘s upcoming endeavors? Well, you’re in luck…

In support of its forthcoming studio album, the Seattle outfit will hop on the tour bus to introduce fans to do a bit of road testing. The band has announced plans for a month long North American headlining tour that will begin October 30th in Eugene, Oregon, proceeded by warm up dates in the Northwest and New York. Tickets for the newly announced dates will go on sale beginning Friday, September 11th via Ticketmaster.com.

But that’s not all. On October 27th, Minus the Bear will release the album’s first single, “Into The Mirror, and a b-side titled “Broken China” as a special 7″ and through digital music stores.

As previously reported, the followup to 2007’s Planet of Ice, which is slated for release in early 2010, promises to “expand on Minus the Bear’s complex and exciting brand of rock n roll.”

“This album has more scope than the past records,” says guitarist Dave Knudson, “some songs are more poppy and immediate while others expand on the complexities we’re known for.”
