Acoustics II

Minus the Bear releases unplugged and re-imagined classics with two new songs on new ten song LP.


of goal


We’re in the process of putting the finishing touches on a new album, the follow-up to Acoustics, appropriately titled Acoustics II. The process of deconstructing these songs inspired us so much we wrote a couple new ones for this release.

But before we put this out, we thought we’d try things a little different this time. We want to give you a special experience with this release.

Your pledge pre-orders the album.

Your pledge also unlocks some behind the scenes content and surprises, including one surprise that we’re really excited about. An instant download of the track “Hooray” is also included with every pledge.

Did we mention we’re also going on tour? We’ll be adding a special “acoustic mini set” to our fully electric rock shows this fall. Can’t wait for everyone to experience Acoustics II!
