Minus The Bear have premiered their new track "Lonely Gun" on RollingStone.com. The song, which Rolling Stone exclaimed "packs a punch with charging, acrobatic-sounding guitars woven through a pop-friendly chorus, is from the band's forthcoming album, Infinity Overhead, due August 28 on Dangerbird Records.
"Lonely Gun," as singer/guitarist Jake Snider remarks, "came out of a deep depression. I was thinking about how lonely an unused gun must be, its purpose unfulfilled, like a loveless relationship. The only way to allow its purpose is to hold it - to use it."
For the Seattle-based band's fifth record, they reunited with longtime producer and former founding member Matt Bayles (Mastodon, Isis, Cursive). The LP is a guitar-laden 10-track album that is as heavy on the band's trademark technicality as it is on pop songcraft.
