After nearly 20 years together, beloved indie band Minus the Bear are calling it quits. The Seattle-based group revealed the news on their website earlier this week, along with a big batch of final tour dates. The Farewell Tour will kick off on October 9 in Nashville at 3rd & Lindsley, followed by shows throughout the Southeast, Midwest and Eastern Seaboard. After a run through Texas, California and Portland, the tour will wrap up in their hometown of Seattle at The Showbox. Caspian and Tera Melos will act as support for varying dates.

“These final shows are a celebration for the community of fans who gave us so much through years of dedication. We’ll be digging deep in the MTB catalogue and we are honored for the opportunity to play our hearts out for you one last time,” said the band in their official statement.

In addition to the aforementioned news, the group also revealed a new four-track EP, Fair Enough, due out on October 19. Tickets to the final Minus the Bear tour go on sale July 20; check below for the full list of stops.
