Passing over Kickstarter and instead going the route of Pledge Music, which gives a portion of the proceeds donated to a charity of the group’s choosing, Minus The Bear are seeking pledges for the release of Acoustics 2. The release will feature eight acoustic takes on fan favorites, as well as two new songs that will likely premiere ahead of the album’s release. You can find the donation page here.
A note posted by the band on their project page reads:
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!
