Minus The Bear Announce ‘Acoustics II’ Release Details

Minus The Bear released an EP titled Acoustics back in 2008; now, a sequel of sorts (the daftly titled Acoustics II) will come out on October 1. Just like the prior EP, it will be primarily acoustic tracks. The artwork has come out for it, as has the tracklisting.
