MINUS STORY announce new album My Ion Truss; offer free MP3

Anyone who has had the opportunity of seeing Minus Story perform live knows that they are meant to be on stage. On June 19, the pride of Lawrence, Kansas releases its fourth album, “My Ion Truss”. June and July will be spent on the
road, presenting these songs the way they should be heard: live and loud.

Ruminations on the new album:
In the distance the land kisses the sky. If you squint just right you can see Minus Story in flux there, somewhere between earthbound and ethereal, making sunspots on the horizon line with their noisy & melodic headphone pop. Reared together in America’s Midwestern cradle, Minus Story speak their own codified musical language as only childhood friends can share. Tirelessly artistic yet unpretentious, they are unafraid of abject noise, folk, soul, or straight-up pop rock.

My Ion Truss is Minus Story’s Studio Album. It was recorded at Electrical Audio in Chicago with John Congleton (Explosions In the Sky, The Polyphonic Spree). Having a producer behind the controls for the first time allowed them to work more collectively as a band, giving them the freedom to record the primary tracks completely live. It is the closest thing to Minus Story’s cathartic live show that they’ve put to tape to date. The result is an epic & anthemic cross between Pearl Jam, Queen, Brian Eno, and Roxy Music.
