Minus The Bear has mapped out a coast-to-coast run of the U.S. this fall in support of the forthcoming studio set "Infinity Overhead."

The Seattle indie rockers will kick off the two-month journey with a Sept. 10 performance in Boise, ID, before making their way east for several dates. The 45-city tour, which includes festival appearances at Chicago's RiotFest (9/15) and Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest (11/2), eventually makes its way to the West Coast and wraps up with a hometown show Nov. 17 in Seattle.

Cursive will handle opening duties for the outing, with Caspian along for the first leg of the trek and Girl In A Coma helping out on the second leg.

Ticket information for the entire outing are on sale now at the band's website, and fans who purchase tickets via the site will receive a free download of a four-song EP featuring all of groups on the tour.

Minus The Bear will release "Infinity Overhead," the outfit's fifth studio set, Aug. 28 via Dangerbird Records. Produced by founding member Matt Bayles, the forthcoming album follows 2010's "Omni," which was produced by Grammy Award winner Joe Chiccarelli (My Morning Jacket, The White Stripes).

Pre-sales for the album are available now via the band's website, and those who purchase the collection in advance will also receive an instant download of the first single, "Diamond Lightning." Various packages are also for sale, including the limited edition "Ultimate Book," which features a 16-page hardcover book, as well as an 180-gram black vinyl, turntable slipmat, autographed lithograph and an exclusive T-shirt.
