The Bare Minimum are a Toronto skate-punk band in the tradition of S.N.F.U, Propagandhi, and Belvedere with video game inspired riffs and a self-heckling sense of humour. Their wide stylistic range, from thrash ragers to acoustic scream-a-longs, is threaded together by their catchy, frantic delivery. Somewhere between irony and nihilism, The Bare Minimum subvert pop songs into meditations on bar culture, post-everything boredom, and scene politics.
Besides haunting basement bars and house parties, The Bare Minimum have played CMW, NXNE, Pouzza Fest and toured Ontario in a hilariously tiny car. ‘Sink to the Top’ (2017) is the follow up album to their debut full length ‘Hit After Hit’ (2014).
