The Polyphonic Spree began on July 15, 2000 as one man’s desire to
hear a sound he dreamed about; before most bands that are often compared in sound and vision to the Spree were even formed. The Polyphonic Spree have traversed the globe several times over, much to the dismay of those that thought the band would never leave its hometown of Dallas, TX. They have appeared at every major music festival and late night television program.
The Polyphonic Spree has ranged in size from 13 to 27 members. It
has never been about the size but about the sound. The band currently has 21 active members.
The Polyphonic Spree have released five full length studio albums up
to this point: The Beginning Stages of…, Together We’re Heavy, The
Fragile Army, Holidaydream, and Yes, It’s True. They recently released Psychphonic, a remix/reimagination album of the complete Yes, It's True full length.
Founder Tim DeLaughter has also scored the motion pictures Thumbsucker
and Visioneers. He also wrote and performed the Emmy nominated
theme song for the Showtime series The United States of Tara.
The band will be celebrating its 15th year by performing their debut album The Beginning Stages of… in its entirety as well as some deep cuts,
choice covers, and some other surprises thrown in for good measure. The UK/Europe portion of the tour runs the majority of September. The US/North America leg of the tour is mid October to mid November.
