Polyphonic Spree Go On The Road With The Fragile Army This Summer

By: Christy Mannering
The summer of 2007 is shaping up to be one of the most jammed and music-filled summers of the new millennium. Polyphonic Spree have announced tour dates in support of The Fragile Army, coming out on TVT Records on June 19. Their first show will be in their hometown on June 23rd at the Granada Theatre in Dallas, Texas.

The Polyphonic Spree are an amazing group to hear on your stereo, consisting of a 10-person choir and pair of keyboardists, as well as a percussionist, drummer, bassist, guitarist, flautist, trumpeter, trombonist, violinist, violist, harpist, French horn player, a pedal steel player and theremin player; all-in-all there are 23 members. Tim DeLaughter is to thank for the lead vocals. Other prominent members include Mark Pirro and Bryan Wakeland. The three musicians used to be part of the band Tripping Daisy but when their drummer died in 1999, they disbanded. In May of 2002 the first Polyphonic Spree album was released and the eclectic band became an experimental sensation.

The Fragile Army is the Spree’s third full length album. Fans have a sense of what the album will be like since the group changed up the track list after the originally announced list leaked online earlier this spring. The new line-up will include a newer version of their hit “Mental Cabaret” from the Wait (EP) which was released in September of 2006. This summer season is going to be a polyphonic smash!
