The Polyphonic Spree began July 15, 2000 as one man’s desire to hear a sound he dreamt about; before most bands over the last decade, that are often compared in sound and vision to the Spree, were 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. 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 Polyphonic Spree will be celebrating its 15th year by performing The Beginning Stages of… in its entirety as well as some deep cuts, choice covers, and some other surprises thrown in for good measure. Often imitated but never duplicated the psychphonic ensemble The Polyphonic Spree moves forward on its path.
