Polyphonic Spree – Album, TV Appearances And Tour

Hollywood Records has announced a July 13 release date for Together We’re Heavy, the highly anticipated second album from The Polyphonic Spree. In stark contrast to The Spree’s debut, The Beginning Stages Of…, which was recorded in two days and only intended as a demo to help the young group book gigs, Together We’re Heavy is the result of over a year’s work in the studio by the band and producers Eric Drew Feldman (Frank Black, Sparklehorse, Tripping Daisy) and The Speekers. The substantial advances in songwriting and production on songs that have emerged as live favorites in the last year, including the anthemic “Two Thousand Places” and “Hold Me Now,” “Diamonds/Mild Devotion To Majesty” and the epic “When The Fool Becomes A King” mark the realization of this incredible ensemble. See below for a full track list.

Audiences will get a sneak preview of the new record during their upcoming tour with rock legend David Bowie. The much-talked-about road show begins March 29 at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia. Dates have recently been added to the tour in New York, Los Angeles, Berkeley, Santa Barbara and Anaheim, California; see below for the full itinerary.

The group will also perform on NBC’s “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno on April 21 and will perform “Light & Day” during their appearance on the April 20 episode of the hit NBC-TV sitcom “Scrubs.” “We’re all huge music fans on ‘Scrubs’ and are always looking for interesting, organic ways to incorporate music into the show,” says “Scrubs” supervising producer Neil Goldman. “When a bunch of us got a chance to experience The Polyphonic Spree live, we immediately sparked to the idea of not only featuring their music, but the band itself. We’re a show that loves to push the envelope creatively, and obviously so does the group, so it seemed like a perfect match for us.”
