Gomez, Polyphonic Spree Tour Between Lollapalooza Gigs

Hollywood Records / Good Records recording artists The Polyphonic Spree have been added to the main stage lineup on this summer’s star-studded Lollapalooza tour. The blockbuster traveling festival, which begins July 15th at the White River Amphitheatre in Auburn, WA, will see the choral symphonic pop group playing the second night in each market and sharing the stage with the The Flaming Lips, Wilco, the String Cheese Incident and Gomez, among others. In between Lollapalooza dates, The Polyphonic Spree will co-headline a tour with Gomez and opening act The Thrills beginning July 16 in Vancouver, Canada. The tours will see a new Polyphonic Spree, as the band plan to turn in their trademark white garb for vibrant Technicolor robes. Says DeLaughter of the change, “We’ve earned our colors.” See below for tour dates and venues.

The Polyphonic Spree, who recently wrapped up an arena tour with headliner David Bowie, are gearing up for the release of their highly anticipated second album Together We’re Heavy, which hits retail on July 13. Hollywood / Good Records have announced plans to issue a specially low-priced double double-disc set that includes a DVD loaded with special features. Simultaneously with the CD release, Hollywood Records / Good Records will issue a limited-edition gatefold/double-vinyl LP set.

The highlighted content includes live versions of fan favorites “It’s The Sun,” “Light & Day,” “Hanging Around,” “Soldier Girl” and “When The Fool Becomes A King” (all pulled from Japan’s 2003 Summersonic Festival); concert recordings from the band’s 2003 gig at Metro in Chicago; an exclusive interview with DeLaughter; animated and concert version videos of hit single “Light & Day”; and the “Quest for the Rest” game, in which animated Spree members search for the rest of the band in exotic environments.
