Annapolis | Website
This event occurred in the past.
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 band 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. In 2010 the Fort Worth, TX based band, Telegraph Canyon released The Tide and The Current on Velvet Blue Music. Whatever the expectations were for the album, none anticipated the level of success The Tide and the Current enjoyed. Following the release of the LP the band's Texas shows brought greater opportunities as the septet found themselves in front of larger and more diverse audiences. Telegraph Canyon's regional fan base quickly expanded. Over the next two and a half years the band toured throughout the U.S. and Europe on the momentum of that surge, while their songs, praised by Rolling Stone as having "irresistible choruses," appeared in multiple films and television shows. Now, five years removed from the release of their sophomore album, the band prepares to issue it's follow-up, You From Before.
