The collective reveal all about their festive production

The Polyphonic Spree are coming back with a musical production called ‘The Polyphonic Spree Christmas Carol’ which they are hoping to take on tour through major North American cities.

Tim Delaughter, leader of the band, also revealed that they have several projects on the boil, including a collaboration with Kanye West producer Jon Brion called Collab and a batch of cover versions (including their interpretation of Nirvana’s ‘Lithium’) awaiting release.

He told MTV.com “The music and performance have always lent itself to a theatrical experience and now we’re incorporating both. That’s inevitable for us — we’re obviously gonna be heading that way in the future.”

Delaughter said he was also looking forward to completing work on the band’s long awaited new album.

“I’m super excited about it,” he said “It’s definitely gonna have more rock than we’ve had in the past and a specific narrative to accompany it. No one’s heard us do anything like this.”

The album, which will be the follow up to 2004’s ‘Together We’re Heavy’, is set to be released in spring of 2006.
