The Polyphonic Spree are set to perform songs from cult musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show at a Halloween show in London later this year.
The band will be playing songs from the 1973 musical – which was turned into a film in 1975 – at London’s HMV Forum on October 31. The band will also perform tracks from their back catalogue. The event will kick off at 7pm and punters who show up in fancy dress will receive a free drink.
Last year, The Polyphonic Spree launched their first single in four years as an interactive iPad app. ‘Bullseye’ was created with Moonbot Studios and the video allowed fans to control a character named You-Me, who was based on a sketch by the band’s leader Tim DeLaughter.
The band have been involved in a wide range of projects since releasing their last album ‘The Fragile Army’ in 2007. They were commissioned to write a song for US soccer team FC Dallas, titled ‘H-O-O-P-S Yes’.
In 2009, DeLaughter wrote the theme song for Steven Spielberg’s US TV show United States Of Tara and later that year, the frontman composed and performed the score for a new DVD art project entitled Wee See.
