The Polyphonic Spree - Yes, It's True (2013)

5/22/13 11:08PM


Here's an update; so apparently the cover art they shared with the Kickstarter update was premature? or maybe there could be 2 covers?

They are playing at The Varsity Theater again on June 28th, although I may or may not go. Considering the number of concerts lined up right now this Summer (Josh Rouse, Fitz and the Tantrums and Yes) I may have to think more about that show.

Also the official Street/Release date for this album is August 6th I guess.

So below is a press release for The Polyphonic Spree's upcoming LP "Yes, It's True" sent as an update to the Kickstarter Backers (as I am). May 28th release date.

Also included were 2 songs, 1 which I heard most of "You Plus Me" which isn't on the album, sounded very Orchestral? or Pastoral? was odd, and had no vocals from what I could tell. "You Don't Know Me," which is the 1st track on Yes, It's True, sounds more traditional in their spiritual pop style.

'Yes It's True,' Rock's "Heavenly Choir" The Polyphonic Spree Return, 5.28

On 'Yes, It's True' (May 28, Good Records) - The Polyphonic Spree's first studio album of original material since 2007 - "the idiosyncratic Dallas symphonic pop collective" (Los Angeles Times) delivers its most personally charged work to date while retaining the "exuberance of a heavenly choir" (NPR).

Frontman Tim DeLaughter describes 'Yes, It's True' as the band's most unorthodox recording session to date, producing the album in stages and recording a holiday release midway through tracking. As a result, the 11 tracks are particularly diverse, ranging from the euphoric "You Don't Know Me" and somberly anthemic “Blurry Up The Lines," to the reflective “Battlefield,” which DeLaughter describes as his "most personal contribution."
'Yes, It's True' caps a whirlwind 2012 for The Polyphonic Spree in which the band recorded two albums, traversed the US on two tours, debuted their rendition of 'Rocky Horror Picture Show' in London, captured a live concert DVD, and released 'Holidaydream: Sounds of the Season Vol. 1.' The band has released four studio albums, headlined major US and international festivals, and even performed at the 2004 Nobel Peace Prize Concert.
