Jubilation provocateurs The Polyphonic Spree have announced that they record their upcoming show at New York City’s Webster Hall for a live album and DVD to be released in the coming months. Taking place this Wednesday on May 23, frontman Tim DeLaughter explains in a press release that “NYC was our first home away from home in the States. We went from very small crowds in Texas to the UK for for the Meltdown Festival curated by David Bowie in 2002, then straight to New York to play eight shows in seven days on our ‘layover’ back to Dallas. Our friend took all of our first photos in Williamsburg near the East River (before it was developed) and the rest is history. New York embraced us from the get go. Cynicism wasn’t part of it, ironically. We toured so much overseas initially, and coming ‘back to the States and feeling at home’ meant Brooklyn and Manhattan.”

In addition to the live release, the band is planning to record a Christmas album this fall before taking part in their annual Holiday Extravaganza, which they’ve staged in their hometown of Dallas for the last nine years, across the country for the first time. The Polyphonic Spree has also commenced recording of a new original album, their first since 2007’s The Fragile Army, with the hope of releasing it sometime in 2013.
