Hallelujah! The Polyphonic Spree have returned with an album that takes up where ‘The Beginning Stages Of…’ ended last summer. The Spree, now clad in a rainbow of robes, have not lost any of the energy, power, evangelism or glee that has converted so many fans to the cause. The sections of ‘Together We’re Heavy’ carry on from ‘The Beginning Stages Of…’ numerically and musically as the echoes of ‘A Long Day’ can be heard straight away. If there was any doubt that they could pull it off again for the second album then it was completely unfounded. This album is more magical and infectious than you could ever have wished for.

This could be the year for the Polyphonic Spree to get the recognition they deserve – They are headlining on Lollapalooza, have a special London date lined up (details to follow) and had to disappoint a couple of thousand fans when they filled the 10,000 capacity Stubbs Outdoor Barbeque at this years South By South West.
The uplifting and joyous ‘Hold Me Now’ will be the first single released from this album on 26 July.
