Polyphonic Spree - US tour?

As this band is enjoying popularity in the UK and the fact that Tim DeLaughter, who led Tripping Daisy is part of the group does anyone know if there are future plans for the Poly's to tour here in the states (I know a recent US gig was at CMJ's music fest in NYC). I love their single "Soldier Girl" and have their album on order.

They are playing three CMJ shows next week (it hasn't happened yet), I'll catch one of them. As far as a full tour is concerned, I'm not sure.

My sense of time and everything is all out of whack, I should try to make it up to NYC to see one of the shows (if they aren't sold out).

Sounds like the Saturday performance isn't really open to the public but to those with Fest passes. Yancey, have you been to Brooklyn Lyceum venue? Good acoustics?

They are a really wonderful group with a lot of great guys. Check them out if you get a chance; i'm not sure if they'll ever have a huge following in the US, but they are still fun to see.

I haven't been to the Lyceum, but I've been told it's a great venue. It's a converted bathhouse.

Question in regards to their live shows, I would assume they sing most, if not all, of their (so far) only album, is this true? The two-part UK 'live' CD Singles are a great peak into the reorchestrated songs as performed before an audience. Read somewhere that a new album is slated for release later in the year - can't wait.

If I'd known about this tour earlier, I'd be on my way to Tempe right now...
