According to a filmed welcome from Tim DeLaughter shown before the rock portion of The Polyphonic Spree's 6th Annual Holiday Extravaganza, the Spree's next record will officially be titled The Fragile Army. A release date is unknown but the band has been working in Dallas with the ultratalented producer John Congleton (also of The Paperchase).
Mike Mills, the writer/director of the film Thumbsucker, described the Spree --
I think The Spree is all about fragility - as big and happy as they can sound, they are sort of 'The Fragile Army' to me. I am very lucky I got to meet all these people and that they helped me so much as a person and as a filmmaker - It makes life seem really exciting.Mills might have known the title at the time or based on his quote, DeLaughter and band confirmed this title.
More details of the record can be heard in the IndieInterviews September podcast with Tim DeLaughter.
