Most shows in the concert hall at the Warsaw feel crowded. So, when the 24 members of the Polyphonic Spree take the stage on July 1, you can bet that it won’t be just the audience packed in like sardines.

The Spree, which consists of a live choir as well as a pile of instrumentalists, is tackling serious issues on its third full-length album, “The Fragile Army.”

In addition, the Texas-bred prog rock troop has ditched its signature robes and picked up military-inspired black uniforms to match the political nature of the album.

“We are so caught up with what we’re doing on earth; this religion, that country, this leader, that leader,” Spree co-founder Julie Doyle told GO Brooklyn. “The human race is a fragile army.”

Certainly not the crowd expected to descend upon the Warsaw for their show, though. “We love Brooklyn,” Doyle said. “I don’t think we’ve ever had a bad show here. It’s just a different vibe. There’s just that special energy — it’s like a little country of its own.”

The Polyphonic Spree will play at 9 pm on July 1 at Warsaw (261 Driggs Ave., at Eckford Street in Greenpoint). $25. For information, call (718) 387-5252.
