Postal Service To Reunite & Tour

January 21, 2013

 

The Postal Service, the synth-pop duo of Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello, is reuniting for the 10th anniversary of its only album, 2003's "Give Up." 

After years of inactivity, the group's website now features a graphic that reads, "The Postal Service 2013." As part of the reunion, Sub Pop is prepping a deluxe edition of "Give Up" next month to commemorate the album's 10-year anniversary, Billboard has learned. Since being released on Feb. 19, 2003, the set became Sub Pop's second highest-selling album, next to Nirvana's "Bleach.

Touring plans are also in the works. As Brooklyn Vegan first teased earlier this month with a cryptic post titled "Postal Service reunion in the works" with three related links all tied to Coachella, the band is indeed booked to play this year's festival, according to three sources who confirmed to Billboard. Additional dates and festivals are also in the works. The band is booked by indie agency Billions, and already has an active page on the company's site

Whether the reunion means actual new music, however, remains in question. Just this past October, while promoting solo album Former Lives, Gibbard told Spinner, "There are no plans to make a second [Postal Servie] record...I can't say that enough." 

The Postal Service formed after Gibbard, the frontman of Death Cab For Cutie, contributed vocals to the song "(This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan," a 2002 song by producer Tamborello's Dntel project. Gibbard and Tamborello decided to create a full album together, with Tamborello sending Gibbard instrumentals and the Death Cab frontman sending them back with vocals (hence the band's name).
