Postal Service to reunite

Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie and Dntel's Jimmy Tamborello are reactivating their side project The Postal Service just in time for the 10th anniversary of the band's excellent, and only, album, "Give Up." In April, Sub Pop will release the "Give Up: Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition" on CD, vinyl, and digital download featuring remixes, covers, live versions, and, yes, two new songs. (Apparently, "Give Up" is Sub Pop's second best selling album ever, just after Nirvana's Bleach.) According to Billboard, Postal Service will play Coachella and other live shows this year.

  3. LinkMan says:

    I think “reunite” is kind of the wrong word since the whole point of the Postal Service was that they were in two different geographic locations and snail mailed the tracks back and forth as they worked on them.

    Maybe “found some more stamps”?

    Wake me up when there’s news about Figurine. (And listen to Figurine, which is, in my opinion, Jimmy Tamborello’s best work.)

  8. JOY! First we get a new Stolen Babies album, now this!
