The Postal Service Reunion Is On
There is truth! Love is real! The Postal Service are getting back together! The Ben Gibbard/Jimmy Tamborello duo barely spent any time touring behind their excellently starry-eyed 2003 sad-bastard synthpop classic Give Up, but the album went on to become massively cult-beloved anyway. For years, we waited on a follow-up, and one never materialized. And based on what Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello have been saying in interviews lately, we probably still won’t get a new album, but we might get a chance to see them live. The Postal Service now have a website, and the only thing up there is that graphic you see above. All we know, then, is that a reunion is happening; we don’t yet know what form it’ll take. But it’s probably not a coincidence that this news is coming out so close to the Coachella lineup announcement.
UPDATE: Billboard confirms the bands is planning a deluxe edition of Give Up and multiple live dates, including Coachella.
