The Postal Service have confirmed a 2013 reunion. They will release a deluxe reissue of Give Up next month, and will reunite to play Coachella. Check out a report after the jump.
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.
