Nearly 10 years after they released their extremely popular debut album, Give Up, The Postal Service have cryptically announced a comeback. On a brand new website, visitors are greeted with a rather straightforward message: “The Postal Service: 2013.” That’s all we have to go on, but the timing is kind of curious what with Coachella due to announce its lineup any day now, and the 10 year anniversary of Give Up approaching on February 18th.
Billboard reports that The Postal Service will be reissuing Give Up for its 10 year anniversary and also claims the band will be playing at this year’s Coachella and “other tour dates.” No word on if the duo will be releasing any new material.
Just in case you live under a rock: The Postal Service is an American electronic musical group composed of vocalist Ben Gibbard (of Death Cab for Cutie) and producer Jimmy Tamborello (of Dntel and Headset). The band’s name was chosen due to the way in which it produced its songs. Tamborello wrote and performed instrumental tracks and then sent the DATs to Gibbard, who edited the song as he saw fit (adding his vocals along the way), sending them back to Tamborello via the United States Postal Service.
