The Postal Service to reunite in 2013: New tour to include Coachella appearance
It's been 10 years since Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello released The Postal Service's one and only album, "Give Up," and the two musicians are celebrating the band's big anniversary in style. Only a couple months after "Give Up" finally went platinum, it's been announced that The Postal Service is releasing a deluxe issue of the album as well as holding a 2013 tour that will include a Coachella appearance.
Rumors of a reunion were first started by Brooklyn Vegan, and the band's new website seemingly confirmed that something big was happening in 2013. Now Billboard has the official word that The Postal Service is booked to play at Coachella and will also perform at additional dates and festivals throughout the year.
The special edition of "Give Up" will be released in February. No word if there will be new songs on the album, but don't expect for a whole new Postal Service record to come out any time soon. Gibbard told Spinner recently that "there are no plans to make a second [Postal Servie] record ... I can't say that enough."
The Postal Service is following in the footsteps of Justin Timberlake and Destiny's Child with its surprising new music announcement. Which album reveal has been your favorite so far, and who else would you like to see make more music?
