The Postal Service Announce First Headline Gigs For 10 Years

UK Dates In May, Shows In London And Manchester. Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition Of 'Give Up' Including Two Unreleased Songs Released 8th April 2012 On Sub Pop.

Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello a/k/a The Postal Service have added two UK dates to a worldwide jaunt which now appears to be a full-on reunion tour. With US dates confirmed around their Coachella appearances on 13th and 20th April, the two UK shows plus a night in Paris lead up to their performance at Barcelona's Primavera Sound 2013 festival. The band will then make their long awaited return to New York when they'll headline Brooklyn's Barclay Center in June.

Tickets for the newly announced dates are on sale now. Additional dates on this first Postal Service tour in a decade will be announced as they are confirmed.

Gibbard and Tamborello will be reuniting on the road with a band fleshed out by Jenny Lewis (Jenny & Johnny, Rilo Kiley) and Laura Burhenn (Mynabirds, Bright Eyes) to celebrate the 10th anniversary and deluxe edition reissue of The Postal Service's universally acclaimed release, 'Give Up'. The 'Give Up Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition' is out 8th April on Sub Pop includes the original 10-track album along with 15 bonus tracks. It also includes the brand new songs 'Turn Around' and 'A Tattered Line of String', a previously unreleased live recording, and every other official recording the band has ever released, as well as cover versions of Postal Service classics by The Shins and Iron & Wine.

Both the tour and 'Give Up Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition' find Lewis reuniting with The Postal Service: she appeared on the original album and played with the band on its handful of 2003 tour dates. Lewis also sings on the two new songs on the 'Give Up Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition'

Additional dates on this first Postal Service tour in a decade will be announced as they are confirmed.

'Give Up' was certified platinum last year just shy of 10 years from its original 9th Feb 2003 release. Led by the single 'Such Great Heights', the landmark album is the second-biggest selling album in Sub Pop's nearly 25-year history after Nirvana's Bleach.
