Billboard Confirms that yes, The Postal Service is Back

For what exactly, remains somewhat in flux. Billboard reports that the band’s (made up of Ben Gibbard, Death Cab for Cutie, and Jimmy Tamborello) “Give Up” will be re-released in a deluxe edition. “Give Up” is the group’s one and only album, released in 2003, but has been forever seared in my mind and the minds of others as “the album that got them through high school/college/my early twenties”.

Currently the band’s website only features the below image, so for now we can only rely on what Billboard confirms and everyone’s speculations, like a set at Coachella and several more tour dates.
