Revamped Postal Service to tour in support of "Give Up"; Playing Philadelphia July 17th

Nearly ten years after releasing The Postal Service's only album, 2003's "Give Up," the band is back, complete with a 10th Anniversary edition of the album, new members, and a world tour. The tour includes shows at Coachella and Lollapalooza Music Festivals, and Brooklyn's brand new Barclays Center, among other stops. The founding duo of Ben Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie) and Jimmy Tamborello (Dntel, Headset) has expanded to include Laura Burhenn (Mynabirds) and vocalist Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley), who contributed vocals and back-up instrumentation on many of the tracks featured on "Give Up."

The Postal Service formed as a collaboration between lead singer Ben Gibbard, and instrumentalist Jimmy Tamborello on the track "(This Is) The Dream of Evan and Chan" by Tamborello's band, Dntel. The team would send recordings and instrumentals through the U.S Postal Service, thus naming the project after the real mail-carrying service.

The album has sold 1.07 million copies since its release (receiving a platinum certification), proving to be Sub Pop Records' best-selling album since Nirvana’s "Bleach." Released in February of 2013, the 10th Anniversary edition features fifteen previously-unreleased bonus tracks, including two new songs, covers, and remixes of tracks on the album.

The group has played high-profile “reunion shows” at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the Barclays Center and the Sasquatch! Music Festival, delighting fans who have waited eagerly to hear the band’s recognizable brand of electronic pop-rock.

The tour makes a stop in Philadelphia at the Mann Center Monday, July 17th with support from Ra Ra Riot. The doors open at 6:00 PM, and tickets are $29.50-$44.50.
