Whenever a popular band has a lesser known side project, alias, or collaboration, there is something about it that makes us music fans want more of it.
Even though they have only released one album Give Up back in 2003...the indie "cult classic" triumvirate The Postal Service, consisting of Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie, Jimmy Tamborello, and Jenny Lewis has been a band that people want to reunite.
Only reuniting for a 10th anniversary tour for that album in 2013, fans have clamored for another chance....bad news though, it's very unlikely. Speaking with NME Gibbard reiterated his love for his bandmates Jimmy and Jenny, but the "dream of doing any more (Postal Service) music kind of died when we attempted to make the second record in 2004/2005."
When Death Cab took off and became the band they have now become, with three straight beloved albums in that early 2000's timeframe of Transatlanticism, Plans, and Narrow Stairs...Postal Service went on the back burner.
While we as fans are asking for it, it seems as the members gave it a shot to keep it going, and are content with leaving that era in the past, as they have moved on to new endeavors.
Here's a performance of The District Sleeps Alone Tonight from that 2013 reunion tour to let you know what the hype is about...
