Ten years after their first album, The Postal Service look set to reform and release a new album in 2013. An image (see above) posted on the band's website says simply the band's name and the year, suggesting that the band are set to end their long-standing hiatus.
Fronted by Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard, along with producer Jimmy Tamborello, The Postal Service were rumoured to be working on a new album in 2007 but the note posted on the band's website today has reignited speculation that 2013 could be the year for The Postal Service's long-awaited return. Stay tuned on this one, expect more developments soon.
Gibbard's day job, Death Cab, nixed some plans for an earlier Postal Service record but now that the touring cycle for their 2011 album Codes and Keys is well and truly over, it could be time to refocus efforts on The Postal Service once more.
