The Postal Service story

When I heard the the Postal Service was reuniting and going on tour I was skeptical. Eventhough I have seen Ben Gibbard Perform 4 times of the course of the last 5 years, this nostalgic attempt of continuing a side project with such a cult following seemed almost uncharacteristic of the harsh inner critic of Ben Gibbard. HE has been so insistant over the years that Postal Service will not make another record, they will not tour and the band is dead. But with the news of a 10 year anniversary reissue, Jenny Lewis helping out with vocals and joining her friends on a almost sold out arena tour. You begin to realize that a Postal Service return to the road just feels right

For all of you that have never heard of Postal Service, here is a great video NPR did about their begining and what has brought them back for this epic tour
