Apparently the Postal Service's two weekends at Coachella has brought them out of their 10-year-long hiding place, as the band has just announced a 12-stop headlining tour across the West Coast and the UK.
Tucson fans won't have to go far out of their way to catch the Postal Service during this tour cycle. A Phoenix stop is scheduled for April 18 at the Comerica Theatre.
The tour's announcement comes just a few weeks after the band announced a 10-year anniversary edition of Give Up, the duo's one and only record to date, which just went platinum last year. The re-release includes the album's original tracks, plus a handful of new songs, b-sides and covers of songs by other bands.
The tour itself will consist of Postal Service founding members Benjamin Gibbard (Death Cab for Cutie) and Jimmy Tomborello (Dntel and Headset), along with Rilo Kiley's Jenny Lewis and Bright Eyes' Laura Burhenn, who both performed on the original record.
Tickets for the upcoming Phoenix show can be picked up either at the band's website, or at the Comerica's website. The show is general admission only, and currently sits at $50 a ticket. The tickets are up for grabs right now for anyone with a login into the band's website, though the website does not indicate when the presale will end and open ticketing to the public. Buyers have a number of options with tickets, including buying them in a CD or vinyl album bundle.
