Get ready to feel old: The Postal Service is reuniting for their 10 year anniversary
Remember 2003? Bush was president, we’d just invaded Iraq, maybe for good reason some of us still thought, reality TV was still “a thing,” and the haircuts—remember the haircuts? Sure you do:
It was a long time ago. It was also the year The Postal Service released “Give Up,” a record so beloved it borderline ruined lives in the few years following when it became apparent that Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello had no plans to keep the band going. Maybe it’s just because “Give Up” was such a sensation, the kind of thing that kept going for years, that The Postal Service doesn’t really seem like that distant a memory.
But today it comes to our attention that we are all getting extremely old and basically at death’s door as the band announces a reunion for their 10 year anniversary.
There are no specifics yet beyond a website reading simply “The Postal Service 2013,” but Stereogum observes that the site launch is suspiciously close to the lineup announcement for this year’s Coachella.
Stay tuned for more news on your rapidly decaying life, which is flying by faster than you’re prepared to handle.
