The Postal Service Biography

Los Angeles, California USA-based Electro-Pop project started in late 2001 by Jimmy Tamborello and Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie. They initially planned only an EP, Tamborello started sending electronic pieces on CD-Rs, via the U.S. postal service to Gibbard who added guitar, drums, keyboards and vocals.

When the pair decided to release a full-length disc continued to collaborate via mail. Preceded by the single, "Such Great Heights", their debut album, entitled "Give Up", was released in February 2003 and hit #3 on the Top Independent Albums chart. But the guys didn't realize that they had made something special since the album was certified platinum by the RIAA.

To celebrate the 10 year anniversary, Sub Pop reissued The Postal Service's sole album in the spring of 2013, the double-CD set contains 15 bonus tracks, including two brand new songs, one of which, "A Tattered Line Of String", broke into The Alternative Songs chart.
