The band was formed in 2001 by Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello, after the two provided vocals for the band "Dntel" for the song (This is) The Dream of Evan and Chan. The Postal Service's third member, Jenny Lewis was handpicked by Tamborello, as they both lived in the same apartment complex. Lewis initially became a temporary member, providing her vocal talents on a few tracks, before finally becoming a permanent member. The trio was recognized instantly due to the fact that the Dntel song was well received by the audiences and was remixed by many artists such as "The Flaming Lips", "Lali Puna", "Superpitcher", "Barbara Morgenstern" and "Safety Scissors".
The particular name of the band that was chosen was kept after the way the artists wrote songs. The songwriting process was initiated when Tamborello composed and recorded instrumentals and sent them to Gibbard via Digital Audio Tapes. Gibbard then edited the songs, adding vocals to the instrumentals and sent them by mail through the Postal Service of the United States. After two years of writing, singing, recording and editing, the trio that made The Postal Service, came forward with their debut release.
The album was named Give Up which comprised of guest vocals provided by Rilo Kiley, Jen Wood and temporary band vocalist at that time, Jenny Lewis. Produced by Chris Walla and Dntel and released via the Sub Pop Record Company, this album was among the most successful releases, ever since the time of Nirvana's debut record "Bleach". Three songs from this album made it big in the music industry. The first single "Such Great Heights" was used as a theme song for ABC television series Grey's Anatomy. It was also used by M&M's for a commercial in 2005, apart from being used in advertisements of Kaiser Permanente and UPS. The second single "We Will Become Silhouettes" was recorded by The Shins and this cover was heard on the soundtrack of the feature film Funny People. The third single, "The District Sleeps along Tonight" was featured on the soundtrack of the 2004 film release "D.E.B.S.".
This album was also appreciated by music critics such as Pitchfork that stated this release as "being collaboration between Tamborello's intricate dense production and Gibbard's intense voice that has been able to make Give Up an incredibly strong release that consists of ample moving moments". Village Voice has described the record as "having subtle yet exciting electro arrangements that have been perfectly matched with the vocal skill set of Gibbard making this release incredibly addictive".
After several years of hiatus, it was in the beginning of 2013 that the official website of the Postal Service updated their blog stating the initiation of an extended world tour celebrating the tenth anniversary of Give Up. They are scheduled to tour throughout places such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, Sasquatch! Music Festival, the Primavera Sound Festival and Free Press Summer Festival. After this news update, The Postal Service released a smashing single after a ten year break. This track was called A Tattered Line of String which featured their third member, Jenny Lewis as well. Soon after this track, the trio was seen coming forth with another addition which was brought forward via "107.7 the End" and was named Turn Around.
Audiences now have a chance to listen to these new tracks as well as several of their most popular releases from Give Up at the forthcoming concerts that will be held throughout April and May. Get The Postal Service tickets today to mark your presence.
