According to Consequence of Soumd, that long-awaited reunion of Ben Gibbard and DNTEL appears to really be in the works. The Postal Serivce, who’s first and only album Give Up turns 10 next month, have updated their official website, which now shows only the image you see above. Rumor has it, via Brooklyn Vegan, that the band will be playing this year’s Coachella festival. The new website would seem to indicate that a larger reunion is possible, though Gibbard recently told Spinner that people “shouldn’t hold their breath” for a new album. Of course, no tour or new music is guaranteed yet, as details have not been announced.
