Give Up (Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition) out April 9 on Sub Pop
“A Tattered Line of String” New Single Available for Purchase and with Pre-Order
With half a dozen shows and counting already sold out–including New York’s Barclays Center Arena where a second date has been added by popular demand–The Postal Service has announced nearly 20 more additional headline engagements to the tour commemorating the April 9 release of its Give Up (Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition) on Sub Pop.
The newly announced additions to The Postal Service’s first headline tour in decade include stops at more of North America’s premiere arenas, amphitheaters and more, including Red Rocks in Morrison CO, Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia MD, the Greek Theater in Berkeley CA, and many more.
In addition to the already sold out return to New York June 14 at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, all tickets for The Postal Service’s UK headline dates are now gone: May 19 and 20 at London’s Brixton Academy are both sold out immediately, while May 18 at Manchester’s Academy 2 has been bumped up to the larger Academy and sold out again. The band’s shows at the Mondavi Center in Davis CA on April 10 and the Madonna Expo Center in San Luis Obispo CA on April 12, also sold out within minutes, and April 19 at Las Vegas’ Chelsea Ballroom at the Cosmopolitan is now sold out as well.
Pre-sale tickets for the new dates will be available directly from The Postal Service at http://bit.ly/PstlSrvc beginning Wednesday, February 20 at 10am local venue time for all–except for June 11 at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto (pre-sale starts February 25), Columbia MD (pre-sale starts March 6) and Vancouver (pre-sale starts April 3). By purchasing tickets through this pre-sale fans will gain early access to tickets and save money on ticketing fees.
The Postal Service 10th anniversary tour will reunite Postal Service principals Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello with Jenny Lewis (Jenny & Johnny, Rilo Kiley), who appeared on the original album and played with the band on its 2003 dates. Lewis also sings on the two new songs on Give Up (Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition). Laura Burhenn (Mynabirds, Bright Eyes) rounds out the 2013 touring lineup.
The Postal Service and Sub Pop Records’ pre-order for Give Up (Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition) is live now, with configurations including a limited 3-LP edition on red, clear and white vinyl available through subpop.com and postalservicemusic.net. All pre-orders will immediately receive a download of the previously unreleased single “A Tattered Line of String.”
Give Up was certified platinum last year just shy of 10 years from its original February 9, 2003 release. Led by the single “Such Great Heights,” the landmark album is, after Nirvana’s Bleach, the second-biggest selling album in Sub Pop’s nearly 25-year history.
