Spoof audition tape for The Postal Service features Foo Fighters, Blink-182, Guns N' Roses, Moby
A spoof audition tape to celebrate the 10th anniversary release of The Postal Service's one and only album, 'Give Up', has been put online.

The Funny Or Die video features Nate Mendel of Foo Fighters, Tom DeLonge of Blink-182, Duff McKagan – formerly of Guns N' Roses - and Moby, as well as Aimee Mann, Al Yankovic and more auditioning for the Subpop label and The Postal Service's Jimmy Tamborello.

The comedy clip finishes with the successful audition of Ben Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie, who went on to make up half of the cult band. Scroll down to watch the video.

The Postal Service are touring in support of the 10th anniversary re-issue of 'Give Up', which will include two previously unheard tracks and is set for release on April 8.

As well as the original 10-track album, the release will come with a second disc, featuring the additional tracks 'Turn Around' and 'A Tattered Line of String', which were recorded during the original album sessions, but never released. The second disc will also include live recordings, remixes and covers of the band's material by Iron & Wine and The Shins.

The Postal Service will play a pair of now sold out UK dates as part of their world reunion tour.

The duo will play Manchester Academy on May 18 and London's O2 Academy Brixton on May 20, after appearances at California's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April and before their performance at Barcelona's Primavera Sound festival.
