The Postal Service have played their "very last" gig according to frontman Ben Gibbard.


The duo, consisting of Benjamin Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello, reformed earlier this year to celebrate 10 years of their one and only album 'Give Up', first released in 2003. However, any hopes the group may continue or work on a new album were dashed over the weekend when Gibbard confirmed that their performances at Lollapalooza would be their last. "Hey Chicago, these @PostalService shows at Lollapalooza and Metro will be our very last. Please come celebrate with us!" he tweeted.

'Give Up' was the band's only album. A collaborative effort between Benjamin Gibbard of Death Cab For Cutie and Jimmy Tamborello of DNTEL, the pair barely toured their album upon its release but have seen the songs develop a cult status since they called time on the project.



The band performed at Coachella festival in California earlier this year and also played live in the UK, headlining Brixton Academy in May.
