They reunited for a tour in 2013 to mark the record’s 10th anniversary, playing their “very last” show at Chicago’s Metro in August of that year. A documentary detailing their live comeback, titled Everything Will Change, came out in 2014.
Tonight (October 6), The Postal Service surprised fans by uploading a black-and-white video soundtracked by a snippet of new music. The clip confirms that a song or project called ‘Your Meeting Will Begin’ will be arriving tomorrow (October 7).
“And just like that I love 2020 now,” one fan commented. Another said: “Could it be?”
Jenny Lewis, who provided backing vocals for the group, also posted the video on her official Twitter account. She too captioned the clip: “10.7.20”.
“One of the many institutions – outside from democracy at its very core – that is under fire is that of the United States Postal Service,” Gibbard explained.
“We made a record using the United States Postal Service and therefore we called ourselves The Postal Service… So I’m going to play a song by the Postal Service and dedicate it to the Postal Service.”
