Death Cab For Cutie and The Postal Service have announced the bands will embark on a co-headlining U.S. tour in 2023, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the former’s breakthrough fourth album, Transatlanticism, and the latter’s debut album, Give Up.
During their tour, the bands will play the two albums in full.
Ben Gibbard, co-founder of both groups, will front the bands. “I know for a fact I will never have a year again like 2003,” he said in a release announcing the 17-show tour that is set to kick off on September 8, 2023 in Portland, Maine.
The final concert of the tour will take place on October 13 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles
“The Postal Service record came out, Transatlanticism came out. These two records will be on my tombstone, and I’m totally fine with that. I’ve never had a more creatively inspired year,” said Gibbard.
The Postal Service lineup of Gibbard, keyboardist Jimmy Tamborello and singer/guitarist Jenny Lewis will perform alongside Death Cab, which features bassist Nick Harmer, guitarist/keyboardists Dave Depper and Zac Rae and drummer Jason McGerr.
For The Postal Service, the upcoming tour will mark their first live performances in more than a decade following a reunion tour in 2013.
