The Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie will celebrate the 20th anniversary of their respective albums, Give Up and Transatlanticism, by joining forces for a co-headlining North American tour in 2023. Each act, co-founded by Ben Gibbard, will perform their 2003 LPs in full at each stop.

Gibbard will keep busy over the duration of the trek performing with both bands. The Postal Service is comprised of Ben Gibbard, Jimmy Tamborello and Jenny Lewis, while Death Cab For Cutie features Ben, Nick Harmer, Dave Depper, Zac Rae and Jason McGerr.

“I know for a fact I will never have a year again like 2003,” stated Gibbard. “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.”
