The Postal Service Extend North American Tour, Add Toronto and Vancouver Dates
The itinerary is nothing to scoff at, but there is a noticeable lack of Canadian shows. They haven't ignored us completely, however, as they'll hit Toronto's Air Canada Centre on June 11 and Vancouver's Rogers Arena on July 16. The whole tour schedule is available below.
The group also have a mini-documentary called 10 Years of the Postal Service on the way courtesy of indie rock comedy guru Tom Scharpling.
Speaking with MTV Hive, Scharpling explained that there are actually two documentary components with the following statement:
One is a mini-documentary, getting Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello to tell the story of how this weird band came together and how they were mailing each other CD-R's back and forth. It's a straight mini-doc thing that should be out shortly. The other is a funny video that takes place in 2002, that shows Jimmy auditioning potential lead singers for Postal Service. We got an amazing group of people to come through.
While we await that footage, you can check out the band's recently leaked song "A Tattered Line of String" at the bottom of the page.
