Following the success of their 2022 "Asphalt Meadows Tour," Death Cab for Cutie will be on the road once again this 2023 for a North American trek. This time, the Ben Gibbard-led band will be co-headlining a series of shows with The Postal Service, a band he also co-founded in the early 2000s. This co-headlining tour is a unique one, as this will feature two bands fronted by the same lead vocalist. What's more remarkable is that both bands will be performing all the songs from their respective 2003 albums, which will be celebrating their 20th anniversary this 2023.
The Postal Service's platinum-certified "Give Up," released on February 2003, was a collaboration between Ben Gibbard and musician Jimmy Tamborello. The 10-track album catapulted the band into stardom as their singles "Such Great Heights," "We Will Become Silhouettes," and "The District Sleeps Alone Tonight" dominated the charts and the radio waves. Released under Sub Pop Records, "Give Up" is the label's second highest-selling album, second only to Nirvana's "Bleach." Joined by their third member Jenny Lewis, the album was a massive hit in the early 2000s and is considered "one of the touchstones of a new generation of indie music." The tour will also mark the band's comeback to live stage performance after 2013's 10th-anniversary reunion tour for "Give Up."
Death Cab for Cutie's "Transatlanticism," on the other hand, was released on October 2003. It was the fourth studio album of the indie-rock band that has charted on the Billboard Top 100 and was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America. Gibbard regrouped his old band Death Cab for Cutie, the year before to create this concept album. Transatlanticism enabled the band to gain popularity outside the genre's fanbase, making it one of the biggest cultural forces in the indie-rock music scene. Currently, Nick Harmer, Jason McGerr, Dave Depper, and Zac Rae complete the band.
This year, fans are in for a treat from these two bands as they collaborate for an exciting headlining tour celebrating the 20th anniversary of "Give Up" and "Transatlanticism." Catch them on October 3 at the Arizona Financial Theatre, and prepare to see Ben Gibbard pull double duty throughout the show.
"I know for a fact I will never have a year again like 2003. The Postal Service record came out, 'Transatlanticism' came out," Gibbard says. "These two records will be on my tombstone, and I'm totally fine with that. I've never had a more creatively inspired year," he added with excitement.
