    Dude from Death Cab was on Baseball Today and said that the Postal Service aren't really a band and have no plans to record in the future.

    "Never say never" were his words though.

    The Postal Service version was on the trailer, though. Don't ask me why I remember that of all things.

    Considering their tone when asked if their will be new Postal Service and the fact they don't even consider it a an actual band, I'd say there's almost no chance for Coachella 2013.
    I highly doubt they will just show up and play the favorites off of Give Up

    Why not? DFA1979 did that exact same thing. I don't think him saying it's not an actual band necessarily rules them out either. Hell, I don't really consider them a band, it's more of a project.

    Yeah, he sounded surprised that someone even brought up the Postal Service. I doubt he's thought about it for quite some time (that's how it sounded, anyway).

    EDIT* I guess anything is possible though.

    I wouldn't say it's the exact same thing. They played material from their one single LP and two EPs, but it's not much better than playing from one single LP so I get your point. I think the context of how the "bands" or whatever you call them came to being and existed is quite different and is what makes them different. DFA1979 was a band that existed for half a decade and the two members put virtually all their creative energy into it as opposed to a side project collaboration from existing established artists. I'm not saying one is better than the other or DFA cared about their music more, but from Gibbard's comments I would definitely say the Postal Service always has a decent chance for a reunion but I'm doubting it will be without any new material, it doesn't seem like he wants to bring the project back for nostalgia sake.
    That''s my own opinion and anybody interested in the subject should just read the actual interview with Gibbard and judge for themselves.

    Well, with his solo record coming out soon and pending any new Death Cab music, I say that it is possible; just not quite yet ready to happen.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there is a Ben Gibbard solo set at Coachella next year. I imagine he will put a Postal Service song or two into his solo set.

    They've played twice here, so I'm sure they've played elsewhere too.

    I saw a solo Ben Gibbard show at the HMML this September, kind of unplanned. Not a huge Ben Gibbard fan outside of Postal Service. He did 3 or 4 Postal Service songs on acoustic guitar. I think he still holds that body of work in high regard, he closed with Brand New Colony. According to Setlist he's even done This Is The Dream of Evan and Chan recently (a Dntel song he sang on prior to the Give Up record).
