The Postal Service will make their Manchester debut in May, ten years after the release of the band’s only studio album, Give Up. The duo – Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard and producer Jimmy Tamborello of Dntel – will play their first headline shows in a decade this summer, with their Academy 2 stop-off the only UK date outside of London. The pair will be joined by Jenny Lewis (Jenny & Johnny, Rilo Kiley) and Laura Burhenn (Mynabirds, Bright Eyes) for this rare live outing. A deluxe version of Give Up will be released on 8 April.

Sat 18 May, Academy 2, Oxford Road, M13 9PR, Tel: 0161 275 2930,
