Reunited duo brings Rilo Kiley leader on its first tour in a decade

The Postal Service reunion is kicking into high gear, as the indie pop duo, comprised of Ben Gibbard and Jimmy Tamborello, has announced its first proper tour in nearly a decade.

Their trek begins Apr. 9 at the Grand Sierra Theatre in Reno and ends at Brooklyn's Barclays Center on June 14, with appearances at Coachella and Primavera Soundwave festival in between. Joining them on tour are indie rockers Jenny Lewis (Rilo Kiley) and Laura Burhenn (Bright Eyes); Lewis provided backing vocals and keyboard on the Postal Service's only album, 2003's "Give Up."

Meanwhile, the "Give Up Deluxe 10th Anniversary Edition," out Apr. 9 on Sub Pop, will include all of "Give Up's" original tracks as well as a whopping 15 bonus tracks, which are made up of two new songs (titled "A Tattered Line of String" and "Turn Around"), an unreleased live recording, five previously released remixes, covers of Postal Service songs by Iron & Wine and the Shins, and more. Lewis also appears on the two new Postal Service songs.

Only 12 dates have been confirmed for the tour so far, but future dates are expected to be announced soon.
