The Postal Service meets the United States Postal Service. Again.
Ben Gibbard kicked off the Democratic National Convention's #TeamJoeSings series today (Aug. 19) in support of Democratic nominee Joe Biden. He started his set with Death Cab for Cutie's "Northern Lights," but he shined a light on one of his biggest musical influences that's currently undergoing a national crisis ahead of the presidential election: the USPS.
"It's an honor to be here and support Vice President Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. And I think more than any election in my lifetime, this one is of paramount importance," the 44-year-old frontman stated while tuning his guitar for the next timely tune. "And one of the many institutions outside of democracy that's very core, that's under fire is that of the United States Postal Service."
