All Points East is excited to announce the next co-headline acts for 2024: THE POSTAL SERVICE and DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE will be coming to Victoria Park on Sunday 25th August, plus many more acts to be announced!
This will be THE POSTAL SERVICE’s first appearance in London for over 10 years, so All Points East next summer will be an incredibly special celebration of two groups who defined an era and are held in the hearts of music fans across the world. To celebrate two decades of Give Up and Transatlanticism, THE POSTAL SERVICE and DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE have joined forces for an unprecedented 20th anniversary co-headline tour. Now heading back to London, this show will continue the huge anniversary celebrations. Each night, Benjamin Gibbard, the co-founder of both bands, will pull double duty performing with The Postal Service – comprised of Gibbard, Jimmy Tamborello and Jenny Lewis – as well as with Death Cab for Cutie (alongside Nick Harmer, Dave Depper, Zac Rae, and Jason McGerr). The extraordinary show will see both iconic groups performing their seminal 2003 albums in full.
DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE has made an enduring mark on the indie pop scene and helped to define the emo genre of the early 2000s. Gibbard’s emotive, introspective lyricism helped shape a generation, and with multiple GRAMMY and MTV nominations, he remains a consistent influence for many indie fans and bands. Having released a remarkable 10 studio albums, the group are a staggering force with breadth on their side. Their latest album Asphalt Meadows was released last year to critical acclaim, with SPIN Magazine calling it “Their best album in years.” Gibbard can still unlock that creative sensitivity that spread across many of their earlier albums, and this is proven in this latest record.
THE POSTAL SERVICE will be returning to London for the first time in a decade, 10 years on from their last anniversary tour. Consisting of singer Ben Gibbard, producer Jimmy Tamborello of Dntel, and backing singer Jenny Lewis, Give Up achieved platinum status in 2003, and has since garnered a cult following. Tamborello and Gibbard first worked together in 2001 on Tamborello’s Dntel project. From there, the duo continued to collaborate via mail -where they got their name – with Tamborello sending instrumental tracks and Gibbard adding guitars, vocals and lyrics. The results were packaged into the group’s only album, Give Upon the Sub Pop label.
The project was a cornerstone of both musicians’ enduring success, and it is for this reason that its legacy lives on 20 years later. It’s an honour to have both groups for this very unique and special performance at Uber One presents All Points East next summer.
