Announcing the co-headline acts for 2024, All Points East by Uber One is thrilled to bring The Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie to Victoria Park on Sunday, August 25. This marks The Postal Service’s first London appearance in over 10 years, making it a momentous occasion for music fans worldwide. Stay tuned for more acts to be revealed, as All Points East promises an unforgettable celebration of two iconic groups that shaped an era.
The Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie have teamed up for an unprecedented 20th anniversary co-headline tour, celebrating Give Up and Transatlanticism. Returning to London, the show will feature Benjamin Gibbard performing with both bands. The Postal Service lineup includes Gibbard, Jimmy Tamborello, and Jenny Lewis, while Death Cab for Cutie consists of Gibbard, Nick Harmer, Dave Depper, Zac Rae, and Jason McGerr. This extraordinary event showcases both groups performing their full 2003 albums.
Death Cab for Cutie has left a lasting impact on the indie pop scene and played a defining role in shaping the emo genre during the early 2000s. Gibbard’s heartfelt and introspective lyrics have influenced a generation, earning him numerous GRAMMY and MTV nominations. His influence continues to resonate with indie fans and bands alike.
The group has released an impressive 10 studio albums and possesses an incredible range. Their most recent release, Asphalt Meadows, received critical acclaim last year, with SPIN Magazine hailing it as “Their best album in years.” Gibbard continues to tap into their creative sensitivity present in earlier albums, which is evident in this latest record.
After a decade-long absence, The Postal Service is set to make their highly anticipated return to London. This marks the first time they will perform in the city since their last anniversary tour ten years ago. The group comprises singer Ben Gibbard, producer Jimmy Tamborello of Dntel, and backing singer Jenny Lewis. Their album Give Up reached platinum status in 2003 and has since gained a dedicated following, becoming a cult favorite.
Tamborello and Gibbard initially teamed up in 2001 for Tamborello’s Dntel project. They continued their collaboration remotely, earning their name from the exchange of mail. Tamborello provided instrumental tracks while Gibbard contributed guitars, vocals, and lyrics. The outcome was compiled into the duo’s sole album, Give Up, released under the Sub Pop label.
The project served as a foundation for the lasting success of both musicians, and its legacy continues to thrive even after 20 years. It is a privilege to have both groups come together for this exceptional and exclusive performance at Uber One presents All Points East next summer.
Uber One presents All Points East, featuring headliners Loyle Carner (17 August) and LCD Soundsystem (23 August), will now also include performances by The Postal Service and Death Cab for Cutie. Stay tuned for additional lineup announcements.
