The Postal Service have been touring this year in celebration of the tenth year anniversary of their hit album, Give Up. During this tour, they’ve also released several songs including their first new song in a long time, “A Tattered Line of String.” Even though they had released the audio for the track sometime ago, yesterday they released the official video for it which can be seen below.
“A Tattered Line of String” is featured on the deluxe reissue of Give Up which was released earlier this year.
Last month, the Postal Service announced that they would be heading on their first headlining tour in ten years in honor of the tenth year anniversary of their album, Give Up. The reported tour dates fueled fans who were upset that there were only a few tour dates confirmed. After receiving several angry tweets from fans, frontman Ben Gibbard, made a mass tweet to all fans saying that more tour dates were coming; the fans just needed to wait for the confirmations. Now, those dates have surfaced which means that their spring tour will now be extending into the summer months as well.

When The Postal Service announced that they would be reuniting for a 10th anniversary tour, fans of the indie group were up in arms with how excited they were. This year will mark the 10th anniversary of their debut, and only album, Give Up.Give Up will be re-released on April 9 and would feature two new, never-before- heard tracks, including “A Tattered Line of String” which made its debut to the hands of many eager fans.
