Will someone please call a surgeon? Iconic one-off millennial angst soundtrackers The Postal Service are coming back.

Billboard reports that the duo, comprised of Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie and Jimmy Tamborello of electro outfit Dntel, who released their sole indie pop LP Give Up as The Postal Service in 2003, are reuniting this year to commemorate the influential album’s tenth anniversary. A deluxe re-release of the album is in the works, as well as an appearance at Coachella, although whether the plan will include newly recorded music remains unclear. As Billboard notes, Gibbard said just a few months ago, “There are no plans to make a second [Postal Service] record… I can’t say that enough,” which doesn’t bode well. Still, who else is definitely heading to Indio this year?
