Ben Gibbard was one of many musicians to audition for The Postal Service - watch some of the other musicians who tried out - like Tom DeLonge. And Nate Mendel. And a bunch others that I don't want to give away.

We Are The Wild Things is an upstart pop/rock group hailing from Canada. The band's sound falls right into the mix of early The Maine, Artist Vs.

The group's new EP, Amour, comes out March 12th but you can stream "Quit Running Away" on the band's AP.net profile or in the replies.

Honestly, I think everything is possible, but I do not think itís something that is totally likely in the near future. It comes up every once in while, with people asking us if we plan to return, or offers come in reunite, but it never seems to be the right time. Everyone has other stuff going on, but I think that it is something that could eventually happen. Iím not sure how much older we could get and still do it though [laughs]. An older version of Blood Brothers? Iím not sure that would be any good. Anything is possible though.
A variety of events has hinted strongly at Fall Out Boy doing more touring in Europe this coming April.
