As Death Cab For Cutie celebrate the release of their second major-label LP, Narrow Stairs, this week, frontman Ben Gibbard cautions fans of his other project, Postal Service, not to hold their breath for a new album from the glitchy electro-pop duo anytime soon.

"The second Postal Service album is threatening to become the Chinese Democracy of indie rock," Gibbard tells Rolling Stone. "It will come out eventually, or maybe it won't."
