Cult electro rockers The Postal Service have split for good following their show at the Lollapalooza music festival over the weekend.

The band reunited earlier this year following an extended hiatus for a tour marking the 10th anniversary of their 2003 album “Give Up,” and released two new singles, but fans hoping for more new material have been dealt a devastating blow.

Frontman Ben Gibbard took to his Twitter.com page shortly before the band’s set at Lollapalooza in Chicago, Illinois on Saturday to announce the group’s split.

The musician, who also fronts Death Cab for Cutie, declared the band’s set at Lollapalooza and a late night “aftershow” at Chicago’s Metro Theatre on Sunday (04Aug13) would be The Postal Service’s final gigs, writing, “Hey Chicago, these Postal Service shows at Lollapalooza and Metro will be our very last. Please come celebrate with us!”

The band also performed at the Coachella festival in California earlier this year.
