DEVO’s first album in 20 years “Something for Everybody” dropped today. I just bought the deluxe edition :^). Checkout the live listening party for 20 cats http://www.ustream.tv/devo?loc=interstitialskip
One of my favorite things about DEVO is how they blend social commentary into their art – and of course their heave use of synths! I’ve really been enjoying their current angle which is commentary on consumerism, big corporations, and mega marketing. I think it’s awesome that they went back to Warner Bros. for this release and got them in on the satire.
Here is a brand new video and Episode 1 of of a 5 episode tongue-in-cheek we reality series they just kicked off today – DEVO Makes Something For Everybody – Episode 1. They’ll post new episodes on upcoming Tuesdays.
They’ll also be appearing on the Colbert Report on June 16th.
Lastly, DEVO is starting a big tour to spread the word about devolution.
