For those of you into Devo, there is a new album due out on the 15th of June 2010

At the time of posting, you can hear the album streamed from an advertisement on the right hand side of the Colbert Report web site

There will also be a special video feed on the 15th where they will be streaming the music to the appreciative ears of 20 cats. Cats!

STOP PRESS, my pal quoted Mothersbaugh interview where he "apologised" for "Whip It", and said Devo are doing as many albums as possible in the next 5 years and getting them out there before the conventional music biz collapses for good (IE he doesn't think there will be mega corporation backed cd albums for much longer).

This refers to that interview / article; which is in the current issue of MOJO magazine:-

Devo, US new wave legends and bizarre head-gear enthusiasts, will release a new album later this year.

The as-yet-untitled record - their first since 1990's Smooth Noodle Maps - is scheduled to appear in the Autumn. It will contain the band's first new material since 2007's one-off single Watch Us Work It.

"De-evolution has finally arrived... and who better to guide us through the mess than Devo," reads their latest press release. "What the iconic new wave, art punk pioneers cautioned us about almost 30 years ago is no longer a humorous theory. It's pretty much fact - we now live in a devolved world that's getting wackier each and every day."

Founding member Gerald Casale adds: "The delivery method will be novel and cross-platform, taking advantage of the strange state of the economy and Devo's culturally relevant brand".

The five-piece are also making a return to the live circuit with shows in the UK and US. On May 6 they will perform their 1978 debut Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! in its entirety at London's Kentish Town Forum.

Devo will play:

Dallas SXSW, Palladium Ballroom (March 18)
Austin SXSW, Austin Music Hall (20)
London, Kentish Town Forum (May 6)
Somerset, Butlins Holiday Centre (8)
:p
