Devo will jump in head first into the reunion album/tour circuit with the news that they'll do the standard reunion tour/album reissue as a precursor to a new album, which they promise will live up to the band's groundbreaking reputation.
Quotes from their press release:
"DEVO have signed a unique, ground-breaking worldwide partnership with their original label home Warner Bros. Records that exhibits the band’s long-time commitment to innovation in all aspects of their career."
“Devo have been called everything from geniuses to deviants and have always been ahead of their time,” says Elyse Rogers, SVP of Touring and Artist Development at WBR. “They are brilliant multi-media innovators who express themselves through far more than just recorded music."
They'll release a deluxe CD and limited-edition colored vinyl versions of 1978’s Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! and 1980's Freedom of Choice.
There's also plans for a new album to be released sometime in the future, after releasing the song "Don't Shoot Me (I'm a Man)" in April and playing "Fresh" and "What We Do," during live shows.
Devo will also launch a series of two-night shows in select markets (Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago, Washington D.C., New York City, and Toronto.) They'll perform Are We Not Men? in full on the first night, and Freedom of Choice in its entirety on the second night.
