'Something For Everybody', Devo's first new studio album in 20 yearsPosted on 18/05/10
More than three decades after the release of their visionary debut, "Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo" and 20 years after their last album, 1990's "Smooth Noodle Maps", Devo are set to release a new studio album. The new album, entitled "Something For Everybody" has a UK release date set for Monday June 14th, followed by a North American release on Tuesday 15th June. This is what Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh has to say about the release: "Thirty years ago, people said that we were cynical, that we had a bad attitude, but now, when you ask people if de-evolution is real, they understand that there was something to what we were saying. It's not the kind of thing you want to see proven right, but it does make it easier to talk about."
The long rumored album (which was recently launched with a memorable performance in Vancouver at the Winter Olympics) features the band's classic line-up - Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh, Gerald and Bob Casale joined by drummer Josh Freese (Nine Inch Nails, Guns n' Roses). Produced by Greg Kurstin (The Bird & The Bee), the album also includes contributions from John Hill and Santi White (better known as rising hip-hop star Santigold), John King of the Dust Brothers, and the Teddybears.
