DEVO Sign All-Inclusive Deal with WB, Play Albums Live

devo

Named after their own concept of de-evolution, DEVO, quite conscious of their antics, have rarely  de-volved. Har. At the forefront of the proto-punk and New Wave movments, the band is often experimenting with new ways to engage its audience (see Laser Disc videos), while pushing their crafted blend of satirical, scientific-art punk to the next level. This time the band, lead by Rugrats score composer and Wes Anderson BFF Mark Mothersbaugh, signed an all-inclusive deal with long time label Warner Bros., which covers "all aspects of the band's career, including recorded music, touring, merchandising, web services, promotion, ecommerce, sponsorships, licensing, and endorsements." The 360-deal, similar to Live Nation's deals with U2, Jay-Z and Nickelback, comes as Warner's is set to reissue DEVO's first six albums in remastered form. In accordance, and in an attempt to sell a few copies of the reissues of Q: Are We Not Men? A: We Are Devo! and Freedom of Choice, the band will play said albums on a short tour of North America, which includes the band's first show in Toronto in 25 years. (note: DEVO are theoretically opposed to hockey teams named after leaves.) The tour runs from Tuesday November 3rd to November 24th, meaning there is no excuse not to buy your grandmother one of these for Christmas.
