Devo To Whip Out New Album

Devo is wrapping up the finishing touches on its first new studio album in almost 20 years.

The album is set for release this fall with a yet-to-be announced title. The art-rock/ post-punk band’s most recent studio album is 1990’s Smooth Noodle Maps. In 2007 Devo released the single “Watch Us Work It,” its first new song in 18 years.
