Something For Everybody to be released in June

Subversive American rockers Devo will release their first studio album in 20 years next month.

Something For Everybody is their first release since 1990's Smooth Noodle Maps and will be released on June 14 in the UK and June 15 in America.

Devo's Mark Mothersbaugh said: "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."

His band mate Gerald Casale added: "The world is in sync with Devo. We’re not the guys who freak people out and scare them - we’re like the house band on the Titanic, entertaining everybody as we go down."
