Band will play at Vancouver

American visionaries Devo will perform at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver later this year.

Their performance, which will be broadcast live, comes ahead of the release of their first studio album in almost twenty years.

From February 13 - 27, a number of bands will perform in Vancouver for the games, including Feist, Usher and The Fray.

Bassist Jerry Casale said: "We are really excited to have the opportunity to let everyone know that De-evolution is real!"

Meanwhile, everyone's favourite fictional Devo character Booji Boy said: “Devo were collectively ready to relax in their matching LAZYBOY loungers, sipping drinks by the 19th hole, but the rate things have been falling apart, and the velocity of de-evolution these days left us with no choice but to get back out there and inform people that now, more than ever before, it is time to disobey the mob and think for ourselves! To remind people that biology is destiny, and de-evolution is real!

"We are back with inspirational tomes of truth and neuro-simpatico sonic nuggets for the entire world, not just our species! "
