Art rockers pen new deal

A press release has reached Quietus HQ revealing that art rockers Devo have signed a deal with Warner Bros. Records.

It came accompanied by a rather odd message from the band themselves, which reads as follows:

"Hello. Over thirty years ago De-evolution was an idea that many people seriously questioned. The De-evolution band, otherwise known as DEVO, was met with skepticism as we tried to spread the word. We soldiered on and achieved success but never quite reached the mountaintop.

"However, today everyone seems to agree De-evolution is real. That’s great news! We are pleased to be part of that new reality as we announce our partnership with Warner Bros. Records. Together with them and an award-winning advertising agency, we will now fulfil the promise of a journey that has delivered us smack into the 21st century. The new union will enable us to fi nally put the “Inc” back into DEVO Inc.

"Look for DEVO to penetrate every nook and cranny of our technologically advanced pop culture in the coming year. With an arsenal of new songs, videos, fashions, apps, toys, games, live performances and more we will reach out to create something for everybody. DEVO will, together with our corporate partners, keep fighting the good fight to spread the Devolutionary message across the globe.

"We said it long ago and now we must repeat: 'Duty Now for the Future'. It’s now or never because Later Is Now!"
