In June, Devo will return to the road for their first live performances in a year. The 11-city jaunt is dedicated to the memory of guitarist Bob Casale, who died in February from complications with heart failure, and a portion of the tour’s proceeds will go to his Casale’s family.
During each performance, Devo will revisit music from their early, experimental years between 1974-1977. Check out the rather incredible tour poster above and the full docket below.
In addition, the band has announced the release of three items for Record Store Day 2014 (April 19th): Live at Max’s Kansas City, a live recording taken from November 15th, 1997; a split 7-inch featuring The Flaming Lips’ cover of “Gates of Steel” alongside the original track; and a vinyl picture disc of Devo’s “return” show, Butch Devo and the Sundance Gig in January 1996.
