We enjoyed ourselves during the last two nights with Arcade Fire in Chicago. After sharing tour stories backstage, everyone got together to pose for this photo before showtime. A friendly bunch, those AF folks!

Attention Spuds, DEVOtees, and Beautiful Mutants!
As many of you know we recently played 10 shows during our Hardcore Devo Tour playing the seminal, experimental songs we created in basements and garages in Akron Ohio between 1974 and 1977. We have not played most of these songs that pre-dated any fame or record contracts since that time. In order to honor our fallen comrade, Bob “Bob 2” Casale we decided to follow through on his idea to resurrect the initial creative efforts that brought us all together as a band in time where we came of age and prevailed against all odds.
To document this once-in-a-lifetime Devo tour we brought in award-winning filmmaker, Keirda Bahruth to capture the mind-blowing event so that we might share it with all of you. “DEVO – Hardcore Live” (filmed June 28th at the Fox Theater in Oakland California) will be available on DVD, CD and Vinyl as well being made available on Blu-Ray with deluxe package choices chock full of devolved extras!

*It's with great regret that DEVO will miss the opportunity to perform with Arcade Fire in Mountain View, CA at Shoreline Amphitheater on July 30th. Frontman Mark Mothersbaugh is currently recovering from a Kayaking accident and is not stage worthy at this time. That's Devo! (Gerald V. Casale - 7/25/14)
