Warner Bros. to Release Devo Re-Masters

What's old is new when it comes to Devo. Warner Bros. is opening up the vaults and issuing re-mastered vinyl and expanded CD editions of the band's second album, 1979's Duty Now for the Future and 1981's New Traditionalists. Oh how we love seeing classic albums get the re-release treatment. Duty Now… will be released on vinyl on Record Store Day, which is April 17, while New Traditionalists hits shelves on May 11.
Both albums have been re-mastered from the original analog recordings and come with a plethora of bonus tracks. Both titles will be released on CD as well as color vinyl album packages and both will include bonus tracks.
Devo are set to perform live at Coachella on April 17, which is also Record Store Day. We are starting to think Devo are having a love affair with Record Store Day, as the band will host a rare signing session in the Record Store Day Tent, powered by Zia Records, where fans can meet Devo and have purchases autographed by the band. Devo and Record Store Day heart each other, no doubt.
And what about you? Will you be getting your ass out to a record store on Record Store Day to support mom and pop's that still sell recorded music? You should.
