The art-punk pioneers Devo have today announced that they will be releasing a brand new book set which looks to chronicle the band’s influences, inspirations and in turn the huge amount of influence and inspiration their output has given.
The two book set, featuring ‘The Brand’ and ‘Unmasked’, will use archival art, prints, photography and notes to re-tell the story of the band, put together by co-founders Gerald V. Casale and Mark Mothersbaugh.
With ‘Brand’ we see a closer look at the band’s relationship with the mdeia and in turn their fans, while ‘Unmasked’ takes a in-depth look at the band on a more personal level, as their individual narratives meander through the group.
The set is available in the Classic version, which features both books in a mammoth 320-page edition. The book will also be available in the limited run Signature edition, which contains the two separate volumes completed by a hand-crafted, rubberized clamshell box signed by the band, and a vintage Devo artwork co-created by Casale and Mothersbaugh.
