Fans have voted to make the next limited and numbered Run Out Groove title, Turn Around: B-Sides & More 1978-1984 available for pre-order now. Devo really needs no introduction. They are one of the most iconic bands in rock history and have been releasing recordings for over 40 years. The band name comes from the concept of de-evolution: the idea that instead of continuing to evolve, mankind has actually begun to regress as evidenced by the dysfunction and herd mentality in American society. We decided to pull together some unique B-Sides and remix singles from 7” and 12” records to create a brand new collection on one full length LP with new artwork. The album will be pressed on 180g multi-color swirl vinyl and come in a beautiful single pocket tip-on Stoughton jacket with a few additional goodies inside! Turn Around: B-Sides & More 1978-1984 will be available to pre-order until November 8th and then pressed and numbered to a limited quantity based on total orders. Follow our socials to get production updates.

Originally from Akron, Ohio and formed in 1973, the classic line-up consisted of two sets of brothers – the Mothersbaugh (Mark on vocals, keyboards and guitar and Bob on guitar and vocals) and the Casales (Gerald on bass, vocals and bass synth and Bob on guitar, keyboards and backing vocals) along with drummer Alan Myers. The band achieved a #14 Billboard chart hit in 1980 with the memorable and catchy, “Whip It,” which was featured heavily in the early days of MTV and pushed the band into mainstream popularity. Devo became known for their music and elaborate stage performances combining kitsch science fiction themes, surrealist humor and satirical social commentary. Their off kilter pop songs include unusual time signatures and synths that have proven very influential on subsequent new wave, industrial and alternative rock acts. Recommendations from David Bowie and Iggy Pop helped Devo land a recording contract with Warner Bros. in 1978.

Be sure to vote for Devo to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year!
