A deluxe edition, baptized 50 Years Of De-Evolution: 1973-2023 that celebrates
Devo‘s 50-year career lands in various configurations on October 20. The first is
a 4-LP set pressed on clear vinyl that’s limited to 3,000 copies worldwide, available exclusively from Rhino.com.
This deluxe version comes in a slipcase with a 28-page book, a Devo air freshener,
and a foldable paper hat that resembles the band’s iconic red energy domes.
Additionally, a lithograph of the album artwork is included.
A 2-CD version of the 50-song collection will also be available.
On the same day, a 25-song version of 50 Years Of De-Evolution (1973-2023)
will be released as a 2-LP set on black vinyl, and a 2-LP special edition
featuring blue and red vinyl will be available exclusively at retail.
Gerard Casala (vocalist/guitarist): “In the past this information has been suppressed. But now it can be told. Come celebrate 50 years of De-evolution with a mind-blowing, 50th Anniversary box set from Devo.”
Mark Mothersbaugh (keyboardist/producer): “This box set represents a great cross section of early experiments and later creations. I was looking to create a new sound, a concept in art and music that represented a new way of thinking about life on planet earth. With Devo, I think we did just that. Farewell to the first 50, Let’s get the next 50 started!”
