DEVO teams with Macbeth footwear Studio Project shoes 

Are we really “through being cool?” Not if DEVO can help it!

Sure, they’re still on the road promoting their effervescent comeback, “Something For Everybody,” and a new digital EP, “What We Do.” But they’ve still got ther fans’ fashion, first and foremost on their minds.

DEVO has just teamed with Macbeth Footwear for two limited-edition Studio Project shoes, available in red and blue versions. And these are exact replicas of the helmet-logo white slip-ons they themselves sport onstage, made from 3M-reflective textiles and 100 percent vegan with rubber outer soles.

Order them now at and get a free download of “Don’t Shoot (Polysics Remix).”

It’s a perfect time for DEVO (who’ve long predicted man’s de-evolution) to return, as the prophetic Mike Judge film “Idiocracy” rapidly comes true.

“And the ironic thing about DEVO is we were considered pessimists and having a bad attitude about life back in the ’70s,” snickers bandleader Mark Mothersbaugh. “But the truth is, we were actually optimists, because we were talking to people as if they would be able to change things, to get inspired and say ‘You know what? We could figure out solutions, and we could use facts and information! We don’t have to hide from them!’ But I think it could happen with this new generation coming up — they’ve got more tools than anybody ever had before, and with the Internet they’ve got the ability to connect with each other. So it would be fun to be a kid right now, I would think it would be an exciting time.”

It truly is Duty Now for the Future!
