Electro-art-rock iconoclasts DEVO celebrate their early recorded works from the Warner Bros. Records vaults with remastered vinyl and expanded CD editions of their second album, 1979’s DUTY NOW FOR THE FUTURE, and their fourth album, 1981’s NEW TRADITIONALISTS. DUTY NOW will be available beginning on April 17th, Record Store Day, on vinyl while NEW TRADITIONALISTS will follow on May 11th.
Both albums have been re-mastered from the original analog recordings and housed in DEVO-luxish packages with a plethora of bonus tracks. Both titles will be released on CD as well as color vinyl album packages and both will include the Bonus Tracks. Please see below for track listings. The reissues follow last year’s expanded first and third groundbreaking albums: Q: ARE WE NOT MEN? A: WE ARE DEVO! and FREEDOM OF CHOICE.
