Devo's 'Something for Everybody' Due June 15th

May 4, 2010 1:22 PM ET

Get ready to dust off your Energy Domes: Devo have revealed their new album, Something for Everybody, will finally arrive on June 15th. The reunited new wave band's summer LP comes two decades after their last album, 1990's Smooth Noodle Maps. The Club Devo site has also unveiled Something for Everybody's album cover, which features a woman lustily on the verge of consuming a miniaturized version of the band's new sky blue Energy Dome.

As Rolling Stone previously reported, Devo — Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh, Gerald and Bob Casale, and new drummer Josh Freese — have been debuting new tracks from SXSW 2009 to Coachella 2010, with a tour commemorating both Are We Not Men? We Are Devo and Freedom of Choice in between. So far, fans have heard four potential Something for Everybody tracks: "Fresh," "Watch Us Work It," "Don't Shoot" and "What We Do." Because Devo are creatures of science, the bandmembers are letting fans choose which 12 of the 16 songs recorded for Something will actually appear on the album with their "Devo Song Study." Check out the candidates below.

The Devo site is also offering up normal-sized blue Energy Dome to fans for $32. The iconic caps, which first appeared on the cover of Freedom of Choice, promise to "redirect otherwise wasted Orgone energy back down through the top of your head into your body."

Potential Something for Everybody Track List:

"Don't Shoot"
"Human Rocket"
"Knock Boots"
"Later is Now"
"Let's Get To It"
"March On"
"Mind Games"
"No Place Like Home"
"Please Baby Please"
"Signal Ready"
"Step Up"
"Watch Us Work It"
"What We Do"

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
