Devo take to the road in support of their current Warner Bros. records album, SOMETHING FOR EVERYBODY and their brand new digital EP, "WHAT WE DO."

As previously reported, Devo has just launched a truly unique, groundbreaking interactive video for the song, "WHAT WE DO." The video was directed by Devo's own Gerald Casale along with Kii Arens and Jason Trucco and features band members and a cast of Devo-attired professional thespians. What makes the short film so unique is that the viewer has the option to scan the entire 360 degrees of the viewing field to allow control of any focal point of interest. As various characters enter the scenario clad in a piece of Devo merchandise, the viewer can directly access the Official DEVO Store and immediately purchase the featured merchandise with a click. This level of user-friendly video technology is a first and Devo are the perfect creative entity to introduce this visually compelling fan-centric medium to an awaiting world.

Devo's Gerald Casale explains: "The user/viewer is the director in this video. They decide what to see and when to see it in real time. They will be able to navigate and save a version of what they think others should see. It's like having a vote in Devo's creative process. It's truly interactive."
