iconic, er, iconoclasts DEVO are publishing a book to chronicle their 4-decade-long career. Make that BOOKS – there’s to be Unmasked, chock-full of rare photos and bandmember accounts, plus The Brand, a more straightforward rendering of the group’s history. Taken together, the two volumes, which founding members Mark Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale are overseeing, are intended to paint a complete portrait of the group over the years via member commentary, press coverage, discussions about the records and tours, and of course visuals that will include classic and unpublished videos and artwork. You’ll be able to snag the set as a regular book, aka the “Classic Edition” 320-page book (cost: $65); and the limited-to-500-copies (and expensive, at $330) “Signature Edition” featuring deluxe clamshell packaging autographed by the band.
