Devo - New Traditionalists


On this date in 1981, Devo released their fourth album, New Traditionalists. It contained the singles, "Beautiful World", "Through Being Cool" and "Jerkin' Back 'N' Forth". None of the singles charted but the album did. It reached the #23 spot on the U.S. albums chart and the #50 spot on the U.K. albums chart. Early editions of the album came with a bonus single of "Working In A Coalmine", which was also available on the Heavy Metal soundtrack. The Akron, Ohio punk/new wave band went on hiatus in the early 90's as the band members were involved in separate projects. They resumed recording and performing in 1996.
