Devo is making plans to hit the road. 

The pioneering new wave group has announced dates for the "Hardcore Devo Live!" tour, coming up this summer.  Band members say in a website post that they'll pay tribute to their roots with the tour, with performances showcasing the "experimental music" they did in the mid-'70s, prior to receiving a recording contract. 

Devo adds that the tour is "dedicated to the memory of Robert Casale," a founding band member who's "now touring the universe."  Casale, also known in the group as Bob 2, died of heart failure back in February.  Devo will launch the ten-date trek in Baltimore, Maryland on June 18th.
