Devo to release song about Mitt Romney's dog

By Rolling Stone

Devo are set to release a track later this month titled "Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro! (Remember Seamus)." It is inspired by Mitt Romney's notorious road trip from Massachusetts to Ontario, during which he transported the family dog, Seamus, in a kennel strapped to the roof of his station wagon.

According to the Orchard, the distributor behind the track, the digital single will be released on Aug. 25.

The track also comes as Devo's founder and commercial director, Gerald V. Casale, kicks off his Remember Seamus campaign, which is supposed to help "make 2012 the year where animals like Seamus are valued and honesty is praised."

Devo are also helping to back Dogs Against Romney, with Casale designing a special-edition shirt for the group. Casale is also involved in an upcoming smartphone game called "The Crate Escape: Seamus Unleashed," which sees release on Aug. 26, otherwise known as National Dog Day.

DEVO.

Whip this you wrinkly old dirtbags! Can't wait until the tour hits our town. Should be tons of fun Gerald. Yep, watching a bunch of aged queens bounce around the stage on their walkers with the bright yellow tennis balls.
