DEVO has taken to the recent task of repurposing some of their merch that would have been sold at concerts this year and making some lemons out of lemonade with something that could have only come out of the coronavirus outbreak: Energy Dome face shields!

Masks, too! The band dropped these highly timely merchandise as part of the 40th anniversary of the DEVO Energy Dome.

It’s the 40th Anniversary of DEVO’s Energy Dome – a DEVO icon that is often as misunderstood as the band itself. Although they have been mistaken for flower pots, dog bowls, car urinals, lamp shades, and eventually relegated specifically for use a holiday office parties, these holy totems were actually designed with a more important purpose in mind.

“It was designed according to ancient ziggaurat mount proportions used in votive worship. Like the mounds it collects energy and recirculates it. In this case the dome collects energy that escapes from the crown of the human head and pushes it back into the Medula Oblongata for increased mental energy.” – Gerald V. Casale
