Update: Rolling Stone has that new song up here. Give it a listen. They also have a little more info about the project.

We haven't heard much from Devo since their pretty-damn-good 2010 comeback album Something for Everybody.

Next week the band, which was formed in Akron way back in the early '70s, returns with a new single all about Mitt Romney's poor dog — yep, the one Mitt tied to the top of the station wagon during a family vacation in 1983.

The song — "Don't Roof Rack Me, Bro! (Remember Seamus)" — comes out on August 25 as a digital single.

Gerald Casale, Devo's co-founder, is the main member behind the track, which is just one part of an extensive campaign he's launching to bring awareness to what a dick move it was for Romney to strap Seamus' carrier, with the pooch inside, to the top of his car for a 12-hour drive from Boston to Ontario.

Casale is also launching Remember Seamus, designed a shirt for Dogs Against Romney, and helped develop the game The Crate Escape: Seamus Unleashed, which will be released the day after the single comes out (which happens to be National Dog Day).
