Hes just renamed himself Jerry Jihad and is recording a new album with a backing band called the Evildoers.
Jihad says hes fed up with the stupidity of our leaders today, in all parties. Like that guy in the movie [Network], Im just not going to take it anymore.
The new band also features fellow Devo members Mark Mothersbaugh, Bob Mothersbaugh and Robert Castle, plus Josh Freese of A Perfect Circle and Dave Shultz of Goo Goo Dolls.
The Evildoers debut record will be titled Mine Is Not A Holy War, and Jihad says its meant to attack the scourge of politics and society today: people who believe rather than think.
Jerry Jihads debut album will storm record store shelves July 11, followed by a tour later this summer.
