Deep Discount Turbo Mega Sale + New Distro Update

So our last update's store-wide $2 CD sale was a CRAZY BLOWOUT!! We just wanted to clear a little space, but the results were totally unexpected! Of course our gears are turning now and we have decided a few other formats also need a store-wide discount on the VERY CHEAP. Until the end of June, in addition to all remaining standalone CDs being only two bucks, regardless of normal price 99% of the following four formats will be heavily discounted in an all new Deep Discount Turbo Mega Sale(tm):

7"s = $2.99
2xCDs = $4.99
DVDs = $4.99
CD+DVDs = $4.99

In addition to:
CDs = $1.99
CD-Rs = $1.99

Just like the CD sale, please order more than $10 worth of stuff so we don't totally eat it on this... but yeah, if the prior $2 CD sale is any indication, stuff is likely to move fast! We had nearly 500 CD titles when the sale started and around 200 less than 12hrs later (down to less than 100 now!). Better skedaddle on over to the Robotic Empire - Online Store if ye be keen!

In addition to us loosing our minds and recklessly discounting the above formats, we've also stocked a small but mighty amount of new items & restocks. Almost entirely crucial bangers this time, there's not a ton of stuff but its almost all gnarly:

* Barn Owl - Ancestral Star 12" (Thrill Jockey) $14.99
* Des Ark - Don't Rock The Boat, Sink The *ucker - ORANGE COLORED VINYL 12" (Lovitt) $14.99

* Lace Bows - Glitter Pulse Cassette (Cubic Pyramid) $6.99
* Liturgy - Aesthethica - CLEAR COLORED VINYL 2x12" (Thrill Jockey) $19.99

Yeah, pretty much speaks for itself... lotsa good stuff there to sink your teeth into. Its also worth mentioning to anyone thinking about getting the FLOOR Below & Beyond deluxe vinyl box set, we're down to less than 10 copies now and once its gone... that's it! The 8xCD set is also available, and the "FLOORCOMBO" discount jawns is still going on at the moment so you can cop $10 off +a badass free 8xButton set if you order Below & Beyond on either format w/ a FLOOR t-shirt. Holla at that here. Plus with our $2 CD sale for the month of May, there ain't really a reason NOT to hit up the Robotic Empire - Online Store!

We're gonna wrap up this update with a little love to some good friends. As summer creeps in the northern hemisphere, underground fests are in full organizational swing and we've got widespread comrades involved in TWO separate awesome fiestas on the same weekend in very different parts of the country.

For all the East Coast and/or Virginia natives, Best Friends Day is going down August 18th-21st and as the previously mentioned PG.99 reunion is happening there, so are some other awesome bros... er bands performing as well: BARONESS, CONVERGE, CAPSULE, STRIKE ANYWHERE, JESUIT, MAGRUDERGRIND, THE CATALYST and a whole rack of other awesome ones we aren't really directly related to in any way. Plus if you like hillbilly water parks, booze, bikes, scavenger hunts and/or awesome people... BFD is seriously a blast.

For anyone outside of the eastern half of the country, our good friends in MONtana are putting on the badass Total Fest the same weekend (August 18-20). We're talking mass river tubing, BBQs, a record swap, outdoor ruggedry and, oh yeah, bands! They're touting BIG BUSINESS, AKIMBO, GULL (Nate from ULTRA DOLPHINS's unreal 1manband), WHITE SH!T, THE MEN, MILK MUSIC and like 35+ odd more TBA. Pretty stacked and all ages, volunteer-run, non-profit and all that goodness of course. Hit up the Total Fest website and/or twitter for updates. Good dudes/backed hard.

Had to drop some shoutouts to our good friends music-related projects, both of which really should be a lot of fun. If you're remotely close to Montana or Richmond, or just looking for an awesome roadtrip excuse... well, there ya go.

Thanks for reading all this jibba jab, now to pimp ourselves one final time please hit up the Robotic Empire - Online Store to help us clear some space at HQ. Peace!
