Robotic Empire Update - New T-Shirts from WRONG, GRATEFUL DEAD/MISFITS, and ROBOTIC EMPIRE!

Lot's of heavy hitters for the update that will close out the month of August. There's a new 8" split from Ampere and Raein! We've picked up more releases from Coliseum and are stoked to have some Creepoid albums in the store finally. New Thrill Jockey releases from Evan Caminiti & Holy Sons, then some colored wax from Planes Mistaken For Stars (one of which is an out of print version!). Sed Non Satiata albums and the new Tideland cassettes were sent in from Protagonist Records, and a solid selection of releases from Orca Wolf Records including the Self-Titled Usnea album. Be sure to give a listen to some of the Dullest Records releases we have in stock at the moment, they have some good prices on quality 2x12"s. Glance through the mega restocks from Deathwish Records too! All these can be found in the Robotic Empire Online Store



On the T-Shirt front we are excited to have printed up some SHIRTS! for WRONG to support their upcoming September tour! Make sure you get out to see these fellows or have some royal regrets... A repress of their 4 song EP on Robotic Empire is currently finishing up at the plant and we should have them in house mid September.

Black Tusk, Lazer/Wulf, and Wrong will tour a portion of the U.S. together next month. Dates include:

9/4 Asheville, NC @ Mothlight (no Wrong)
9/5 Wilmington, NC @ 42nd St. Tavern (no Wrong)
9/6 Frederick, MD @ Cafe 611 (no Wrong)
9/7 Cleveland, OH @ The Foundry
9/8 Chicago, IL @ Reggie's
9/9 Newport, KY @ Southgate House
9/10 St. Louis, MO @ Fubar
9/11 Nashville. TN @ The End
9/12 Atlanta, GA @ Slaughter-Que
9/13 Pensacola, FL @ Handlebar
9/14 New Orleans, LA @ Siberia
9/15 Austin, TX @ Red 7

9/17 Little Rock, AR @ Vinos

If you missed out on the killer Grateful Dead / Misfits mind meld shirts we scored last year here's your chance to grab one now. Limited quantities on these dark grey versions and we're pretty sure this is the last time you'll see them in the shop.


Do you like sexy lady silhouettes? What if that sexy lady is brandishing a spear? Well we're into it! That's why we've got a new Robotic Empire T-shirt sporting that exact image. Designed by your very own mailorder packer Josie, (who we wouldn't put it past to swing around a spear of her own) these come on grey shirts with a metallic gold ink. Don't miss out, these Robotic Empire shirts go quick and it's rare that we repeat the same design twice. Collector's items? Maybe!?!?

Oh yeah, and for anyone who still thinks Robotic Empire is based in Richmond, VA we'd like to clear the air and explain how that hasn't been the case for quite some time. Why are we even bringing this up? Well, to point out the fact that Robotic Empire Records is actually set up in the mountains of north east Washington state which is currently burning the hell up! Considering the killer update we have for you this week you best act fast if you see something you like, who the heck knows if it'll all go up in smoke this time next week. So get on it!

Torche sale? Fitting...

While we've been wondering if our straw house warehouse (yup we said STRAW) will incinerate this month we occupied ourselves with stuccoing, liming, painting, rearranging, and resetting up the warehouse. Anytime the warehouse gets organized we're sure to find some odds and ends and so we have! Check the Warehouse Finds list below and grab some goodies. To be even more crazy, we're going through the entire distro catalog and running what we'll call the Alphabet Sales from now into September and maybe even into October until we've gone from A to Z. Massive price drops on lots of good music. We just want to freshen things up and make more room so take advantage.

Phew, aren't ya'll lucky....

Robotic Empire August Update. Thou 12" sale!

Got a tiny little update for you guys this week as we wait for more goodies to arrive. With new releases from HOLLOW SUNSHINE, THOU, and ROSETTA it's small but worth checking out!
