We started the year with a release (TILTS) and now we'll end the year with one...

Image
SURPRISE: four of Justin K. Broadrick's incredible sonic personalities within one impressive 12" EP, simply titled Christmas. JESU lays the foundation with the initial hymn, along with brilliant remixes from related projects PALE SKETCHER and FINAL, plus an exclusive and brand new remix by the oppressive JK FLESH entity.

Originally self-released as a digital-only EP for Xmas 2010, the 35+ minutes of music within have been sonically upgraded by mastering wizard James Plotkin specifically for the two physical formats. Vinyl edition comes on complimentary ice-blue color wax housed in a glorious high-gloss full color jacket, CD edition also comes with high-gloss artwork and has an exclusive lyrics page.

* Each format is limited to a one-time pressing of 500 copies
* Stream the full release now over at SPIN Magazine
* Available to pre-order NOW at the Robotic Empire - Online Store

We are expecting these to arrive at RoboHQ within the first week or two of December and plan to rock all the pre-orders right back out the door hopefully just in time for the holidays. If all goes according to plan, folks should be receiving their packages right around Xmas itself.

However, because the entire postal system gets bogged down around the holidays, it is impossible to guarantee things at this time of year... that being said, Priority Mail is recommended for affordable semi-expedited delivery.

This release has been in the pipeline for ages and we're glad it's finally (almost) in existence, even if so damn close to the wire. We're thrilled to work with Justin K. Broadrick again and have plans to announce another JKB release in 2013.

Beyond that, it's been a wild year with a lot of changes for us but we're happy to say that some stability is finally on the horizon with new roots being put down (and/or in motion) after long periods of flux.

We keep chugging along with the Robotic Empire - Online Store and want to genuinely thank everyone who's ordered from us this year, or... ever! We couldn't keep this operation afloat without the direct support of our mailorder followers, and we really appreciate all of those who've stuck with us through the years or just found out about us recently. It's getting increasingly difficult to run a label like ours in this "landscape" and blah blah blah, the same thing you've probably heard a lot of times by now... but at the end of the day, we are a small operation and sincerely appreciate everyone who's helped.

Enough emo year-end-sentimentality, let's get to the MUSIC: lots of cool new stuff joins this update, including a rad NEIL YOUNG t-shirt (the same image infamously connected to LYNYRD SKYNYRD), OLD MAN GLOOM's appropriately-timed Christmas re-presses, BONGZILLA, PROTESTANT, THE AUSTRASIAN GOAT, and BASTARD NOISE / MAN IS THE BASTARD vinyl, SUTEKH HEXEN's new album and collections release on wax, sinister tapes from NIHILL and HALLOWED BUTCHERY and surprisingly/awesomely a fantastic new TAIGA cassette which is Bryant Clifford Meyer's solo project, our old dawg who is/was in such acts as ISIS, RED SPAROWES, PALMS and more!

On the re-stock tip we've got extensive Denovali vinyl imports aplenty, Magic Bullet essential re-ups abound, LSD AND THE SEARCH FOR GOD, more OLD MAN GLOOM on cassette and vinyl, plus some other random jibba jabb. Here are the full lists:

Image
And last but clearly not least, we have picked a winner for our most recent contest: congratulations to Björn Bauer for his incredible and intricate tree drawing that wins our shirt-design-contest. We received some seriously amazing submissions (either for content, skill and/or ability to make us laugh) but Björn's fantastic image hit the nail on the head. Check out his website for an extensive portfolio and more info on this great artist. Big ups to everyone who took the time and effort to submit something for this, it was a lot of fun going over all the entries, and (with their permission) we may post a few of the "runner up" images as well. We will post a larger version of Björn's graphic when we announce shirt ordering info in the coming weeks... stay tuned!

BOOM! Great way to end the year. Hope everyone reading this can reflect on all the good things that have happened to them these past 11-12 months and let it percolate and overpower any bad elements of the year. OK OK enough hippy nonsense, don't trample your fellow man or anything but Robo-capitalist scum still say "go buy our rotatable plastic circles!"

We can't rest on our laurels for long, so hot on the heels of releasing HELMS ALEE's Night Terror and TORCHE's second pressing of Meanderthal, we are very pleased to announce that the GODS & QUEENS untitled debut album is now available for pre-order!

For those unfamiliar with this relatively new group, the two songs posted should show a bit of the variety this trio has cooked up... but all seven songs on this sound pretty different from one another. Here's the formal description we awkwardly conjured for this thing:

GODS & QUEENS debut with washes of reverb and echoes of shoegazer's catchier moments. There's mature inconsistency here... or in other words: fast songs, slow songs and one droning psychedelic blissfest. To semi-appropriately quote the band, "GODS & QUEENS is a three piece band from Brooklyn/Philadelphia who tried in vain to blatantly steal riffs and song patterns from some of their favorite bands (like HOOVER, LUNGFISH, JUNE OF 44, SPACEMAN 3 and the like)... but failed in every attempt. Instead here are seven songs that resemble nothing of who or what they were intended to be. A few have said it sounds like a low rent, super depressed version of FUGAZI, or QUICKSAND with out the start stop timing." What this boils down to is that GODS & QUEENS is playing an abnormally dark blend of indie/shoegazer/whatever-people-want-to-call-it.

It might(/might not) also be worth mentioning that Jamie Getz from this band also used to be in VERSOMA, GET FUCKED, and LICKGOLDENSKY... amongst others. Robin Fowler also played in the later incarnation of VERSOMA and we have no idea what Ben Roysdon's history is, as the guy is an enigma.

Not shipping out until about a week from now, we do have the records in-house now... so we are taking pre-orders. This turned out pretty damn sweet, and we made this as both the CD and vinyl LP formats package together in one gatefold sleeve. This is our first split label release in a many many years, but we're stoked to work with longtime Euro-bros at Adagio830 / Bis Aufs Messer to present the GODS & QUEENS debut to you. Folks overseas in Europe should pick this jam up from them, but otherwise feel free to grab this now in the Robotic Empire Online Store.

This first pressing is all on colored vinyl, pressed in the following quantities:
* 425 copies on translucent purple (Robotic Empire / USA version)
* 425 copies on translucent orange (Adagio830 / Europe version)
* 150 copies on half clear / half translucent orange (band version)

Amped to get out there and finally tour a bit, GODS & QUEENS have some pretty kickass shows scheduled:

10/05 - Bethlehem, PA @ The Burners - w/ Weston
10/14 - New York, NY @ Rogan Store - w/ Fucked Up (as part of their 12-hour show)
10/17 - Philadelphia, PA @ Pilam - w/ Monotonix
10/26 - Brooklyn, NY @ Europa - w/ Young Widows, Tombs
10/27 - Philadelphia, PA @ The Barbary - w/ Young Widows
10/28 - Baltimore, MD @ Talking Head - w/ Young Widows, The Wayward
10/29 - Richmond, VA @ Nara Sushi - w/ Young Widows, Hex Machine, Mouthbreather
10/30 - Washington, DC @ The Girl Cave - w/ The Well
12/12 - Brooklyn, NY @ Union Pool - w/ Disappear

Besides this gnarly new release, the Robotic Empire Online Store has some small but powerful additions this week. Lots of HEAVY for the burly dawgs out there:

We're stoked to present an exclusive t-shirt from our burly southern brothers in THOU. This Viking Warlock design in appropriate grimness features almost-black ink on a slightly faded black t-shirt, so from the day you slip it on it looks like your favorite old faded shirt from years ago. It's just as comfortable too, printed on a super fine-threaded Tultex brand t-shirt. This design is "exclusive" in the sense that no other online shops have this, but the band should have it on tour with them as well!

The front has THOU's gnarly bat logo with a crucial viking underneath, and the back has pillaging imagery with the explicit mantra at the bottom: "Eat. Fight. Fuck". One of our favorite active heavy/doom/sludge bands going right now, to us THOU are legends in the making. The photo above is of the front and back of this beast. This is available now in the Robotic Empire Online Store in sizes Youth Large (XS) through Double Extra Large (XXL).

Image
We are also pleased to announce that TORCHE's Self-Titled Reissue 12" has been pressed for a third time and is now available again after a few months of unavailability. This time around instead of applying a sticker to the bag, we had them print on the bag itself... and although the difference is subtle, it's nerdworthy enough for us to be psyched on it! Another difference with this pressing is that we opted to try the "planets" effect on one color version, albeit a little different. Small triangles of colored vinyl were inserted into the vinyl itself and the effect turned out pretty cool... and varied. A few examples can be seen in the photo above (along with a couple of our dogs). A slightly blurry but semi-hilarious closeup photo can be seen here (and at the bottom of this update). This (and literally tons of other TORCHE stuff) is available now in the Robotic Empire Online Store.

Image
Besides that trippy triangle planet "pyramids" version, we also made four other color vinyl variations in attempts of complimenting the myriad colors in the gatefold jacket's artwork. The pressing info for this third press is as follows:

* 200 on AUTUMN (red/orange/yellow tri-blend)
* 200 on DESERT (half translucent orange / half beer)
* 200 on ELECTRIC BLUE (dark blue / light blue swirl)
* 200 on PYRAMIDS (cokebottle green with small triangle inserts)
* 200 on SALMON (opaque pink / clear swirl)

If you've read all of this so far you are probably already familiar with the behemoth that is TORCHE, but in the off chance that this is the first time you're reading about them, here is the formal description we wrote for this Self-Titled Reissue album:

Once described as "stoner pop", Miami quartet TORCHE could just as awkwardly be called "doom pop" or "thunder rock"... but what all these clumsy words boil down to is simultaneously one of the catchiest AND heaviest bands to ever grace the worlds of metal, indie and underground music in general. Sound like hyperbole? TORCHE actually has their own patented "bomb string" tuning which is literally unparalleled in heavy music (past or present) and they use it liberally on this, their self-titled debut full-length album.

Easily the heaviest record Robotic Empire had released to date, never has a "metal" album existed quite like the mind-blowing debut release from TORCHE. Hinted at by members’ former group FLOOR, truly anthemic, triumphant and absolutely massive heavy metal has never been this undeniably catchy! With gloriously sung, harmonized and soaring vocal arrangements accompanying the most monolithic riffs of modern times, TORCHE reaches to push the envelope and then engulfs it in flames. Call it "stoner pop"or "exquisite brutality"... call it whatever you want. In the end, TORCHE are still a major force to fuck with, and undeniable leaders of an incredible new style of heavy music.

This is the deluxe, fully re-mixed and re-mastered edition of TORCHE’s debut album... which has been completely reworked from the ground up due to the band’s overall dissatisfaction with the original release. This new version is a much more accurate representation of the band with an even heavier (and clearer) mix than the original, also containing an all new bonus track originally recorded during the initial tracking (but only recently receiving some absolutely epic vocal treatment). Robotic Empire is genuinely proud to re-release this incredible album... the vinyl edition having a beautifully appropriate gatefold jacket, full color printed inner sleeve and limited colored vinyl. This is also our first release with printwork directly on the bag itself! Enjoy!

The song "Mentor" from this album can be heard online here.

This week at Robotic Empire we've got a slew of great restocks along with some sweet new items we think folks will be stoked on. Magic Bullet has been releasing some top notch stuff lately and we've finally got those items in stock. ROMANCE OF YOUNG TIGERS, AUGHRA and LYMBYC SYSTYM are all worth checking out as these bands have made some beautifully packaged music. COLISEUM's standout Goddamage EP has been repressed on a killer 2x7" and we picked up some of those on colored vinyl along with a new color version of their blistering latest LP, No Salvation. Our most recent release, GODS & QUEENS, was also released on cassette by Dead Format and the packaging on this one is pretty sweet as it's been both hand-screened and branded!

Continuing along with our love for the band THOU, we scored some copies of the To Carry A Stone 7"s from Noxious Noise. This thing is intense, as it comes housed in a silkscreened black cardstock sleeve with silver ink and an 8 page booklet attached inside. Also note the recent Viking Warlock t-shirt we printed up for THOU, one of the most brutal blackened doom/sludge bands going right now! We also managed to unearth some copies of the ancient TOWERS / US FUNK TEAM split 7" that's been unavailable for years now. For restocks this week we know lost of people will be glad to hear that we secured some of the last copies of VERSE EN COMA's "Rialto" 10"+CD from our distributor! We've got about 150 copies on black vinyl so get them while they last, as we don't know if/when they'll be available again.

That's it for this week, not too shabby! Hit up the Robotic Empire Online Store for all these jams and more, and also check out our new blog below too. We finally entered the 20th century and got ourselves a blog, but we upped the ante a bit and back-posted ever single update we have from the last 9.5 years of the label's existence. Overkill? Yes. Check out our poor early writing skills at their best/worst! Thanks.
