  7. Hey there everyone! Hope you're having a lovely spring. The weather has been super pleasant over at Robo HQ and new flowers continue to bloom all over the mountainsides every week. A great time of year to be outside and a great time of year to offer a new/old album for order. Robotic Empire is teaming up with Hyperrealist Records once again to offer Baroness' First & Second album for order through our online store. Order Here Freshly repressed with a silver foil stamped jacket this time around and a clear colored vinyl option along with standard black. These are set to arrive in the next week and I'll begin packing and shipping them ASAP. Baroness are touring machines throughout the entire year so hopefully you guys can get out to see them at one of their shows. Tour dates listed below! Unavailable since 2013, Hyperrealist Records has just repressed Baroness' crucial First & Second album and Robotic Empire is pleased to be the main mailorder outlet for the release! Official street date for the reissue is June 7th and I am accepting orders now. This new repressed version has silver foil stamped on the jacket and comes on clear colored vinyl or standard black vinyl. Will ship ASAP once it arrives at Robo HQ. Order a copy now in the Robotic Empire Online Store : Here BARONESS' now-classic, formative material sees a proper reissue, combined together as one deluxe LP. A bit dirtier, punker and more metal than their current rock-infused catchy weirdness, First & Second is an important document in the lineage of this awesome band, and all 38 minutes of music have been completely re-mixed and re-mastered for a much fuller sound than ever before. Housed in a beautiful gatefold jacket with guitarist/vocalist John Dyer Baizley's elaborate and intricate artwork (spread through the exterior, interior and printed dustsleeve), this Silver Foil-Stamped beauty is available once again! 2019 Tour Dates June 9 – Baltimore, MD – The Sound Garden June 10 – Philadelphia, PA – Creep Records June 11 – Fords, NJ – Vintage Vinyl June 12 – Babylon, NY – Looney Tunes June 14 – Brooklyn, NY – Rough Trade June 15 – Poughkeepsie, NY – Darkside Records June 16 – Boston, MA – ONCE/Newbury Comics June 19 – Mexico City, Mexico – Lunario June 21 – Santiago, Chile – Blondie June 22 – Buenos Aires, Argentina – Uniclub June 23 – Sao Paulo, Brazil – Fabrique Club July 11 – Lancaster, PA – Chameleon Club July 12 – Poughkeepsie, NY – The Chance July 13 – Huntington, NY – The Paramount July 14 – Hartford, CT – Webster Theater July 16 – Buffalo, NY – Town Ballroom July 17 – Pittsburgh, PA – Mr. Smalls Theatre July 19 – Columbus, OH – Newport Music Hall July 20 – Detroit, MI – The Majestic July 21 – Indianapolis, IN – Deluxe at Old National Centre July 23 – Palatine, IL – Durty Nellie’s July 24 – Des Moines, IA – Wooly’s July 26 – Omaha, NE – The Waiting Room July 27 – Lawrence, KS – The Granada July 28 – St. Louis, MO – The Ready Room July 30 – Nashville, TN – Cannery Ballroom July 31 – Birmingham, AL – Saturn August 4 – Baton Rouge, LA – Varsity Theatre August 5 – Atlanta, GA – Buckhead Theatre August 6 – Tampa, FL – The Orpheum August 7 – Ft.

  12. Whoa! I hope you're sitting down because (holy crap!) Robotic Empire has a brand new website! This gorgeous New Online Store is a considerable & refreshing change and has been in the works for close to a year (hmm, maybe it's been over a year?). Robo's ancient zencart site that you have been loyally ordering on all these years is 15 years old! Yes seriously, 15 years old!! It was always threatening to break (or was breaking) and was a major headache to use. It's hard for me to truly explain how stoked I am to have this cleaner, way more user friendly, and reliable website so I'll just suffice with "I'm beyond thrilled!!" There are so many enjoyable features on this new online store so please allow me a moment to list a few: * Multiple variants of an album are combined and listed under one product page (my OCD is so pleased) * Cleaner look with large cover art images that make shopping more delightful * Improved customer accounts with up to date info about your order, it's status and once shipped, it's tracking number!! * Customers receive Email notification with tracking info once their order ships * Various payment options available including Shopify Pay which takes no % cut from Robo (unlike paypal) * "New Items To The Shop" section let's you keep up to date on all new additions and restocks to the store * About section has been spruced up with some fresh photos. * The Discography page is still horribly out of date but will be updated soon! Promise! There is much, much more, including a ton of features on the back end that make my life tremendously easier. Certain aspects of this new shop even cut out a few steps in my packing and shipping process which means your orders will get shipped out to you faster. I'll stop blabbering because there are more exciting things to announce below. I encourage you to click on the "New Items To The Shop" section as I won't be line listing the new editions and restocks in this update as I normally do. I want to encourage you guys to browse through the "New Items To The Shop" area of the store and find out for yourself. Items are listed in order of most recently added to oldest. Check out the New Online Store now! In celebration of the new online store launch I have stacks of free items to give away with every order! It could be a 7", 10", 12", CD, DVD or even a T-shirt, so be sure to list your shirt size when you order just in case I'm tossing in a shirt for you. I'll be randomly pulling from the distro, so it's whatever strikes my fancy. Not only will everyone get a free item when they order, but if your order total is $40 or over (before shipping) you will get a freshly printed Robotic Empire T-Shirt! This vintage "Old Man With Harp" image has been long out of print but has been resurrected especially for this new store launch! "Old Man With Harp" is printed on army green Anvil Ringspun brand shirts with tan and black ink by those fine folks over at Broken Press in Seattle. Make sure to include your shirt size in the notes when you place your order. If you don't want to order $40 just to get the new shirt, you can order it direct here - New Shirt I want to thank Ali Croft of Skirven & Croft for her hard work on the new website and all her patience with me as I crawled out of the zencart dark ages! Robo's intern, Kris Hannum, has been an indispensable help with getting this site up and running. So much data entry was needed and most all of that fell on Kris. I can't thank him enough for the extreme detail he went into on every aspect I requested he complete. Please be sure to check out his label, Conditions Records. Conditions Records releases are available to purchase in the Robo online store so add a few to your cart, or order direct from Kris, to help show your appreciation of all his hard work! Last, but certainly not least, I say thank you to Deja for her detailed counting, counting, counting! She was a stupendous help getting the physical inventory counted and up to date for the new store launch! Plus she has a ferret named Ozzy which makes her all the more amazing in my book. Deja will be on hand to help pack and ship those Jesu orders once the product arrives at Robo HQ later in August. Thank you guys so much! It's been a blessing to have such a reliable team supporting me in this major effort and new chapter for Robotic Empire! Alright, I know everyone has been eagerly awaiting this announcement too, so here it is! Jesu's Ascension is in production! Thanks for all the inquiries and requests for this release over the years! I'm sorry it had to take so long but you will see it has been worth the wait! The official release date is August 31st and you can place your pre-orders now on the BRAND SPANKIN NEW ONLINE STORE!! Please remember that any additional items you add to your order won't ship until the Jesu records are in house. I expect that to be around mid August. Ascension has been remixed by Justin Broadrick and and remastered by James Plotkin. Packaging for this beauty includes a gatefold jacket with matte finish and printed inner sleeves with full album lyrics. 500 have been pressed on black vinyl and 500 pressed on white vinyl. A limited # of white copies come with a screenprinted cloth patch that displays the Jesu logo. Go add this baby to your cart! - Order Ascension Here You may have noticed that Thou's Peasant has been out of stock but no worries, it's currently being repressed. I expect Peasant to be available and shipping just in time for their new release to drop August 31st via Sacred Bones. A limited number of copies come with a luxuriously large 10" x 10" screenprinted cloth patch featuring the Horse Woman design and text from the shirt we printed last year. Some folks have requested the ability to purchase the patch as a stand alone item so I've made that option available too (in case you already own the album but don't want to miss out on the patch). I have to say, I really love this image, it's one of my favorites! Order the Peasant repress here & you can order the patch separately here - Patch Orders Here I'm trying to keep this update short and sweet so you can cruise over to the new online store and have a look around. If you happen to run into any bugs please use the contact form to notify me. I hope you find some new music to add to your cart and enjoy this summer with friends! I do want to recommend one new item in the distro that I can't seem to get off my turntable. Check out Now, Now's album "Saved". You guys are truly amazing! I thank you so much for all the encouragement and support during this new online store launch and also for the excitement surrounding Jesu's Ascension. I love reading all your comments and feel so fortunate to still be involved in this community after all these years! Have a lovely July and make sure to spend time with friends and family! Much Love!
  13. It's Friday and I'm hoping to send you off into the Memorial Day Weekend with a new cassette release by Virginia Creep which is available in the online store now! Those fine fellows have three new songs for you all to check out via a limited run of cassettes. Full color artwork, digital download included, and both sides of the tape feature all three songs. The digital only version is also available for order on Virginia Creep's Bandcamp and all of your other favorite digital outlets. An interview with the band is forthcoming on Chunky Glasses' website Chunky Glasses so keep an eye out over there to find out what questions they had for those guys. If you live in the DC area they've got some shows planned for this summer and the band and I will keep you up to date on those events as we hear about them. Head on over to the Robotic Empire Online store and pick up one of those tapes! Order Dark Corners Here! The last cassette ep by Virginia Creep is sold out so don't miss out on this one! I have a nice little distro update to goes along with the new release announcement so please be sure to read over the below lists. The Body records have been restocked and new albums added to the store. Chelsea Wolfe restocks and new additions, Corrupted reissue from Throne Records and Charles Bradley restocks. I also have some of the final copies of Medusa's Divine Malice 12"s and Racebannon tapes from Auris Apothecary. Hey! Thou's Heathen is back in stock too! At the beginning of the month we were pleased to offer Thou's "The House Primordial" on our bandcamp site - Thou On Robo Bandcamp in addition to lots of other Thou material so if you missed that, please give a listen to their newest offering of songs! The House Primordial will be available on vinyl via Raw Sugar Records on May 29th. Did you know Robotic Empire is on Discogs? To be honest, I update the Discogs store with new additions and restocks faster then the online store (except in this instance, ha!) so give a glance over there every now and then to see what's new! - Robo Discogs Store Wednesday night in Spokane I had the extreme pleasure of seeing Richard Buckner perform in a tiny and amazing spot called The Bartlett. It was a sit down show with 30 people and it was so intimate and enjoyable I'm still thinking about it! He had some great stories to tell between songs and made everyone laugh quite a few times. Well worth the long drive down from the mountain.

  14. February. And the snow has been melting and melting. Quite strange for it to be early February and experiencing warm weather that melts the snow. Then suddenly I'm plunged into ice season as a cold snap shows up this week, making it sketchy to drive some of the roads up this way. Dogs, horses, trucks and humans are slipping all over the place. Looking back at photos from one year ago today, Robo HQ was absolutely buried in snow. Every year is different, it sure keeps things interesting up here. One great thing about the early melt is the south facing mountainsides have developed large patches of bare ground. It's the perfect time to go hiking with the pups and search for white tail and elk sheds. As soon as I'm done announcing this new update that's exactly what I'm headed out to do so let's get to it. This month's update sure has been fun! I've enjoyed bringing in some new additions to the distro and restocking a bunch of popular items. My personal favorites from this batch will have to be the Four Tet - New Energy album, the Khruangbin - Con Todo El Mundo (of which I do have 2 colored copies available), the Jessica 93 - Guilty Species that came in from France, that wonderful Holy Motors album out on Wharf Cat, and last but not least, the Songs: Ohia - Travels in Constants 12". I have a few colored copies of this, 3 to be exact. Now those are just my favorites, and as you can see by browsing the New Releases list below, that's just a few from this list of goodies. I made sure to get a bunch of Grails, Songs: Ohia, and Envy titles back in stock for this month and I have colored copies of Elder's Reflections album in the store once again. Well I hope everyone finds something they'd like to pick up from this months list and so I'll leave you to it. Have a great rest of the month and hopefully on next week's update I'll have a photo of a gorgeous elk shed to show off. You guys rule! Thanks so much!

  15. Happy New Year to everyone and I hope a great holiday break was had by all. There's a decent amount of snow here at Robo HQ so snowmobiling, cross country skiing, , snowshoeing, snowy horseback rides, and lots of plowing have been enjoyed during the time off. Keeping away from the computer for days at a time was lovey and a gorgeous full moon on the first day of 2018 was a real treat! Well to start off the new year I have a great distro update for everyone to read over. Some of this stock has been here for months and months but there just hasn't been time to get it processed and up on the online store. If you glance through the lists below you'll see another City of Caterpillar record from Repeater Records is now in stock along with restocks on the Self-Titled 12". Elder double LPs and restocks are up for sale in the store in addition to new releases from Accident Prone which includes that new House Of Low Culture 4-way split. Elder Magick released a wonderful shoegaze album from Lacing that needs to be checked out. I've restocked the Thou/Great Falls 7" from Hell Comes Home and from what I understand, these are the last of the last of them. The "Accidents Grotesque" album from Great Falls is also available in the online store now. Echo Canyon Records sent me a nice quantity of the Mihai Edrisch album on Maroon Colored Vinyl so grab those up. Last but not least is a live album from Man Is the Bastard from 1992. The restocks list isn't anything to skip over either! Some may have seen over the holiday that I received back from an Austrian Distributor, a decent amount of oop Robotic Stock. Please read below to find gems from Capsule, Floor, Nadja/A Storm of Light, Pygmy Lush, Ultra Dolphins, and the Whatever Nevermind Comp. Magic Bullet restocks, Deathwish restocks, and Lovitt Records restocks. Read below!

  17. Alrighty folks, in the spirit of raising money for 2017 Robo pressing projects I've listed a good amount of TEST PRESSES online on my ebay account. Please see here: Test Presses For Sale Seller account name: secretpnt Yup, I sell a lot of other random things on ebay to make ends meet.
