    You guys rule!

    FYI, CAVE IN's "The Sacrifice Poles" has essentially sold out on vinyl, just in time for the digital release to go live on iTunes, Bandcamp and Spotify today:
    https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/the-sacrifice-poles/id852752844?uo=4
    http://roboticempire.bandcamp.com/album/cave-in-the-sacrifice-poles
    http://open.spotify.com/album/3s2mjka6OBzkJtSISAwv7d
    A very interesting window into one of rock music's most fascinating transitions, "The Sacrifice Poles" shows a completely different side of CAVE IN's musical landscape and is well worth exploring for both casual and diehard fans.

    We are thrilled to announce the availability of CAVE IN's elusive mid-period album The Sacrifice Poles, which Robodog Records originally released on CD back in 2001. Comprised entirely of instrumental 4-track recordings from 1998-2000, The Sacrifice Poles sees CAVE IN heavily experimenting during writing blocks between Until Your Heart Stops and Jupiter. Largely unlike either release due to the creative process, the album remains unmistakably "Cave In" and is a surprising window into one of rock music's most amazing transitions.
     
    Aside from "Brain Candle Waltz", all material has stayed exclusive to this release and we are thrilled to finally present it on vinyl, over 13 years later. Aaron Turner's stark original artwork and layout has been meticulously re-created from archived artist proofs, for a 5-color silkscreened LP jacket printed by brethren at Broken Press.
     
    All audio for both vinyl and digital formats has been separately remastered by James Plotkin in 2014 for a warmer, fuller sound. Pressed in an edition of 500 copies, 300 were made on translucent blue vinyl and 200 on black vinyl. All LP copies include a high quality digital download.
     
    This officially drops on May 27th but we're too damn stoked and have put up our mailorder copies now! iTunes and other digital services will have this on the 27th as well.

    As for restocks, it's much of the same plus the two latest long players from CONVERGE, GRAILS self-released reissues of their two first LPs (first released by Robo/Neurot), LITURGY's polarizing Aesthetica 2LP, an expanded TRAP THEM LP and a trifecta of double-LPs from YEAR OF NO LIGHT.

    Wow so Record Store Day was awesome! Lots of folks picked up the Nirvana tribute LP - and of course, inevitably, copies are now showing up on ebay as well. No major surprise there, but the volume and silly prices the release is commanding have initiated a bump up in the need for mailorder copies ASAP. We've been given the green-light to go ahead and sell the standard version, so black vinyl and yellow vinyl versions are now available to mailorder.
     
    * Various Artists - "In Utero, In Tribute, In Entirety" vinyl LP in the Robotic Empire - Online Store
     
    All copies of this release include a high-quality digital download, and please note, the standard edition does not include the large poster found in the Record Store Day version.
     
    Beyond that, the release is now available digitally as well via iTunes, Spotify and Bandcamp.
     
    So there we are. This release is officially out there, the reception has been amazing and we're so happy to have our 100th release finally wrapped up almost exactly 15 years since this crazy label started! Robo 001 dropped on April 22nd, 1999 - it has been an very unexpected and wild ride, thank you to each and every person who has ever taken interest in one of our releases. Much love!!

    roboticempire got a reaction from nothingnatural in Robotic Empire + TILTS team up for Kickstarter Campaign (Again) ex-RIDDLE OF STEEL / current TORCHE   
    St. Louis quartet TILTS and Robotic Empire have joined forces for a second Kickstarter campaign, appropriately to launch TILTS’ sophomore album, Cuatro Hombres:

     

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/roboticempire/tilts-second-album-release-on-vinyl-digital-and-wa

     

    Like the previous collaboration two year ago, the band and label are creating an engaging album pre-order via Kickstarter, with “pledge rewards” ranging from simple (digital download, vinyl LP, t-shirt) to more involved (custom test press LP, live performance + delicious meal provided by the band in your town).

     

    An accompanying video has been unveiled including new music from the album and foolish footage of the band in the studio:

     



     

    Self-recorded by TILTS drummer Ken McCray in their own “Marmadook” home studios, the 10-track album is once again with Ian Whalen (RAH BRAHS, TOMBS, LAMB OF GOD) at his Richmond, Virginia studio for mixing. James Plotkin is also on deck again for mastering duties, with Tom Huck returning with detailed woodcut cover art.

     

    Although most of the elements are in place, the band and label are asking fans to pledge so the mix/master can get wrapped up, and the album put into production in time for TILTS’ summer tour in late June/early July.

     

    Several exclusive items are available only via this Kickstarter campaign, including the hand-made DILTS release, a collection of rare demos, studio alternates, rehearsal demos and other off-the-cuff musical meanderings.

     

    The Kickstarter campaign is also the first place to hear the (rough mix/unmastered) NEW song off the album, “Tiltanium Falcon”:

     

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/roboticempire/tilts-second-album-release-on-vinyl-digital-and-wa

     

    Along with McCray on drums, TILTS is comprised of guitarist Andy White, bassist Shawn Hart and guitarist/vocalist Andrew Elstner, who's also a member of the active heavy outfit TORCHE. Elstner had the following to say:

     

    "We couldn't be more excited for this record. It's been an unbelievably crazy couple of years since the last release and the forces of darkness can get pretty intense, so it's great to get back to having a blast and doing what we love. These songs rule, my bandmates rule and having a good time all the time still rules."

     

    Robotic Empire label owner Andy Low also comments:

     

    “The first Kickstarter campaing we ran with these guys two years ago was a lot of fun. Despite a somewhat taboo nature in the vinyl/production/label world, Kickstarter can actually be used in a cool way for creating a more elaborate pre-order process. We hope to involve pledgers by having polls for voting on some production elements of the release, and the “custom test press” pledge reward was a big hit last time with some amazing and hilarious requests that came to light. Ultimately, we’re just hoping to get a badass LP into production from our dudes TILTS and feel this is the right avenue to do so.”

     

    This Kickstarter campaign is now live, and is set to run until Sunday, May 4th at 8pm EST:
