Robotic Empire BLACK FRIDAY sale: 25% off ENTIRE store + new releases, 150 deep discounted items, found stuff and more!


The biggest sale we’ve ever offered? Hopefully this doesn’t crash our site!

Fully “Black Friday” indulgent, we’re going berzerk by offering 25% off ALL orders over 25 bucks (using the coupon code “ROBOBLACKFRIDAY” at checkout) PLUS throwing in a free record with every discounted order! Beyond that, we’re giving away free shirts to all $50+ orders, have listed 150+ items on a heavy discount and nearly 20 newly-added/lost/found/and/or exclusive items to offer up as well. In other words, it’s massive over at the Robotic Empire – Online Store.


The full lists of discounted and new/re-upped titles can be found below, but we also want to highlight a few things of note. The cult fave Grateful Dead x Misfits Steal Yr Skull image returns, now emblazoned into a soft enamel pin! With raised dyed-black metal contrasting the brilliant white enamel, this 1.25″ circular pin is limited to just 100 pieces. If it’s anything like the t-shirts were, we imagine the pins we scored will go quickly. Available now in our Online Store.


Robo-related, a distributor return of our Whatever Nevermind Nirvana tribute LP has surfaced, with copies of the Record Store Day edition of that sold-out title now briefly available in our Online Store. 12″+7″ both on translucent blue vinyl with an oversized poster, this second in our full-album Nirvana tribute series features reworked renditions of the entire Nevermind album by YOUNG WIDOWS, TORCHE, KYLESA, CAVE IN, BORIS, LA DISPUTE, WHITE REAPER, CIRCA SURVIVE, TOUCHE AMORE, WRONG, PYGMY LUSH, NOTHING and THOU, in that order.


Fairly-Robo-related is the recent import of HENRYSPENNCER‘s lastest album, Saturn, for which Robotic Empire released the digital version of. Two years in the making, France’s Henryspenncer have crafted a dense album with Saturn, torn between cosmos, desert and concrete; both narrative and abstract, gloomy and luminous, the psych/folk/drone mix contained within is simply incredible. An album teaser has been launched on our YouTube channel over yonder.

Recorded at Holy Mountain Studios in London, engineered and mixed by Misha Hering, mastered by James Plotkin and with artwork by Valentin Féron, Saturn is now available as an import LP in our Online Store, and via all major digital outlets:

Great Online Store Update (Alphabet Sale Continues!)


First off, a big thank you to everyone who sent some rain our way the other week when we desperately needed it! The day following the Robotic update we had 2 lovely days of steady, soaking rain, a day of clear skies and another full day of rain. The forest fires in our area are being tamed and we no longer have ash falling from the sky. Hooray! Ya’ll rule, thanks for your thoughts, and we can’t be more grateful to all the firefighters out there doing an intense job of keeping people and their homes safe! We have much to be thankful for!

Well the Grateful Dead Misfits shirts are practically sold out and folks have been picking up the new Wrong Threads along with our new Robotic Empire Shirt. Glad we could provide everyone with some rad clothing for the upcoming fall season and if you haven’t checked out those new designs yet, get on it!

This week we have a hardy little update for you with some vinyl that traveled all the way from Germany. A double LP from Olympia’s BROKEN WATER, the FUNERARY album on Vendetta and a recent WHITEHORSE album. A solid package arrived from Gilead Media that included the new FALSE record, PALE CHALICE and some other wonderful goodies. Apologies are required because we suddenly realized we launched the new CLOUD RATQliphoth album the previous week but an oversight on our part caused the album to be unavailable for purchase on the site. That’s been fixed so if you’re interested in checking out that new one please head on over to the Robotic Empire Online Store . Last but not least, we’ve got a great selection of BASTARD NOISE / MAN IS THE BASTARD albums in the store now thanks to Deep Six records. We’ll be excited to talk more about Robotic Empire’s collaboration with Eric Wood soon!

As promised, we’re continuing the Alphabet Sale with some great music from the D-H sections of our distro shelves. You can find those and all other sale items here: Sales! Please check the full lists below for everything we’ve mentioned above. Thanks everyone and have a great September season.

New t-shirts from WRONG, Robo & more, plus a bigass badass distro update!

Lot’s of heavy hitters for the update that will close out the month of August, including some old rarities and warehouse finds. There’s a killer 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 and the recently re-vamped Holy Sons (now feat. members of Ancient Sky), 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 2×12″s. Glance through the mega restocks from the mighty Deathwish Inc 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 w/ Black Tusk and Lazer/Wulf! Make sure you get out to see these bludgeoning fellows or plan on royal regrets… A repress of their 4 song 12″ EP on Robotic Empire is currently finishing up at the plant and we should have them in house mid September.

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 warrior ladies? What if that 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 Robo shirts generally go quick and we rarely 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 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 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 (see the smokey sunset photos below). 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 obscure/rare 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….  Full lists below!

The first 15 digital releases from The Archivist launched less than 6 months ago as a method to make widespread availability of influential and inspiring music that may not otherwise reach fans worldwide. This included material from City of Caterpillar, Forcefedglass (mem Converge), Idolands (mem Daughters), Joshua Fit For Battle, Majority Rule, Riddle of Steel (pre-Tilts/Torche), Transistor Transistor, Welcome The Plague Year and Wraith (Capsule/Wrong/ex-Kylesa member Eric Hernandez side project).

The initial announcement and full list of those releases along with all relevant links can be found here:

Also a great new release from North Carolina band BASK which we’ve been jammin’ pretty hard lately, check them out if you enjoy bands along the lines of ANCIENT SKY & ACROSS TUNDRAS. Worth re-highlighting too is the bangin’ new ANCIENT SKYMosaic tapes in the online store NOW: Mosaic Tapes!

Hope everyone got the time they needed to take advantage of the T-shirt sale we ran last month, thanks for picking up some new threads and helping us make room for new designs coming into the shop in the next few weeks.
