Robotic Empire completes Nirvana tribute trifecta with “Doused In Mud, Soaked In Bleach”

Doused-In-Mud-400web

We are extremely stoked to announce our third Nirvana tribute LP, “Doused In Mud, Soaked In Bleach”, completing a trifecta of homages to the legendary band’s official studio albums.

The Hall of Famer’s debut LP “Bleach” is covered in full, start to finish, by a diverse range of independent/alternative artists including Basement, Beach Slang, Big Hush, Circa Survive, Daughters, Defeater, The Fall of Troy, Mean Jeans, Rob Crow’s Gloomy Place, The Saddest Landscape, This Will Destroy You, Thou and Young Widows.

Appropriately reflecting Nirvana‘s rawest studio album alongside a full-circle nod to our root genres, this is arguably the darkest, heaviest release in the tribute series. A tasteful re-envision of these classic songs sees all 13 “Bleach” tracks run through the bands’ creative engines, putting an intense new perspective on these 25+ year old songs.

Today, Circa Survive premiers their cover of ‘Love Buzz’, originally written/performed by Shocking Blue but made infamous by Nirvana. Alternative Press is streaming the song now along with a brief Q&A with the band:

http://www.altpress.com/features/entry/circa_survive_cover_nirvanas_love_buzz_on_nirvana_tribute_album_exclusive

On their method of covering a cover, Brendan Ekstrom from Circa Survive says:

“It’s hard to explain but in my mind ‘Love Buzz’ is a Nirvana song. It’s one of the first songs that I obsessed over when I was 14 years old and was learning to play guitar. At the time, I thought Nirvana wrote it. It just fit so well with the rest of the record…. I didn’t need to listen to the originals when the band who was making me believe in music had their own amazing version for me to listen to.”

Circa Survive is one of three reoccurring bands who’ve contributed to all of the Nirvana tribute LPs Robotic Empire’s issued, including 2015’s “Whatever Nevermind” and 2014’s “In Utero: In Tribute”. Like both previous tributes, the vinyl edition of “Doused In Mud, Soaked In Bleach” is being released in conjunction with Record Store Day, occurring on Saturday, April 16th this year.

The Record Store Day edition exclusive metallic-silver vinyl color and includes a bonus oversized poster, with standard editions (sans poster) to follow RSD via our Online Store. All copies include a high-quality digital download of the full release.

The album will also be released digitally across all major platforms on Saturday, April 16th, with iTunes and Bandcamp pre-orders live now, including an immediate download of the Circa Survive cover for pre-orderers:

Robotic Empire March New Releases! Hollow Sunshine & Creation Is Crucifixion

We’ve got two new releases for you guys this lovely March 11th and first off is the 4 song EP from California duo Hollow Sunshine. Presented as a deluxe cassette release that includes a 5×5 cloth patch and a black and white enamel pin, showcasing Reuben Sawyer’s artwork on both. Clear cassettes with printed J-cards. Limited to 100 copies.

Versatile visual artist (of key work for Destruction Unit, Chelsea Wolfe + Deafheaven) and multi-instrumentalist Reuben Sawyer along with vocalist Morgan Enos follow two well received LPs and a slew of EPs with further- reaching explorations of Hollow Sunshine’s drone/darkwave/pop amalgam. “Burning” is the new EP from the increasingly prolific California duo, and while the previous Hollow Sunshine work explored the landscapes of 1990s atmospheric pop and sludge, “Burning” pushes deeper into both the past and the future. The four new songs feel ancient and coated in precious metals, as Sawyer and Enos tap into the muses of Florian Fricke, Alice Coltrane and Bill Fay to form their most mature and realized release yet. Fans of contemporary, heavy/pop-influenced outfits Jesu and Hum will also rejoice in the beautiful contrast of Sawyer’s downtuned guitar mass with Enos’ subdued, haunting vocal melodies as the duo deftly wade through songs of helplessness, departure and relief.

Cassettes are up for sale now in the online store! Head on over and have a look – Hollow Sunshine Cassette/Pin/Patch package!

Next up is the Creation Is Crucifixion 2×12″ that we took pre-orders for last month. These are in house and have been shipping out to all those folks who placed their early orders. The release date is officially today!

Pittsburgh tech-metal hactivists Creation is Crucifixion emulate Lazarus with a double-LP collecting their last recordings along with an impressive live set. Longrunning metal/hardcore website Lambgoat is now streaming the full Antenna Builder + Rerecorded Splits / Live In Geneva album!

Lambgoat Stream

The long-rumored Antenna Builder track, the ‘final’ recording by Creation is Crucifixion’s last active lineup is a 9-minute opus that brilliantly merges CIC’s heavy technical metal along with the noise passages the band became renown for. As one of the highest-fidelity recordings from the band’s extensive output, the lineup’s similarly oppressive Rerecorded Splits material fleshes out the first 12″ in the gatefold double-LP package

Accompanying the studio-recordings 12″ is a live LP from a classic CIC’s set from on their last European tour, captured live in Geneva during May of the millennial year. These 15+ year recordings showcase tracks from across the band’s catalog of material, with a higher clarity than some of their raw studio recordings.

Separately mastered by James Plotkin for both vinyl and digital formats, the Antenna Builder + Rerecorded Splits / Live In Geneva 2xLP comes housed in a stark black and white gatefold jacket with gold ink overlaid. A digital download of the full release is included.

Following a reunited appearance at 2015’s King pf the Monsters Festival, CIC guitarist Adam MacGregor said the following regarding the band’s future:

“It’s now a radically different world than when Creation is Crucifixion launched in 1997, and individually we’re much different people than we were during the band’s run. But one thing hasn’t changed, and that’s our love of writing and playing music that challenges both ourselves and the listener. The new material we are working on aims to do both. With members divided geographically by wide swaths now, we’ve been exploring some different approaches to composition, and rethinking what a “band” really can be. Whatever we come up with, the goal is to respect our past work without simply rehashing it. And if it meets that double bottom line, then we’ll be excited to share. Expect at least one live appearance in 2016 (TBA) in support of “Antenna Builder” and possibly more to come.”

If you’ve not picked up a vinyl copy yet head on over to the Robotic Empire Online Store and take your pick of Black or Gold vinyl.

Got a nice little distro update for everyone this week! Very pleased to have the Expo 70 – Kinetic Tones album in stock, this one has been on constant rotation lately so be sure to grab up a copy. Newest album from Jessica 93 came in from Music Fear Satan Records and I suggest you give them a listen if you’ve not yet. We’ve got their previous two albums in stock also in case you’re looking for more. Grabbed up some Monarch releases and some Year of No Light restocks from MFS too.

Behind the Mountain Records in Poland sent us some brutal music from their catalog and some come with DVDs like the Massgrave/Suffering Mind 9″ and the Rwake 12″. The first book we’ve ever carried is available now in the shop, a great read if you’re a Dan Lilker fan. Great photos, massive book, totally worth the cash! Lot’s of Self Defense Family tunes in stock now from Iron Pier Records in addition to some Wild Moth releases and last but not least is the newest 7″ from Seattle band Posse . These are some great songs and a gorgeous little 7″, check them out.

As far as Robo news goes, all Isis – Celestial 2×12″ orders have been shipping out in a timely manner and we’re expecting to get word any day about the arrival of the Creation is Crucifixion 2×12″ that we’ve been taking pre-orders for. Once we hear more we’ll make sure to post about it on our Instagram – @roboticempire and Facebook accounts. As soon as they arrive they’ll begin shipping out, thanks for all those orders!

Back in stock in limited quantities is Floor’s – Self Titled 12″+7″ on CLEAR COLORED VINYL along with some Black copies too. Once these are gone they are gone for quite some time, no plans for a repress on that one any time soon. Don’t miss out. We requested the last copies of Thou’s – Baton Rouge 12″s back from our distributor and just like Floor, once those are sold out there are no plans for a repress anytime soon.

Robotic Empire 2016 New Year Update!

Happy New Year Everyone! Hoping your year end festivities were a blast and 2016 is starting off on a good foot!

Well, after our massive Black Friday sale we hunkered down and got to work restocking the Robotic Empire – Online Store with some serious goodies for you to start off the new year with. As you’ll see below on the full lists, we’ve got some badass cassettes to offer you from Broken Press in Seattle who is now releasing some tapes that come with silk screened J-Cards (of course!). A Terminal Fuzz Terror tape is amongst those which we are extremely stoked on! Meridian Arc is certainly worth checking out too, it’s a side project from Andy of TFT. And if you’ve not picked up the Terminal Fuzz Terror album we released last year for them, we still have a handful of the deluxe versions available here: Deluxe TFT! These come with a lovely embroidered patch and silk screened tote bag.

We picked up a hefty amount of items from Magic Bullet Records and Deathwish including the new Cult Leader, Loma Prieta, and lots of 7″s this time around. We usually don’t carry too many of those little dudes anymore so if you’re a 7″ collector now’s the time to stock up! An import album by Year of No Light is up for sale in the shop too but we only have a few so grab one if you’re keen. There are deluxe reissues of Neurosis albums at a good price, these are mega heavy, look and sound amazing! And last but not least, if you are into the band Low we highly recommend you pick up the PYRIT album we brought in from Bookmaker records in France, who also released the Henryspenncer album we did digital for and have vinyl for in the shop. This is seriously making the best of 2015 list for us. Can’t stop jamming it, only have a few, check it out! Our restock list is nothing to shake a stick at, most of these have been flying out the door as fast as we can stock them so we picked up more as soon as we possibly could.

For our digital download folks, we’re running a sale on our BANDCAMP PAGE for the rest of the month of January. All albums are 20% off with the coupon code “NEWYEARNEWME”. Go grab some albums on the cheap! Great way to check out something new, there’s tons of great music on there, we know you’ll find something to give a listen to.

Now yes, we know things have been quiet on the new release front for Robotic Empire but rest assured 2016 is going to pack a punch. So many releases planned, lots going into production as we speak and a few about to finish up soon. Lots of folks have been asking about the Creation is Crucifixion release and yes, it’s still happening and it’s currently in production. Looking at an early spring release date for that one. Thanks for all the comments and questions on it, we’re really impatient to get this one out there for you guys!


Another release we’re very excited and honored to be a part of is the newest Man Is the Bastard Noise album titled “The Honesty Shop”. This thing is going to be blowing minds all year long and just wait till you see the gorgeous packaging we have in store for you on this one. Deluxe versions will be available too that include special goodies but will only be for mailorder through us. This is a limited pressing and we hope to have this one ready as winter comes to a close. In our excitement over this, we’re putting all the MITB T-Shirts on sale for the rest of the month. 3 designs to choose from, if you’re amped on the upcoming release, show some support and pick up a shirt!

Alright, enough talk, here’s the full list below with new items to the shop and restocks too. Thanks everyone for all the support you sent our way in 2015 and we are very excited to be bringing you some badass releases in 2016!! You guys RULE!

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:
