ISIS – Live IV 2×12" OUT NOW! Plus new additions, restock and updates…


OK folks here it is, the long-awaited, much-anticipated Live IV 2×12″ release from ISIS. A variety of live recordings over four years (2001-2005) encompass the seven tracks contained within these two LPs, which are housed in a custom made hand-cranked letterpress gatefold jacket. We had the same fellow who made all the letterpress jackets for their four live CDs to date (Michael Babcock @ Interrobang Letterpress) work his magic on this jacket and the results are beautiful. This release is especially important to me personally, as recordings from the first time I got to see ISIS live are on this release. The recordings on this are different for each location, but overall the flow and quality are excellent for varied live recordings upwards of 7 years old now. Here are the songs included on this release:

“Gentle Time” @ WMBR in Boston, MA
“Glisten” @ The Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA
“CFT” @ CBGB’s in New York, NY
“Celestial” @ CBGB’s in New York, NY
“Improv I (Endless Nameless)” @ The Rotunda in Philadelphia, PA
“False Light” @ The Middle East in Cambridge, MA
“Weight” @ The Troubadour in Los Angeles, CA

A long time in the making, we’re really stoked on how this turned out. 1030 copies total were manufactured of this one-time pressing, in the following quantities:

* 103 on BLACK
* 403 on CHOCOLATE (OPAQUE BROWN)
* 524 on HONEY (TRANSLUCENT BROWN)

The band will have copies at upcoming live dates (and some through their webstore) but other than that, the Robotic Empire Online Store is the only place this release is available. We decided not to sell this one through other stores or distros due to its limited nature, and are limiting each color to one per customer. This is not a pre-order (as we have our copies in-house), but we will not begin shipping these out of here for at least two weeks due to being generally backed-up on current orders. Please be patient, as REPEAT: the ISIS Live IV 2×12″s will not begin shipping until mid/late July. This includes any items you may order along with this release, which will all ship together. Thank you.

To everyone who’s patiently (or impatiently) waiting for us to sell the TORCHE Meanderthal vinyl, we are still waiting on our copies, so the band on the road with BORIS is currently the best place to get it for now. (you can see a few preview photos of the layout over at deadformat.net) We will not be doing pre-orders for this, but we do expect to have our copies within the next few weeks. Please keep an eye on our site and/or sign up for our mailing list to be the first to know about its availability!


Aside from this Robotic Empire label news, our growing Online Store has a whole mess of new items, restocks and generally badass stuff for you this time around. The long-rumored COALESCE DVD is here and well worth the wait. Our dawgs at The Mylene Sheath (who always put out top notch stuff) have some new CD and vinyl releases available from GIANTS, GIFTS FROM ENOLA and more. We’ve also scored an old MAUDLIN OF THE WELL CD, which is the group that existed prior to mutating into KAYO DOT. A killer new band (on upstart label Deep Space) called LSD AND THE SEARCH FOR GOD is recommended for folks who like their shoegazer stuff way drugged out. MAMMOTH GRINDER 12″s are back in stock after flying out in a matter of hours last time, and so are a bunch of Init releases at a newly lowered prices. On the international level, SERPENT THRONE from Modus Operandi and some hard-to-get Nar Shardaa imports are here from Europe, along with crucial cassettes from Utarid that came all the way from Malaysia! Finally, we’ve wrangled a bunch of limited and/or out-of-print stuff from our big bro’s Hydra Head that will most likely sell out before you’re done reading this… so read fast! Here’s the full list:
