New (semi-exclusive) THOU/HAARP split 7", holiday promo deal, lots of discounts, etc!


Well “tis the season” for crazed holiday madness. We sorta have a love/hate relationship with this pandemonium, and to keep a lil’ tradition going here we’re offering up another “Special Holiday Promotion” in the Robotic Empire – Online Store… kinda like last year’s, but a little better. Basically anyone who orders $50 worth or more of stuff can get 10% off and a free “Destroyer Zombies” Robotic Empire t-shirt too. Just let us know you’re preferred size and color (comes on a black or white t-shirt) and we’ll hook it up as long as the supplies last.

HOLIDAZE is the coupon code to get 10% off all $50+ orders, and here’s how you redeem it: Add stuff to your cart and check out as usual. After you sign in with PayPal, you get taken back to the Robo Store and THERE is where you enter in the HOLIDAZE redemption code, and right below in the “notes” box is where you should put in your preferred size and color for the free “Destroyer Zombies” t-shirt.

Also on the same topic: SHIPPING IN TIME FOR XMAS: People can kinda lose their heads a bit this time of year so we’re gonna spell it out plain and clear:

* All “media mail” orders placed after December 7th CANNOT be guaranteed to arrive before the 25th. This method can already be slow during normal shipping times, so yeah, Dec 7th is the cutoff date for “media mail”.

* Otherwise either “Priority Mail” or “UPS Ground” are the best way to go. Those both move much faster than other shipping methods, so please chose this if you are trying to get something quickly.

* ALSO: please tack on a few extra days for us to pack & ship your orders! This time of year gets especially hectic and due to the relatively small size of our operation, it can get a little backed up. Please allow a few extra days beyond just standard shipping time.

* THANK YOU! That’s probably the most important thing of all to note. We really appreciate you ordering from us for your friends/family/self/etc, so we gotta throw that in there. Just have to be sorta blunt about the other stuff too though so there’s no confusion.

OK gabba gabba gabba, blah blah…yammerin on and on. Here’s the cool part of the update: new stuff!


Guess what: a new THOU release! Looks like we’re gonna be one of the main distributors for the new Richmond upstart label Mirror Universe, and they’ve kicked things off right with a brutal (and extensive) split 7″ from bayou brothers THOU and HAARP. Baton Rouge vs New Orleans, and man alive are these some burly jams! The content of this 7″ is pretty much outlandish: classic apocalyptic woodcut imagery, a huge poster insert, a bigass booklet stapled to the interior of the jacket, and cool orangey red “fire” colored vinyl too. (click here for a larger photo of the whole shebang) Not a bad way to do things at all, and a very appropriate teamup of some of the heaviest bands coming out of the south right now. Pretty stoked on this jammer!
