ROBOTIC EMPIRE – Online Store Relaunch! New releases & more!


Literally years in the making, this project has been the beast that almost slayed us. Through a label HQ move, one web developer going in rehab, another falling in love, computers and servers crashing, a distribution change and more… the new Robotic Empire Online Store has gone through countless unimaginable hurdles. Seeming absolutely cursed at times, it’s almost unbelievable to us that this thing is actually DONE.

But “done” is both sorta inaccurate and an understatement. Inaccurate in the sense that we’re still only able to accept orders through PayPal (couldn’t get the credit card system ironed out in time for launch), and an understatement in the sense that this Online Store is going to change our entire operation for the better. From your standpoint during ordering, it shouldn’t be terribly different… from our standpoint, we’ll be far more efficient than ever before… which in turn effects how quickly you get your orders!

Long story short, we’re a bit overwhelmed and relieved to finally have this absolutely monstrous project finished and raise a toast to everyone who’s helped make this possible.

All that being said, we encourage you to check out our new Robotic Empire Online Store and let us know what you think… especially if you’re having any problems. We know there are still some bugs and we’re working on a few things still, but if you can’t check out or find some sort of major flaw, we do want to hear about it. A lot of testing has been done, but not on every platform or in every different browser imaginable… so please be patient while we iron out the final creases with our new Online Store!

We had full intention of launching this site with the new CAPSULE 12″+CD album Blue available for the first time, but unfortunately we’ve hit a monstrous manufacturing snag with the CD part of the release so Blue is delayed another week or two at least. The problem with the release is a unique one (some CDs work, others don’t) so we have to wait while the plant figures out exactly what the hell happened. Very frustrating, as this thing turned out beautifully (and leaked already) but we promise to have this available the moment it’s finally, fully ready.

The ISIS Shades Of The Swarm 12xLP Box Set *should* be available for sale later this week, so keep an eye on our new site. Conspiracy has received their copies and the US parties (us and the band) have received samples that look absolutely amazing. Aaron Turner posted some photos of it on his blog if you want to get a sneak preview on this monstrous release. Keep an eye on our site (and for another announcement) for availability, and please do NOT write us about this. Thanks!


OK so upcoming releases aside, we do have some cool stuff available to celebrate the launch of our new Online Store. Since we started this label by releasing PG.99 records, and re-named it the same way (document #11 being the inaugural “Robotic Empire” release)… we figured it was only appropriate to have PG99 usher in our new webstore as well. We’ve re-pressed their landmark document #8 album on vinyl, and for the first time in years re-printed some classic and sought-after t-shirt designs.

The “girl with heart”, “cow head”, “family” and the 2-color “owl” t-shirt designs have all been re-printed, on Cygnus or American Apparel brand t-shirts (very comfy). This is the first time legitimate, band-sanctioned pageninetynine shirts have been printed since the band broke up and we’re beyond stoked to finally make these available again. Click here for all available PG.99 t-shirts.


Another celebratory item we’ve made specifically for this launch is Robotic Empire Sweatpants! That’s right, we made freakin’ sweatpants of the “Blackmetal Sabbath” image… and we’re giving them away! The first 20 people who order over $100 worth of stuff from our new Online Store are entitled to a free pair of sweatpants (if you actually want them). Because we only made 20 of these, we can’t totally guarantee what sizes will be available, but if you order over $100 worth of stuff just add a note to your order during checkout (there is a “notes” box) letting us know what size you wear. These are available on a first come, first serve basis!

Along with all of the Online Store renovations, we finally have a somewhat functional website again ( www.roboticempire.com ). It’s pretty stripped down to say the least, but the discography page is up to date and took forever to compile.

Major thanks are due to Josh Sisk of McCarthyism/Logjamming for working with us to make this new store possible… there’s no way this would exist without him. His label has put a lot of earth-shattering jawns as well, we recommend you check them out here.

Thank you for reading through all of this, and for checking out our new Robotic Empire Online Store. Peace!
