MASSIVE Robotic Empire Online Store updates! (new TORCHE LP, lots of rare OOP stuff, etc.)

Hello again, this is most likely the last update from Robotic Empire before our new webstore/website launches. We’ve been busting our asses to get this up and are very excited about the progress, but have a huge update for you here in the meantime. We won’t be doing the “postage paid” thing with the new store (it’s killing us), so this is pretty much your last chance to get stuff from us and not pay shipping costs. The flipside to that is with the new site, various shipping options/vendors will be available. Blah blah blah… more on that to come, and you care about the music and not this BS, so here ya go:


TORCHE just got home from a fucking KILLER tour alongside ISIS, JESU, INTRONAUT and more. We cranked out the fully remixed n’ remastered vinyl reissue of their “Self Titled” album just in time for this monster tour and seriously, this thing turned out incredible. Pushing “full color” printing to its absolute limits, this deluxe LP comes with a glorious gatefold jacket, thick printed inner sleeve and is available on 6 different colors of vinyl. Yep, we made a shitload of colors for this one to match the rainbow of colors on the stunning gatefold jacket, and they turned out pretty much AWESOME. Pressing info won’t be made available for the time being as we’re doing a torturous little experiment here. Yep, we want you to pick up whatever color LP(s) you favor based on color alone (and not pressing quantities). Yeah yeah, we suck… we know. Get over it and enjoy this insanely heavy new mix. Here’s the colors available:

* Translucent Clear w/ White Smoke
* Translucent Yellow w/ White Smoke
* Translucent Green w/ White Smoke
* Translucent Blue w/ White Smoke
* Opaque Brown w/ Yellow/Orange (looks like chocolate icecream w/ peanutbutter)
* Opaque Pink (looks like bubblegum)

( click here for a freakin’ massive version of the above photo)

These are available now in the Robotic Empire Online Store. The CD version of this won’t be available until the summer and no other distros or anybody has this LP either, it’s just available from us and the band. For those unfortunate souls who haven’t heard the mighty TORCHE yet, they’re basically the heaviest band going right now… no lie. Absolutely crushing, they have HUGE sound with the patented “bomb string” assault for added relentlessness. This fully re-mixed and re-mastered version of their debut full-length is absolutely mammoth in sound, with insanely catchy riffs and actual harmonized singing over top it all. Total hessian heaven, and easily one of the most intense bands we’ve ever worked with. This deluxe reissue has an all new bonus track too, which totally fucking kills it. A sample MP3 of the second track “Safe” from this reissue can be heard online here.

So there’s the skinny on that… and we’ll be “nice” and release the pressing info in a couple weeks. A few months down the line the long-awaited “In Return” EP will finally see the light of day. It’s definitely worth the wait as John Baizley’s artwork for it is pretty much incredible and the final mix/master is sounding unbelievably heavy. More info on that will be available as it comes closer to completion… two tracks have been posted online here though.
