New TILTS album, three MAN IS THE BASTARD / NOISE t-shirts, rad distro items and more!

Tilts_Cuatro_spread700
We’re thrilled to announce that the crowdfunded sophomore album from St. Louis’ rock quartet TILTS is finally available on vinyl! Cuatro Hombres is 10 rippin tracks of rock and/or roll, with enough heavy spice added in to make it absolutely bombastic. A song premiere for “Touchdowns” happened via Noisey/Vice, and can be heard here.

Like the debut album (which was also re-pressed alongside this new LP), TILTS entirely self-recorded this beast, then had RVA engineer Ian Whalen (RAH BRAHS, TOMBS, LAMB OF GOD) mix the songs from there. James Plotkin has mastered the release specifically for vinyl, and separately for the included high quality digital-download card.

Both Cuatro Hombres and the self-titled debut LP sport woodcut cover art courtesy of Tom Huck, and are each available now in the Robotic Empire – Online Store.

* Listen to “Thomas Jefferson II” or “Touchdowns” from the Cuatro Hombres LP
* Listen to “Hot For Pizza” or “Mexiqo” from the Self-Titled LP

MITBN new shirts aplenty
Beyond that we’ve got a stack of new shirts from MAN IS THE BASTARD / BASTARD NOISE in house, officially Wood-sanctioned. The iconic SKULL is now available as a large black-and-grey on grey shirt, or maroon-and-yellow on orange shirt. For the stoic/bogan types, we’re also scavenged art off the infamous CROSSED OUT split on Slap A Ham, for a classic white-on-black double-sided shirt.

GDxMISFITS700
Further on that classic black-n-white SKULL tip comes a left field one we scored a few of, the limited MISFITS X GRATEFUL DEAD “Steal Yr Skull” shirt. Printed on Gildan soft style shirts, these two other iconic skulls are merged where the Crimson Ghost finally rests within the Dead Head.
