Bullshit from a longrunning record label run by a small group of weirdos.


Happy New Year everyone, we are stoked to kick things off with a newly re-vamped Robotic Empire - Online Store including a new release, a mountain of crazy sales, a special test press and more. Let’s get into it:


First and foremost, FLOOR's seminal Self-Titled album has been reissued as a standalone 12” with a bonus 7” containing outtakes from the album session. Originally assembled as part of the extensive Below & Beyond box set discography a few years back, we are supremely stoked for one of our top favorite albums of all time to be made available once again in a morewidespread manner.

Keeping in mind the original vision for the LP along with appropriate upgrades to reflect the expanded nature of this killer release, FLOOR's landmark album (to date) has been reissued in a gatefold jacket with silver color added throughout, and custom glue-pocket to house the bonus 7”. A high quality digital download is now also included, containing the full album and bonus tracks.


To add icing to the cake for like-minded diehard fans, we’ve worked with the band and our bros at Decibel Magazine to craft a limited deluxe “Hall of Fame” edition of the album with further printwork (including full printed lyrics for the first time ever), some rare and never before seen photos, a full transcription of the Decibel feature on the album, plus a cloth patch and weatherproof sticker.

We’ve done our best to make this reissue the definitive version of what we consider to be an incredibly groundbreaking album. For those unfamiliar with FLOOR's first proper full-length release, it is a magnificent merging of the best elements from “heavy” to “catchy”. With the monumental “bomb string” in tow, an unlikely but amazing combination of incredibly deep-tuned doom rock, sing-along harmonized vocals, a bombastic rhythm and pop sensibilities all set FLOOR apart from contemporaries. Nothing before or after has truly compared to this brilliant monolith of a thunderous-yet-soaring doom sludge pop rock hybrid. Laying the bedrock for what would come years later with TORCHE, the self-titled FLOOR album was and is the stuff of legends.

You can preview the full album via our Bandcamp

Thankfully the posthumous legacy created by their massive recordings has revived activity into the band, and Robotic Empire is honored to finally present this amazing release for availability once again.

A limited run of 500 were made as the deluxe “Hall of Fame” edition on silver/blue vinyl, and for the standard edition 300 were pressed on clear vinyl, 300 on electric blue and 900 on black.

With a stunning new album not far from release, it’s been amazing to see FLOOR rise again and we’re beyond thrilled to make the S/T album available again. The deluxe edition is $19.99 and the standard edition $16.99 

* FLOOR - Self-Titled Reissue 12”+7” is available now in the Robotic Empire - Online Store

Semi-related via guitar player/vocalist Steve Brooks’ continuation of innovative heavy and catchy music, we’ve also dropped the In Return 10”+CD to $11.99 (until the end of January only) to commeorate all this awesome activity. This includes all color varieties so if you’ve not picked up this recent repress, now’s the time:

* TORCHE - In Return 10”+CD (and way more) are available now in the Robotic Empire - Online Store


One more catalog Robo release that we’re happy to have available again, is the overrun copies of PG.99's Singles 12” that we pressed a few years back to coincide with their reunion shows. We had some extra vinyl and jackets, but no printed innersleeves… but thanks to our brethren at Seattle’s Broken Press, we’ve got some super nice double-sided silkscreened inserts to round out the release. About 70 copies were run in this manner, and include a small silkscreened “Girl With Heart” image as well.

* PAGENINETYNINE - Singles LP is now available in the Robotic Empire - Online Store

So while we’re seriously stoked to have those cool new offerings for the re-launch of our Online Store, the true meat of this update lies in the absolutely stupidly hugely unwieldy MASSIVE sale we’ve now got going on the site.

Although our store is continuously being updated (forgive some wonky bits), along with altering the store in multiple ways over the past month we’ve done a lengthy inventory overhaul of all the distro items we carry. Some gems were found, a few duds, a bunch of rare old stuff, a few weird ones and just generally a LOT of items we didn’t realise were kicking around have now been added back to the site, typically in very small quantities.

Most of the old stuff has been CRAZY discounted (including about 50 different LPs priced at 99 cents?!) to get it out of our doors and into your homes so peep this mega list of 420 sale items now up on our Online Store:

GAWWDAYUM! We’ve run some crazy sales in the past, but this one may take the cake. Get em while they’re hot, and/or if you’re a fan of other formats we’re also offering up the following equally insane sales:

* All cassettes (aside from a few new Robo releases) are $2.99 until the end of January - this excludes the bangin new MUTOID MAN tape we dropped, and the recent THOU tape re-presses

* All 7”s are $2.99 until the end of January - excluding a small handful of items we can’t discount that much, the vast majority of 7”s we carry are dirt cheap (classic punx price) for TWO WEEKS ONLY!

* ALL CDs ARE 99 CENTS - we are blowing out the distro CDs, likely for good. Do you have a car stereo? LOAD UP. Do you have an iPod/iPhone/MyPad/whatever? RIPS AHOY. Are you killeroldschool and just crank CDs hard? LUCKY DAY. This sale runs until the our CDs stocks are gone… PEACE OUT!

So that’s it. We’ve lost our minds. Honestly though, we have a seriously small area for the boatloads of stock we have and need to clear it out to make room for a very busy 2014. Although formal announcements have yet to be made (so this is the sneaky earlybird heads up), beyond the aforementioned FLOOR reissue, we also need to drum up cash for the absolutely killer new releases on deck from the likes of THOU, TILTS, JAKOB, plus *hopefully
* JESU's Ascension 2LP, ideally some PYGMYLUSH stuff, and the long long long awaited vinyl pressing of THE SACRIFICE POLES album. The Nirvana tribute comp is actually at the mastering stage now (!!), and once our artwork is wrapped up the longest running project the label’s dragged feet on will finnnalllllly see the light of day. Which is cool, because it really did turn out awesome in the end - such a mission to do it all legit though.

Looks like we’re rambling, so time to go. Please buy something from our revamped Online Store. We celebrate our 15th anniversary as a “record label” in April of this year and it’s honestly kinda crazy sometimes that we’re still in operation, given how truly weird our business operates and what’s happened to most of our peers.

We truly rely on our amazing mailorder followers, so a genuine and heartfelt thank you is due to everyone who’s supported us in the past - and a thank you in advance for those picking something up now.

We look forward to a busy and awesome year, much love from Team Robo!

Robotic Empire is excited to announce that pre-orders are now available for ALPACA's debut album, both physically and digitally. Set for release October 1st, Demimonde is the first release from ALPACA and explores new ground for both the label and band members involved.

Comprised of vocalist/guitar player Justin Nuckols and multi-instumentalist Allen Blickle, Demimonde was recorded over a five year period across locations in New York and the members’ native Virginia. Much of ALPACA's material was initially created throughout arduous tour schedules for BARONESS, the accomplished hard rock band for which Blickle drummed.

The dance, pop, and melody-driven compositions Blickle crafted for ALPACA juxtapose with Nuckols’ darker, groove-focused, and harmonic vocal explorations.

This musical collaboration from two ex-step-brothers began in the late ’90s while high school students in the small Appalachian town of Lexington, VA. After separate nomadic wanderings, Nuckols and Blickle both wound up in Brooklyn, NY in 2007.

ALPACA intermittently recorded material between BARONESS' tour activities, finally hunkering down in the winter of 2012-2013 to expand their mutual visions and perfect mixes, ultimately finishing a body of work many years in the making.

To compliment the level of detail the music received, the vinyl edition of Demimonde comes housed in a five-color gatefold LP jacket with added spot-gloss finish. Accordingly elaborate color vinyl is available , and joined by a high-quality digital download. 800 color vinyl LPs were pressed + 200 black vinyl, and a CD edition is also available.

We’re absolutely thrilled to finally have this album just about done. It’s been a long ass time since Allen first played us some proto-Paca jams in the old Robo HQ and we’re truly excited to help an old friend with a fantastic debut release.

Beyond that cool label activity, we’ve got a powerhouse of righteous new items in the Robotic Empire - Online Store. First off, we have to note the absolutely insane multi-vinyl releases from THE OCEAN! Pelagic Records really went beyond the standards of “norm” with those releases, plus more GOD IS AN ASTRONAUT on vinyl for the die-hards. Also on the rad-import-tip is the pseudo-sanctioned CURSED “bootleg” LPs, which are just what you’d hope and expect. Semi-ALPACA-related is the badass old BARONESS / UNPERSONS split LP newly available on red color vinyl, and we also got the new LP from THE BODY, also released by At A Loss. Label-favorite FOREST SWORDS is finally here, give that one a chance. Some rippers (CAPTIVE BOLT, CIVILIZATION, EYC) from the newly revived Dead Tank label/distro are now in stock, plus a slew of tapes from Like Young. Appropriately horrific and terrifying is the ungodly COFFINS Colossal Hole 10” for the true freaks. Also good to see To Live A Lie cranking out filthy high-quality grind (ASSHOLE PARADE, MEHKAGO NT) as always. Good stuff abound, here’s the full list:

Awesome ALPACA interview+song premiere via MTV Hive: “…the sound is so different from Baroness. Do you think people will be surprised or taken aback by the change? For sure. I hope they are. That’s sort of what it’s all about — jumping and taking chances. Doing something you love, you know. This is the type of music that I’ve always be into. I’ve always been into pop music since I was a kid, and then I got into, like, punk rock and metal early on, but I always had that side. When you start producing music you kind of like put your limbs out and try a bunch of different things and I think how this record kind of took shape was all these different influences. It’s from the heart and it feels good.” READ MORE / LISTEN TO ‘Ease Your Gaze’: http://www.mtvhive.com/2013/09/12/after-a-harrowing-bus-crash-baronesss-allen-blickles-rises-from-the-ashes-with-alpaca/

We are stoked to announce that Los Angeles / Brooklyn duo ALPACA will release their debut album  Demimonde via Robotic Empire this October! Comprised of vocalist Justin Nuckols and multi-instrumentalist Allen Blickle, Demimonde was recorded across locations in New York and the members’ native Virginia.  Much of ALPACA's material was initially created during arduous tour schedules for BARONESS, the accomplished hard rock band for which Blickle drummed. The dance, pop, and melody-driven compositions Blickle crafted for ALPACA juxtapose with Nuckols’ darker, groove-focused, and harmonic vocal explorations.  Blickle and Nuckols (who also are ex-step brothers) hunkered down in Brooklyn during the winter of 2012-2013, expanding their mutual visions and perfecting mixes, ultimately finishing a body of work many years in the making. The end-result is a stunning debut, which we are thrilled to release to the world both on vinyl and digitally. Demimonde will be available in October, and a teaser trailer can be viewed on ALPACA's YouTube channel:   We’ve known Allen a long time, and it’s been amazing to watch this longrunning project gradually develop from self-recordings into a full-fledged, killer album. Majorly looking forward to releasing this come October, with lots of cool previews on deck in the weeks to come. ALPACA is pretty switched on with the electronic omnipresence, so if you’re also inclined: Follow and Like and Share and all that good stuff!  * http://www.facebook.com/alpacabeats * http://www.youtube.com/alpacabeats * http://www.twitter.com/alpacabeats * http://www.instagram.com/alpacabeats Beyond this exciting addition to team Robo, we’ve got an unreasonably awesome update to the Robotic Empire - Online Store this time around, with a veritable stackload of killer new stuff and restocks!

We are now taking pre-orders for ISIS' first album, Celestial, which Robotic Empire has just reissued on 2xLP with nice packaging. The manufacturing is all done, and with a July 9th release date we hope to have it in your hands just around that time. You can pick it up now in the Robotic Empire - Online Store.  For those unfamiliar with the release, the now-classic debut full-length Celestial highlights ISIS' roots in metal and hardcore while displaying the experimentation with post-rock and ambience that they would become best known for. Accurately described by Decibel Magazine as “a transitional record between the band's early work and the post-metal benchmarks such as Oceanic … the elements of the greatness are present, but rawer, more direct.” Initially surfacing in 2000 following the larvael stages of formative EPs, Celestial was ISIS’ first release with the (then newly-solidified) lineup that would last them through a decade until disbanding in 2010.  With chugging sludge, expansive doom, droning metal and a nuanced yet vital use of keys, samples and noise,  Celestial at times borders on completely devastation, but gracefully shifts into passages of sheer beauty. ISIS came into their own with Celestial, mastering the flow of sonic dynamics between “loud” and “quiet”, smoothly bringing sparse elements into an otherwise oppressively heavy sound.  This unique and varied album of nearly an hour’s length was their first captured by engineer Matt Bayles, who subsequently recorded ISIS' following three long-players. Aaron Turner's artwork has been fully reimagined from the original elements, and the double LPs are housed in a gatefold jacket with printed innersleeves containing flood-black interior printing. Out of print for years, Celestial is finally available again with newly remastered audio, carefully crafted specifically for vinyl by longtime cohort James Plotkin.  We’ve pressed 2000 copies of this and they turned out great: 1100 black vinyl, and 300 each of three variations of yellow.  * Listen to track 3, “Glisten”, at SoundCloud * Order vinyl at the Robotic Empire - Online Store Beyond that obviously massive release, we’ve stocked a variety of rad stuff for the Robotic Empire - Online Store recently, pretty much all on large-format vinyl. A great stack of no-brainers so its almost a bit weird highlighting ANNIHILATION TIME, BARONESS, BLACK TUSK, BOTCH (!), CENTURIES, CHELSEA WOLFE, CONSTANTS, COUGH, HULL, INTER ARMA (!), PIG DESTROYER, TIDELAND (!), VITAMIN X, YEAR OF NO LIGHT, etc… but, we just did.

JESU “Christmas” vinyl & CD pre-orders up now! + Contest winner and GREAT year-end updates! We started the year with a release (TILTS) and now we’ll end the year with one… SURPRISE: four of Justin K. Broadrick’s incredible sonic personalities within one impressive 12” EP, simply titled Christmas. JESU lays the foundation with the initial hymn, along with brilliant remixes from related projects PALE SKETCHER and FINAL, plus an exclusive and brand new remix by the oppressive JK FLESH entity. Originally self-released as a digital-only EP for Xmas 2010, the 35+ minutes of music within have been sonically upgraded by mastering wizard James Plotkin specifically for the two physical formats. Vinyl edition comes on complimentary ice-blue color wax housed in a glorious high-gloss full color jacket, CD edition also comes with high-gloss artwork and has an exclusive lyrics page.  * Each format is limited to a one-time pressing of 500 copies * Preview 3/4ths of the release now at the JESU bandcamp (full stream coming soon via SPIN, check here in a bit) * Available to pre-order NOW at the Robotic Empire - Online Store We are expecting these to arrive at RoboHQ within the first week or two of December and plan to rock all the pre-orders right back out the door hopefully just in time for the holidays. If all goes according to plan, folks should be receiving their packages right around Xmas itself. However, because the entire postal system gets bogged down around the holidays, it is impossible to guarantee things at this time of year… that being said, Priority Mail is recommended for affordable semi-expedited delivery. This release has been in the pipeline for ages and we’re glad it’s finally (almost) in existence, even if so damn close to the wire. We’re thrilled to work with Justin K. Broadrick again and have plans to announce another JKB release in 2013. Beyond that, it’s been a wild year with a lot of changes for us but we’re happy to say that some stability is finally on the horizon with new roots being put down (and/or in motion) after long periods of flux. We keep chugging along with the Robotic Empire - Online Store and want to genuinely thank everyone who’s ordered from us this year, or… ever! We couldn’t keep this operation afloat without the direct support of our mailorder followers, and we really appreciate all of those who’ve stuck with us through the years or just found out about us recently. It’s getting increasingly difficult to run a label like ours in this “landscape” and blah blah blah, the same thing you’ve probably heard a lot of times by now… but at the end of the day, we are a small operation and sincerely appreciate everyone who’s helped.

JESU “Christmas” vinyl & CD pre-orders up now! + Contest winner and GREAT year-end updates!

We started the year with a release (TILTS) and now we’ll end the year with one…

SURPRISE: four of Justin K. Broadrick’s incredible sonic personalities within one impressive 12” EP, simply titled Christmas. JESU lays the foundation with the initial hymn, along with brilliant remixes from related projects PALE SKETCHER and FINAL, plus an exclusive and brand new remix by the oppressive JK FLESH entity.

Originally self-released as a digital-only EP for Xmas 2010, the 35+ minutes of music within have been sonically upgraded by mastering wizard James Plotkin specifically for the two physical formats. Vinyl edition comes on complimentary ice-blue color wax housed in a glorious high-gloss full color jacket, CD edition also comes with high-gloss artwork and has an exclusive lyrics page.

* Each format is limited to a one-time pressing of 500 copies
* Preview 3/4ths of the release now at the JESU bandcamp (full stream coming soon via SPIN, check here in a bit)
* Available to pre-order NOW at the Robotic Empire - Online Store

We are expecting these to arrive at RoboHQ within the first week or two of December and plan to rock all the pre-orders right back out the door hopefully just in time for the holidays. If all goes according to plan, folks should be receiving their packages right around Xmas itself.

However, because the entire postal system gets bogged down around the holidays, it is impossible to guarantee things at this time of year… that being said, Priority Mail is recommended for affordable semi-expedited delivery.

This release has been in the pipeline for ages and we’re glad it’s finally (almost) in existence, even if so damn close to the wire. We’re thrilled to work with Justin K. Broadrick again and have plans to announce another JKB release in 2013.

Beyond that, it’s been a wild year with a lot of changes for us but we’re happy to say that some stability is finally on the horizon with new roots being put down (and/or in motion) after long periods of flux.

We keep chugging along with the Robotic Empire - Online Store and want to genuinely thank everyone who’s ordered from us this year, or… ever! We couldn’t keep this operation afloat without the direct support of our mailorder followers, and we really appreciate all of those who’ve stuck with us through the years or just found out about us recently. It’s getting increasingly difficult to run a label like ours in this “landscape” and blah blah blah, the same thing you’ve probably heard a lot of times by now… but at the end of the day, we are a small operation and sincerely appreciate everyone who’s helped.
