Richmond/Philly/NY's vagabonds ULTRA DOLPHINS recently embarked on their first European tour alongside their close pals WOW OWLS. December 26th - January 15th is safely seeing them travel all around mainland Europe, delivering their patented, unique blend of post-hardcore, math rock, indie, chaotic hardcore and far more. Upon the return to the states, the band will finish the final stages of mixing their upcoming debut album for Robotic Empire, simply entitled "Mar".

This, the band's first full-length, has been recorded over several months at Richmond's fine Recorditorium studio with engineer Jason Laferrera (Stop It!!, Gregor Samsa, VCR, etc). A plethora of tracks will be included on this fierce debut, which will see a release mid-2006. Until then, the band has compiled six older tracks from two limited EP releases for the "Why Are You Laugh" collections disc on Robotic Empire. This intense 24-minute CD will hit the streets March 14th, but both the band and label have them available now, on tour and through Robotic Empire's Online Store, respectively. A newly re-mastered MP3 from the collections disc has been posted at the following locations:
