New releases now available (YOUNG WIDOWS, FLOOR) +big Robotic Empire store update, ebay rarities & more!!

Got a pretty serious update for ya this week, with new Robotic Empire label releases and a pretty hefty update to our Online Store as well. Here we go...

First and foremost, nearly a year in the making is the YOUNG WIDOWS Live Radio Performance April 6, 2009 12". Having known these (solid) dudes since the chaotic heyday of their formerer outfit BREATHER RESIST, up through jumping in the van with them last year...witnessing live and then sneaking off with the sole copy of this radio performance, having it professionally mastered and approaching the band about a release... its suffice to say that YOUNG WIDOWS are essentially OLD KIN at this point. It is with great honor and excitement that we present this fantastic snapshot of these lifers in action.

500 copies of this were pressed on 180 GRAM black vinyl, with skull artwork by SKELETON ROYAL (Dan Davis/BAD SECRETS). A preview track from this live album can be found here and you can pick up the LP now in the Robotic Empire - Online Store.

At the opposite end of the format spectrum is the 8xCD set from FLOOR, compiling all of the same music from the massive Below & Beyond deluxe box set... creating a more affordable, stripped-down CD-only version (due to overwhelming demand). We made 700 copies of this 8xCD version, most of them available from stores/bigger sites/distros/etc, as well as from the band themselves at their upcoming reunion shows (starting next week)! We actually only got 50 copies for our Online Store, which are now available here. Copies of the deluxe 10xLP, 1x7", 8xCD Box Set version still remain as well.

On that note: the deluxe vinyl set is finally DONE and now in house! We've currently shipped out about half of the pre-orders so far and are busting ass to get the rest out ASAP. This has been a lot more labor intensive than we anticipated, and we've chosen to really secure the holy hell out of each box set as opposed to just rushing it. Some extra helping hands have been brought in to expedite things, so everyone who's pre-ordered the FLOOR box set should be receiving their copy soon! Anyone who's still interested in this beast and hasn't picked it up yet: now is the time.

Last and possibly least, some additional spring cleaning/moving sale action is under way with a weird string of posters, prints, proofs and other random rarities all up now on ebay. A bunch of John Dyer Baizley (BARONESS) rarities are in there, along with an original TORCHE Meanderthal test print, some Daniel Danger rarities and a bunch of other stuff. These auctions are running for 7 days and everything starts at 99 cents with no reserve: check it out.

Oh yeah, we also got a pile of cool stuff for the Robotic Empire - Online Store too. Mostly new jammers & restocks from staples Magic Bullet and Denovali, but also threw online a handful of old Robotic Archive items found during recent cleanup. Just 1 copy of most of those old Robo items, so if you don't see them available on the site they already sold out.

ROBOTIC EMPIRE - Online Store Update -Rare Archive Finds / Auctions!

Some pretty big announcements to make along with this week's Robotic Empire - Online Store update: the first being that the FLOOR - Below & Beyond 10xLP 1x7" 8xCD Box Sets are FINALLY done and we're expecting to have them in house in about a week!! A sigh of relief is actually near, but first we've gotta receive, pack and ship a (literal?) ton of these beasts to everyone who pre-ordered. They should start shipping the week of 3/15 and we appreciate your patience if things are slightly backed up for a little bit while we get these all shipped out.

Another sizeable thing of note is the current auctioning of a bunch of test presses, rarities and other personal-stash stuff from the Robo Archives. These records are on ebay now and are ending this Sunday night (3/7). Dug deep for this one, and also selling a lot of music equipment (amps, guitars, pedals, etc) so please check those out if you have a chance.

On the Robotic Empire - Online Store front, we've got a sweet variety of stuff again this time around, albeit a bit "heavy on the heavy". Dug up some old stuff while digging through all the test presses, plus found a few hidden things while checking through inventory.

We've also scored some "die hard" editions of CANNABIS CORPSE and HIDDEN HAND records, along with finally stocking the phenomenal PYGMY LUSH / TURBOSLUT split LP which contains easily the best Pygmy jams released to date (a preview of the intensity of the stuff they're cooking up now...). Add in some crucial stoney stuff from Meteor City, lots of imports plus a solid batch of restocks, and this turned into a pretty stacked update overall! Here ya go:
