We are extremely stoked to announce our second tribute to Nirvana, this time with their breakout Nevermind album being covered in full by a diverse range of bands. The new tribute LP, titled Whatever Nevermind, is being released April 18th in conjunction with Record Store Day 2015, and sees diverse contributions from Boris, Cave In, Circa Survive, Kylesa, La Dispute, Nothing, Pygmy Lush, Thou, Torche, Touche Amore, White Reaper, Wrong and Young Widows.

The lineup assembled for Whatever Nevermind has some of our favorite active bands running Nirvana's classics through their own creative filters. What they've come up with is a great merging of individual style with a nod to the influence of 'grunge'.

Nirvana clearly doesn't need further accolade; they've been inducted into the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame, are known by most music fans on the planet, and are one of the all-time greats. That being said, Nirvana helped shape our tastes and of countless musicians we respect, and to pay even a slight homage to them in return is a privilege. Working with the amazing range of talents involved here, including several return contributors from the first tribute LP, is an absolute honor, and we can't wait for people to hear the results.

Circa Survive's take on 'Drain You' premieres today via Alternative Press and can be heard here:

http://www.altpress.com/features/entry/ ... _exclusive

On their method of tackling the project, Brendan from Circa Survive says:

"There are different ways to approach covering a band. For us, doing a Nirvana song takes us back to a very raw place that we were in when we were young and just falling in love with music. We didn't want to say 'here's what this song would've sounded like if Circa wrote it'. It was way more fun for us to live in their energy and pay homage to their influence by just rocking the shit out of it and keeping it raw."

The vinyl edition of Whatever Nevermind is being released as a 12" + bonus 7" combined, with artwork inspired by and mutated from the original album, and includes a high-quality digital download. Record Store Day 2015 will see an exclusive color-vinyl edition accompanied by a large poster, akin to the 2014 RSD release of In Utero: In Tribute.

The tribute will also be available April 18th to download/stream from all digital outlets, with digital pre-orders now available from iTunes including immediate availability of Circa Survive's cover of 'Drain You':

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/whate ... d973746631

Last year's In Utero: In Tribute vinyl sold out on release day, the digital version received a spotlight on the iTunes storefront and received coverage across high-profile media including Alternative Press, SPIN and The Guardian.

As Robotic Empire's 100th release, "In Utero: In Tribute" concluded an oft-rumored, elusive 7-year project. Just one year later, the catalog number for followup homage "Whatever Nevermind" appropriately lands at Robo 116, as the label celebrates its 16th year of existence with this release. We couldn't be more proud and excited to present this to you!

"Whatever Nevermind"

Young Widows - Smells Like Teen Spirit
Torche - In Bloom
Kylesa - Come As You Are
Cave In - Breed
Boris - Lithium
La Dispute - Polly
White Reaper - Territorial Pissings
Circa Survive - Drain You

Philly quartet NOTHING unveil their tribute to NIRVANA's "Something In The Way" via Noisey/Vice:

http://noisey.vice.com/blog/nothing-nirvana-something-in-the-way-cover

Instead of their trademark whitewash of guitar layers, NOTHING opts for a starker approach to the somber classic, with piano and vibrant vocals up front in Will Yip's beautiful mix.

The track is found on Robotic Empire's Whatever Nevermind tribute to NIRVANA's breakout album, which sees Nevermind covered in full and set for release on April 18th (Record Store Day) on both vinyl, and digitally.

Digital pre-orders of the album are up now, with "Something In The Way" available immediately:

If you can: PLEASE SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL STORES! This is an important day for retail shops, and Record Store Day really helps local businesses who bust ass year-round to get tunes to those who enjoy them.

Everyone anywhere else: we plan to have a 'standard' edition of the "Whatever Nevermind" release available online shortly after RSD. Ideally, Saturday evening but TBC. Keep an eye on our site and Online Store then, we will have a LOT of new items available in addition to the "Whatever Nevermind" album. A full list of new titles will get posted on our main page. www.roboticempire.com
