Hewhocorrupts issues USB bracelet release

Official press release:

Chicago's infamous "corporate grindcore" outfit Hewhocorrupts are no stranger to weird releases: having formerly issued a credit card sized CD housed in a wallet, a NSFW split calendar, an EP packaged with shredded money, etc... but THIS one takes the cake.

"Midi of Profits" is what it's called, and a 1gb USB rubber bracelet is what it is. That's right, Robotic Empire has released a rubber USB bracelet with MIDI songs on it. The files in question are meticulously re-created computerized versions of Hewhocorrupts' classic "Master of Profits" EP, but now with MIDI guitars, machine drums and vocoded vocals. An insane amount of time was spent making these tracks, and it is somewhat mind blowing how accurately they digitally reflect the originals.

To spice it up even further, the release includes tablature for all the songs, two classic related music videos, album art, credits and more on this fully functional 1gb USB-chip-infused rubber bracelet. Fashionable AND functional, per the Hewhocorrupts corporate mantra. You can wear it and share it, but the only place to get this beaut is through the Robotic Empire Online Store (and the band themselves). 200 of these were made in a one-time-only production, due to the overall absurdity of this release.
