Brony EDM Legend Archie Collab Album, “The Dessolation of Archie”, Releases August 17:
This August, the electronic pony music world is about to be taken by storm.
EDM producer Archie (now also known as Desso) has been hard at work on his brand new album, “The Dessolation of Archie”. The album is an unpredecented collaboration between Archie and many of the fandom’s most respected musical minds, including:
- Eurobeat Brony
- Knife Pony
- Silva Hound
- The Living Tombstone
These awesome musicians joined together to support their fellow brony in his time of need. All of the proceeds from sales of this new album will go to fund much-needed surgery for Archie.
The album will release on Sunday, August 17, 2014 at 1:00am Eastern, and will be available via Archie’s Bandcamp page: http://mrarchie.bandcamp.com/
About The Cause
Some of Archie’s fans know about his health situation, but for those of you who don’t, here’s a quick summary:
Several months ago, Archie began experiencing severe headaches, migraines, nausea, pain, fever and other symptoms. A trip to the doctor initially revealed a kidney infection, but further investigation showed a more sinister cause for his problems: an arachnoid cyst that is growing near his spinal cord, pressing on vital nerves and quickly becoming potentially life-threatening.
Because of the cyst’s proximity to Archie’s vital organs, removal is a very risky process that carries with it the danger of a rupture or lethal infection. Unfortunately, surgery is the only remaining option as the cyst continues to grow. Over the next 6-24 months, the growing cyst will put increasing pressure on his spinal column, slowly debilitating and possibly eventually killing him.
For more on Archie’s condition, including supporting documentation and x-ray scans, visit the Wolf Beats page dedicated to his fundraiser.
For years now, Archie has poured his heart and soul into his music, and the brony community owes him an immense debt of gratitude for the amazing music he has produced. His music has not only kept us all entertained throughout the years, but it has inspired many of our favorite musicians to take the plunge into music production themselves. Because of the influence Archie has had on the pony music world, many of our favorite musicians put their minds together and produced this amazing album to support his continuing health.

For all the details, check out the EBC’s press release below:
After months of hard work, the Equestrian Broadcasting Company is proud to present the next chapter in the thrilling saga of the Fallout: Equestria Radio Play. In the last episode, we left our young heroine, Littlepip, as she was swept up in a series of events that would change her life forever.
Having left the comforts of her stable, Littlepip is subjected to the vast and harsh nature of the Wasteland for the very first time, and although she is mere feet from the place she had lived her whole life, she couldn’t be further from home. How will she adjust to the horrors lying in wait around every turn? Where could Velvet Remedy have gone, and for what reason?
What does the future hold for our heroine in the making?
