• Ponies at Dawn Guardians Open For Submissions!

     Having now released 10 compilation albums of awesome music from all over the fandom's music scene, Ponies at Dawn have now opened up submissions for an 11th album, titled Guardians! If you're a musician who might be interested in taking part, or just want to keep up with what's coming out the pipeline in the music scene, you can check out all the information here, or check out the full press release below!

    Ponies at Dawn have now released a total of 10 albums over the last few years, and as we move onwards further into 2017, we’re excited at the possibilities in store for our future releases. To that end,  we’re proud to announce that we’re opening submissions for our next album - Guardians.

    In our last album, Amity, we celebrated the joys of collaboration and friendship with themes of working together to make something special, but this time around there are enemies to confront as battle lines are drawn.

    The term guardians here specifically refers to the those at the forefront of defence against potential invaders. Alicorns such as Twilight, Celestia and Luna are ultimately responsible for their realm’s safety and as such they are honour-bound to give protection as best they can. The theme for this album is somewhat warlike in nature, and whilst we always accept music based on quality first and foremost, it’s always great to hear music that plays into the theme. Whether it’s lyrical in nature or the way the instrumental might help to depict the tidings of battle, any inspiration drawn from the theme is highly encouraged.

    As usual, the money made by the album from donations on BandCamp will go towards the artists who make it onto the album, as thanks for the hard work put in to make the album a reality. The album will be under the ‘pay what you want’ model, so that those who don’t wish to pay for it don’t have to. We believe that the most important part of these albums, is getting artists’ music out to as many different listeners as possible.
