“… Unfolds” EP release

We gave you a hint some time ago, an now it finally happened.

After a hiatus of a couple of years, For Greater Good is set to release the “…Unfolds” EP, containing four new songs.

The EP is licensed under Purple People Park which is a part of Cluster Park.

You can listen to, and buy the new EP here:

https://forgreatergood.bandcamp.com/album/unfolds

We do hope you like what you hear, and thank you all for the support throughout the years!

Time for a new release 2020

For Greater Good are near the end of mixing a new EP which will see the light of day very soon. The administration is being done as we speak, as is the mastering and artwork.

The EP will contain 4 songs previously unreleased (some of them were played live already tho) and will be in that typical FGG style, which means eh… not typical at all.

Expect styles ranging from neoclassical to ambient, electronic, harsh electro, triphop, glitch, soundscape and found sounds.

Stay tuned, stay inside, and above all, stay SAFE.

Searching… for the perfect mix… EP 2020

FGG plays Trouwfest #3!

So…
We will come out of our cave again after some years, to do a special event: the third edition of Trouwfest. This event takes place on June 15, at JH Wommel, Fort II, Wommelgem, Belgium.
“Trouwfest” is an annual free public event, organised by happy couple Dimi Brands and Sigrid Vereecken, in the first place to celebrate their wedding anniversary, but especially to give a stage to genres/acts who doesn’t play often in Belgium.
Well, that sounds like FGG material to me!
Be welcome, we will be opener for the event, so don’t miss out.
A dark and brooding mix of old and new songs will be played (although you all know FGG ain’t THAT dark after all, and the message of hope will always be there).
Also, we are preparing some surprises. We hope it all works out and you are all there to share the moment with us AND the happy couple that organises Trouwfest in the first place.

See you all!

A word about side projects…

There’s life outside For Greater Good of course.
Izzy and samdevos are busy with some other projects as well, so maybe it’s time to highlight some of them, too.

Detour Doom Project is a darkjazz/ambient project where Izzy plays trumpets and flugelhorn on their new CD “Nothing Remains Of Us”, and it got a very nice review in Belgium’s leading underground magazine Dark Entries.

Read all about it here! (review in Dutch)

Another project Izzy is involved with trumpet-wise is The Sarto Klyn V, Ian Ferguson’s pet project, which is a bit more smooth jazz than Detour Doom Project.

Nothing Remains Of Us

 

2015 – a new song, a new video…

It’s been rather quiet in camp FGG that last couple of… well… years actually.
Real life kicking in does that sometimes.

But now we have something new to show you.

First off, a never released song, only played live a couple of times.
“And Thus… Unfolds” is an abstract audio-visual sculpture depicting urban life, decay, industry, concrete and polymer, wire and wireless, alienation through social media and the hectic society of today. Already adorned live with an excellent art-video by VV303’s Steve Deconinck, this song was also picked up by another artist who made his own visual interpretation of the song.

Alex Amerantropoides , explorer of the mind and artistic jack-of-all-trades, made some stunning art videos before… and this one is no different! He had a very interesting personal view, but still with the FGG vibe clearly present. Check out his other stuff as well.

Enjoy the new song and video!
