Negotiations between FGG and Choeur Noir are reaching the final stage!

In the wake of recent developments regarding the HERA compilation cd, For Greater Good and the Choeur Noir label have some plans for 2014.

We are currently putting the finishing touch on a whole bunch of new songs, which will be brought out in the course of 2014.

When exactly, in what format and how much this will change your life is yet to be discussed, but rest assured: next year will be a good year for FGG fans around the globe!

Thanks for all your support through the years!

Remixes By For Greater Good now available as FREE download!

After the work and effort of the Remixed and Reworked series, we were looking at our Bandcamp page and discovered an album that went a bit in a shady corner… so we thought it was time to revamp it: the Remixes by For Greater Good!

Unlike the R&R, where other bands covered our music, in this album we did the opposite, FGG remixed songs by other bands.

Recently, we sent some mails around, and everyone agreed to put these remixes as free downloads! You can download every track for free, or download the whole album in one go!

You can find remixes here by these nice bands: WUMPSCUT, GENERIC, NO MORE, PSY’AVIAH, LIQUID G., SAY HELLO TO MY KIDS and DARK CONTROL OPERATION!

As this is a nice gesture by the bands we remixed, please show your appreciation by visiting their websites, listen to their music and buy what you like!

For Greater Good Remixed & Reworked – First batch of the New Year!

Yeap, it took a couple of weeks, but after the holidays, here we are again with a brand new batch – batch 8 already!

That means we have a stunning 24 remixes up till now, and we’re still not quite there yet! This week, enjoy three superb remixes and reworks again:

- An ambient/experimental remake by Nils Parmentier, AKA Ater X Decem, rendering Love Your Terrorist into an even more intense song…:
Love Your Terrorist, AXD(istortion) Remix

- A dancefloor remake if we ever heard one! The Yellow King groovin’ it out on this super Bart Vervoort remix:
Judgement (Bart Vervoort Remix)

- Distress has been remixed quite some times already, but this rework by Dan Fox mixes noise, electro, punk and a good dose of symphonic elements into one very interesting blend!
Distress (LOSS Remix)

They were added to the album Remixed and Reworked, listen to all 24!

We are nearing the end of this extensive batch, remember you will have the chance to buy all remixes very soon for a modest price!
