“… 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:

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

Licensing deal – availability in iTunes, Spotify and much more!

Well, an update was long overdue, so here we go.

FOR GREATER GOOD is proud to have an agreement with CLUSTER PARK.
What does that mean for you, our dear fans?
Well, Cluster-Park, founded in 2017, is specialised in global music distribution (digital, vinyl, CD), licensing, publishing and synchronisation. Additionally Cluster-Park offers services in digital marketing, media promotion, legal advice, catalogue management and artist & repertoire support.
In practice, this means that in the first place we will be available on a lot of digital platforms.
There was the Bandcamp page of course, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
Now, the deal with Cluster Park will see us pop up on iTunes, Deezer, Spotify and many more. All our albums (5 up till now) are available for listening, buying and downloading. Click on the source of your choice in this post and bam, you are there! If more are added, we will keep you all updated.
Ain’t that great?

If that’s not enough already, we now also have a dedicated YouTube channel. Here you can listen to all the albums and songs as well, and give them a big thumbs up. It is also very convenient to spread the word around on Facebook and the like.

As a fan, you can really help us by listening to our music, liking, sharing and reviewing. It won’t take much of your time, but it would be a big help for us.

Thanks in advance and enjoy!

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!

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!
