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 thanks Pluto Festival!

Big THANKS to all involved at Pluto Festival last Thursday, it was a blast!

A very well-organised event, with stagehands knowing their stuff, very smooth soundchecks and setup, good catering, drinks, backstage — a textbook event if we ever saw one.

Thanks to Pieter Coussement and all the crew at Nijdrop for having us on stage, thanks to the crowd, a lot of them coming especially to support us, which is heart-warming!

Thank you to Mark Burghgraeve for being our soundman behind the desk again, you did a very good job as always!

Playlist: Ossetian Ossuary – Le Jugement Du Roi En Jaune – Orbit – Love Your Terrorist – Distress – DTFN (featuring the Light Saber) – And Thus… Unfolds – Ihtyll (short version)

Thank you all for coming, see you all next time!

For Greater Good ringtone for free on Bandcamp!

Okay, and now for something completely different, a small freebie in a brand new ‘Ringtones’ section.

This is the ringtone for “Spring Mechanist”, a song which was featured on our 2008 album “For Greater Good”.

It is edited so that it makes a seamless loop when used on your mobile phone.

Go to http://forgreatergood.bandcamp.com/album/ringtones for the download!

Enjoy!

Happy 2012… with a special gift for you!

FOR GREATER GOOD wishes you all a Happy New Year and a healthy and music-filled 2012!
