Next-generation rock group All Good Things just dropped a monstrous new version of their anthemic hit “For The Glory,” now featuring Johnny 3 Tears and Charlie Scene of Hollywood Undead.
The track, an unapologetic victory song for the underdog, with lyrics like “We celebrate with the city tonight/ Hear the hometown cheer/ It’s the ultimate high,” has already resonated with millions of listeners around the world with its original version reaching over 100M streams across digital platforms to date. This new, amplified rendition comes ahead of the band’s first full-length studio album since signing with Better Noise Music, due later this year. “For The Glory (featuring Hollywood Undead)” is now available to stream or download HERE.
To accompany the release of the new version of the single, the band also premiered a music video today, directed by Wombat Fire. Watch NOW. Featuring footage from the upcoming horror-thriller feature film The Retaliators (in which the song appears, coming later this year from Better Noise Films), the new video very much embodies the band’s origins. The LA-based group began by creating monster rock songs that could be used across media like games, TV and films. They created and expanded this cinematic rock sonic profile in reaction to their growing fan base, who could hear their music featured in countless TV shows, games, films and ads worldwide – including the popular game Mortal Kombat, the NFL Super Bowl 52 broadcast, episodes of “Shark Tank,” “Criminal Minds,” “Vampire Diaries” and ads for Sony PlayStation.
Of this new version the band said, “‘For the Glory’ is a swagger anthem about celebrating a hard earned victory against all odds, with all the people around you that helped get you there. We’re so touched by how many people have connected with this song since we first released it. We love collaborating and are so grateful to our friends Johnny 3 Tears and Charlie Scene from Hollywood Undead for hopping on this and taking it to the next level.”
All Good Things
All Good Things creates cinematic epic rock that celebrates the underdog, lifts the fallen, and all out gloats in victory.
Pairing post-apocalyptic pump-up rock with powerful lyrics, AGT crafts a massive, bombastic sensory assault of anthemic heavy rock, summoning vistas associated with gaming or blockbuster movies.
In a masterful feat of reverse-engineering, the LA-based collective has become a potent musical force in the opposite fashion from how most groups get their start. “We were just having fun writing monster rock songs that got us hyped, hoping they might get used in games and movies,” says Dan Murphy (vocals, guitar).
AGT has since been featured in thousands of TV shows, games, films and ads worldwide. When music started being released online, increasing numbers of dedicated fans fell in love with the fist-pounding, high-energy rock anthems and demand grew. “That’s when we said ‘Wow, people are really into this,’” says Andrew Bojanic (guitar, vocals). “The music is inspirational and motivational,” adds Liz Hooper (bass, keyboards, vocals). “Our fans kind of honed that whole aesthetic, theme and imagery just with their feedback.”
AGT’s relationship with their fans is fully apparent on their forthcoming album, an epic collection tied around a common theme of surviving the apocalypse. It was inspired by the many games and films that AGT have placed their music, paying homage to the escapism those worlds provide listeners, one that’s more important today than ever.
