An Official Lyric Video for “Hold on (Ft. Lacey Sturm)” and Music Video for “Hold on (Acoustic)” Are Now Available
NEW YORK, NY – September 23, 2022 – Today, All Good Things released their new EP Hold On via Better Noise Music, a year after their debut album A Hope In Hell was released. The band broke barriers last year, earning over 81.3M streams in the last 12 months, their first rock radio #1 with “For The Glory,” a song that has been featured in major tentpole cultural moments like last year’s Stanley Cup Finals, ABC News’ broadcast promo for the 2021 State of the Union and Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance.” The EP includes two new versions of their fan-favorite track, “Hold On,” a collaboration with Lacey Sturm and an acoustic version, the latter of which is also receiving its official music video premiere today. A lyric video for “Hold On (ft. Lacey Sturm)” also premiered today. Catch the band on tour with Theory of a Deadman this fall, visit HERE for tickets. Stream Hold On HERE – see the full track listing below. Watch the official music video for “Hold On (Acoustic)” HERE.
All Good Things bass player Liz Hooper shared, “The Hold On EP is a long-awaited collection of songs that seem to perfectly capture the emotions the world is feeling right now. The EP features a powerful collab with the legendary Lacey Sturm on “Hold On,” a heartfelt acoustic orchestral version, a B-side “Relentless” which is a deep cut AGT army favorite, and an epic rock rendition of Destiny’s Child’s “Survivor.”
Lead singer Dan Murphy says “We wrote and recorded these songs at a time when we all were feeling frustrated, wondering if our album would ever come out and worried about what crazy thing was going to happen next! These songs became an anthem to ourselves to keep fighting and “hold on,” even as the world was coming to a standstill with the pandemic. Years later we’re so moved to discover that these songs have become our fans’ anthems of survival too, especially through the many challenges of the last few years.”
The intimate official music video for “Hold On (Acoustic)” features the band performing the song in the studio. The video was directed by the band and is available to stream.
All Good Things is partnering with To Write Love On Her Arms to create honest and hopeful conversations during the month of September, Suicide Prevention Month. TWLOHA is working to disrupt the belief that struggling with mental health makes you a burden by exploring what it looks like to support people through their darkest moments, learning how to have the conversations and connect people to resources, and investing in the tools and resources that make healing possible. Their goal is to raise $250,000 which will make it possible to sponsor 3,600 counseling and group therapy sessions, and support 45,000 people in finding local mental health resources. Visit youarenotaburden.com for more information. Use the campaign hashtag #NotABurden and #SuicidePreventionMonth to help All Good Things and To Write Love On Her Arms raise awareness this September.

ABOUT 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 album A Hope In Hell, 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.
