Free Download: Showbread – Cancer

Its that time again, when the Raw Rock legends known as Showbread unless their latest creation on the planet. Cancer is a concept album that is touted as ” a science-fiction rock opera” that will serve as the soundtrack for a movie of the same name that the band are putting the finishing touches on as we speak.

All of that aside, the album is Showbread going back and doing what they do best: a combination of garage punk, chaotic hardcore, and indie dance music that band has termed “raw rock”. Not so much on the last album, but Showbread fans will love Cancer as their band has come back the sound they created. Enjoy

Free Download: Showbread- Who Can Know It?

showbread-who can know it

Showbread is one of those strange bands that by popular standards shouldn’t be as popular as they are, but somehow are able to remain respected and somewhat big all at the same time. From their beginnings as a chaotic hardcore band to their eventual evolution into a genre they call “raw rock”, the band has consistently reinventing themselves at every turn, always trying to give fans a little something different with every album.

Last year after the critical success of The Fear Of God, the band announced that they were splitting with longtime label home Tooth & Nail Records, and became part of ministry label Come&Live! If you have been reading this website for a while, you will know ONE21′s undying affection for Come&Live!, so naturally the union of Showbread and the label was welcome news.

The time is now, we present the latest from raw rock band Showbread with the album Who Can Know It?. The album is Showbread exploring new areas (this one is a little softer in places than I think most people are ready for), and rockin out on the rest. If you are into indie/punkish sounding rock with strong spiritual themes, you need to download Who Can Know It? right now.

Free Download:The Ember Days-Finger Painting EP

the ember days fingerpainting ep

Come&Live! is a great source for exceptional free music. Their artists give away their music as a gift to the people that they are serving, and see it as part of their ministry to do so. In the last year, Come&Live! have attracted a number of talented artists, including So Long Forgotten, Ascend The Hill, and most recently Showbread.

The label had a new release this week from one of their flagship artists, The Ember Days, with their new EP entitled Finger Painting. If you already own the band’s self-titled EP, then let me say that these 5 songs are light years from their previous material. The New Zealand band has really injected their own voice into the worship music they write, and the result is something that is sure to touch your heart and move your spirit.

You can download the EP from Come&Live! below for free or with a donation of your choosing.

Showbread Signs With Come&Live!

showbread 09

In news that can only mean amazing things in the future, raw rock band band Showbread have left Tooth & Nail Records to join up with ministry label Come&Live!. The following statement appeared on Showbread‘s website yesterday:

Showbread has been a band for twelve years. We have played upwards of 2,000 shows, traveled to numerous countries, met thousands of people and experienced more than any of us can cram into our memories. During that time our goal as a band has remained constant: Use Showbread to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ with every available resource, specifically using our uninhibited God-given creativity. This has included the utilization of our music as an instrument to preach as well as worship, reaching out to make personal connections with our fans, friends and other bands, and to work to dispel misconceptions about following Jesus in a young culture that has often been misled. Tremendously flawed as we may be, Showbread has remained steadfast in our vision that we exist as a band for one purpose only: to proclaim the name of Jesus.

For a large part of Showbread’s “career” we have existed as a part of the musical industry. The more our band excelled, the more we realized the challenge of pursuing our calling as a ministry while navigating the professional waters of the industry. We have experienced many ups and downs: wonderful record sales, poor record sales, sold out concerts, and concerts with only seven audience members. Through it all we have always fought to embrace our trials as well as our blessings and trust that as long as God has ordained our art and ministry He will certainly continue to use it as a tool to do His work. We acknowledged and accepted that Jesus would provide for our needs whether we were “successful” within the industry or not. This mentality creates a paradox within the “business” of music. It can be difficult to convince record labels, managers, radio stations, etc. to believe in and support your artistic vision when your ultimatum as a band is not making money or selling records, but rather doing the will of Christ even if it means changing only a single heart with a single record.

Add to this complicated formula Showbread’s notoriously unpredictable and obstinate artistic vision. Throughout our band’s timeline we have consistently refused to honor any musical rules or expectations and in doing so we’ve often frustrated those we work with on a professional level as well as fans of our music. We decided early on to consider only God’s call on our music and the creative freedom He grants us to accomplish His goals, using the gifts He so generously gives. Once again, it often presents an interesting situation when you explain to someone whose job is to sell your album that you honestly don’t care if anyone buys it, as long as you have honored your artistic/evangelistic calling.

God has provided an amazing opportunity for Showbread with Come&Live! Through a community of like-minded individuals striving to equip ministry oriented bands to live out the great commission, encourage and develop musicianaries and work to enable them to offer their music as a free gift. At this point in our lives as Showbread, we have decided to withdraw from many elements of the industry that have been a part of our band for years, sign with Come&Live! and trust God to provide ways for us to offer our music and our performances as free gifts in order to expand the scope of our ministry. By offering our music as a gift with no charge and embracing Christ’s call to give generously we will open our ministry to anyone and everyone who will take any note of it, not just those willing to pay for it. It is our hope to make Showbread more like the work of missionaries than the work of a professional rock and roll band.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR ME, THE LISTENER? Showbread will be releasing its next album in a variety of formats including a completely free high quality download through comeandlive.com. We are also pursuing methods to make our performances free as well, which may be an experimental process that takes a while to perfect.

HOW CAN I HELP? To begin with, prayer is greatly appreciated during this transitional period as we begin a challenging new method of operation. Please add Showbread to your list of daily prayer points and remember our specific needs and us when you talk to God. Check our list of needs often to be able to pray for specifics or contribute to a specific need. After prayer and petition, donate as you feel led to one of our funds or to our overall ministry. Pray about supporting Showbread and Come&Live! Monthly or on an ongoing basis through a partial tithe. Please share our story with like-minded friends and family who might not follow the band as musical fans, but support our mission.
