Showbread is a Christian Post-hardcore/Alternative band from the Savannah, Georgia area. They are signed to Come and Live.

Showbread is one of many modern post-hardcore bands that have infused screaming into many different styles of music, buthas differentiated itself from the typical post-hardcore band in many ways. The band's two vocalists, Josh Dies and IvoryMobley (Who announced his soon departure in 2007), trade off in dueling vocals which alternate between yelling, screaming,and singing. This effect, combined with the band's frenetic live shows, have caused the band to occasionally be labeled as a"spazz rock" band. In addition, Showbread is one of the few post-hardcore bands that use a keytar. Furthermore, they areknown for wearing matching outfits when performing, usually in red and black but more recently green replacing red in supportof their new album Age of Reptiles. In keeping with their campaign for originality in the music scene, the band generally doesnot refer to their music as a particular genre; instead, they prefer the term "raw rock." In the words of lead guitarist Matt Davis,"No one ever knew what to say when people asked what style of music we were, so rather than come up with some hyphenfilled moniker, we just started saying 'raw rock' and turned it into our campaign..

Their latest album "Who Can Know It?" was funded entirely by a Kickstarter campaign, allowing the band to release the albumcompletely free through Come and Live. « hide
