|New Showbread Album Info|

Experimental post-hardcore outfit Showbread have elaborated in great detail about their
upcoming concept album Cancer; not only will it have a science fiction theme, but it
will also be accompanied by a full-length movie produced and directed by the band.
Additionally, they have decided to once again give their album away for free. In order for
this to become a reality, however, they have set up a Kickstarter page for fans to pledge
donations toward the ambitious goal of $43,000 by April 24, 2012 (they raised more than
$20,000 over their goal of $13,000 for their last album).
They have cited The Darkness and David Bowie among others for musical influences this time

I want to still love this band like the NSNiNP days.
I really do.
Fuuuuck yeah. This is going to rule.
kind of excited. hope they reach their goal.
I've got high hopes for this one.
showbread is awesome, i like that bands are starting to use kickstarter. the entrance band is using it for their new album as well. looking forward to both albums.
One of the great Christian bands.
These guys are really creative. I didn't enjoy their last album as much as their older stuff but I'll definitely check this out.
should i check this band out? some scene girl showed me this band in high school so i automatically dismissed them as bad
Digging: Weatherbox - American Art
@hospital, definitely check them out. really unique, respectable, and underrated band. each album is different.
Digging: Waxahatchee - American Weekend
good to hear they're still goin at it.
havent listened to these guys since age of reptiles
miss seeing them live. I used to be so obsessed with them.
andcas... that actually ruled.
thanks for enlightening me
@hospital, glad you did. like I said, each album has it's own sound. they're fucking hilarious by the way as you can see.
Good to hear saw them a few weeks ago with The Chariot was an amazing concert
I didn't even realize they were still around :/ I stopped listening to them when the Fear of God came out. I didn't even enjoy anything after No Sir, mostly because of Ivory Mobley's absence.
Digging: Boards of Canada - Music Has the Right to Children
this band has some pretty chaotic blood brothers esque stuff
yeah, they pretty much have anything you could like.
ramy don't be that guy
this band has been terrible since No Sir, Nihilism Is Not Practical. they've lost all their energy and gotten obsessed with being grandiose and a little self-righteous.
Digging: Captain, We're Sinking - The Future Is Cancelled
oh so you're one of those fair weather showbread fans.
I remember seeing these guys in Rincon, GA 6 years ago. As long as they still have the keytar player, this will rule hard.
lol josh and his brother are the only two original members.
"they've lost all their energy and gotten obsessed with being grandiose and a little self-righteous."
lol having personally known the band for five and a half years, this is nowhere near the truth.
^Haven't seen IAmInsect around here for a while, kind of figured there'd be a sighting on this thread.
When they did Who Can Know It? I was able to throw $250 their way. This time around, I'm not nearly in that kind of position, but I want to see what happens with this. WCKI? wasn't exactly my favorite, but I love that they had the balls to do it. Hope this is awesome, as I really love it when Josh Dies goes all out. His books, as well as Anorexia Nervosa, are fucking awesome.
I'm more interested in the prospect of a film than album.
""they've lost all their energy and gotten obsessed with being grandiose and a little self-righteous."

grandiose: Anorexia Nervosa, the failed concept album
self-righteous: the entirety of Who Can Know It?
also listen to No Sir and WCKI? back to back and tell me they haven't lost their energy
also i don't think it's fair-weather to say "man this band used to be good" when in all honesty, they used to be really good, and they've just lost their spark
"grandiose: Anorexia Nervosa, the failed concept album"
dude lets get real. that album was fucking phenomenal.
especially the cinematic live show that accompanied it.
Yeah I don't see how AN was a failure at all.
Really excited to see which direction they take with this album. Last album was amazing just like the rest of their work.
105% funded. Boom.
I hope it's more energetic. never know what to expect though.
