    It’s probably both ironic and oddly fitting that what began in 1997 as a contemporary Christian cover act became one of the strangest and most unique bands you’ve never heard of. Showbread was founded by two brothers in southeast Georgia on the premise that it would be fun to have a band that could play at their local church services. When the Southern Baptists they had grown up with recoiled at the notion of loud rock music in their sanctuary, the teenage band members found themselves with no home base and decided it was time to take their art (and their faith) more seriously.

    Signed to independent giant Tooth & Nail records in 2004, Showbread released their label debut No Sir, Nihilism Is Not Practical -- an unflinchingly chaotic spasm of an album -- to instant fan adoration. How did Showbread celebrate their newfound popularity? By purposefully destroying it with their sophomore release Age Of Reptiles; a deliberate antithesis of the previous record…you know, the one that won them their fanbase. What does a band with severely divided listeners do after venturing from the outlandishly abstract to the world of pop rock? They release a double disc concept record called Anorexia Nervosa that requires the listener to simultaneously read along with a short story as the music acts as a sort of literary soundtrack, said music being a ruthless take on gothic industrial, of course. Now a fixture of cult fandom and largely dismissed by critics, Showbread fulfilled it’s contract with Tooth & Nail records with the swan song to the first wave of their creative endeavors: The Fear Of God.

    In 2010, Showbread continued to step further away from the ordinary by leaving their record label to partner with non-profit organization Come&Live! with intentions to give away their sixth album, Who Can Know It? -- their biggest (and best) musical departure to date -- and the supporting tour both as free gifts. When asked why in the world Showbread had done all these strange things, they responded by crediting their actions to the same force that motivated the formation of their band: Their belief in Jesus.

    In 2012, Showbread released Cancer, a science fiction rock opera and their second album to be released through Come&Live!. Their final album, Showbread Is Showdead, was released in 2016. with the original lineup from No Sir, Nihilism Is Not Practical. Along with the album release, Showbread also released a documentary entitled The Music Is Dead and the Cancer movie.

    There have been efforts in making institutional care happen. Healthcare delivery too is one of the most crucial aspects. Although there is improvement in the managerial efficiency it is indeed required to account if the services reach the beneficiaries (poor) as well. health meals equity

    Ahh, Showbread | Posted October 27, 2009
    This is quite possibly the most under rated band in the world. They constantly make some of the best music out there but are far to often overlooked.
