Fans finance the latest album by America's Showbread

THE SIXTH album by hard music band Showbread, 'Who Can Know It?', will be released as a free download through on 16th November. Earlier this year Showbread announced their departure from long-time home Tooth & Nail Records and their intention to partner with non-profit organization Come&Live!. The budget for recording the album was raised from fans. Said the band's frontman Josh Dies, "Even considering the sorry state the industry is in, the move wasn't about reinventing the wheel, it was about believing in a message of hope so sincerely that you'd much rather hand it out as a gift than charge someone for it." CR
