If you were on Facebook this weekend, chances are you were one of the thousands surprised by Showbread’s sudden release of everything ever. The band’s final album, Showbread is Showdead, serves as a call back to the band’s label debut, No Sir, Nihilism Is Not Practical and is available for streaming on Spotify or purchase on vinyl at the band’s site.

Kickstarter backers will be glad to see the video release of Showbread’s 2012 science fiction rock opera, Cancer. The film can be streamed for $4.99 at Vimeo. Likewise, the band posted a documentary following their No Sir… reunion along with interviews and live shows. The Music is Dead is also available for purchase or renting at Vimeo.

There is no better way to end a career. May raw rock kill you forever and ever. Amen.
