Delirious? Announce Break for Band

Published: 2008-07-08
UK rock worship band Delirious? have just announced that at the end of 2009, the band will take a break from recording and playing as a band. The break was triggered by a request from frontman Martin Smith who wished to pursue new projects including his work with CompassionArt and out of the desire to be at home more with his wife Anna and his children.

Delirious? had this to say regarding the break, "We are all so deeply grateful to our incredible fans who have sung the songs and allowed Delirious? the privilege of providing the soundtrack to many lives over the years. From the school hall in Littlehampton to the stadiums of the world we have many stories to tell our children's children. Delirious? also would not be what it is without our amazing wives and families, and our gratitude to them is immense. We will now move forward to the next part of our lives where new challenges unfold and greater stories will be written. We want to make it absolutely clear that although this decision has been extremely painful and difficult, we are still great friends and our respect for each other is unquestionable. We love playing in this band together and know that even though 2009 will bring an end to this current journey, there will be more adventures together in years to come."

The band recently released their album Kingdom of Comfort to critical acclaim. Canadians wanting to see some of the last performances from the band can catch them here:
