Nashville, TN (March 31, 2008) – The UK-based, RIAA Certified Gold-selling, globally relevant band Delirious? releases tomorrow its widely praised, eleventh studio album, Kingdom of Comfort. Its first new studio album since the acclaimed 2005 release, Mission Bell, Delirious?’s Kingdom of Comfort questions everything, from cancer to consumerism, “five star” dreams to slums and poverty. It is an album that calls for sacrifice, social justice and love.
Delirious? members share their moving experiences that led to the Kingdom of Comfort recording in their newly designed Delirious? Media Player available today at http://delirious.thewidgetplanet.com/delirious_widget.htm.
The player features video of the band talking about the new album along with video of their travels to some of the poorest countries on earth where they faced encounters with life that made poverty personal and forced hard questions to be asked by each member.
Full songs from Kingdom of Comfort featured on the media player include “God Is Smiling” and the current hit radio single, “We Give You Praise.” The player also includes three additional clips: the album’s title track, “Love Will Find A Way” and “Break the Silence.”
For the first time ever, the player gives fans the opportunity to not only see the video and hear songs from the new album, but place the media player on their blog, MySpace or other social network websites to share with their online visitors. Furthermore, fans will be able to purchase Kingdom of Comfort through the player.
As fans discover the new music for the first time, here is what the critics are already saying about the album:
“The group’s finest work to date, Kingdom of Comfort represents a band musically in its prime… The result is a magnum opus reflecting deep introspection as well as a newfound commitment to compassionate outreach and social justice.” – CCM Magazine
“As champions of the modern worship movement, Delirious? scores again…a great listen and great worship experience. It will have the listener flying above the universe and struggling in the depths of poverty with the least of the kingdoms of the earth. It is here hard rocking, there emotive and always vocally powerful.” – CMSpin
“…sonically adventurous…a collection of new vertical classics from the Brit rockers… There are definite possibilities for joining Our God, I Could Sing of Your Love Forever, Majesty and pretty much the rest of the Delirious? catalog as worship classics.” – Lexington Herald-Leader
“…Kingdom of Comfort makes it easy to see why Delirious? became such a hugely popular group…” – About.com
Following the release of the new album, Delirious? will continue to circumvent the globe to inspire music lovers worldwide and carry on the tradition of spiritually challenging lyrics, while pointing people to see the wonders of what God has done for them. The band has closed for the Pope in front of a million people in Germany, played for 1.2 million in India, toured with Bon Jovi and Bryan Adams and more. Receiving its second Gospel Music Association International Award last year, Delirious? traveled to at least 25 countries in 2007 alone, and will travel to Australia, UK and France before coming back to the US May 15 in Kansas City. In addition to the music, Delirious? frontman Martin Smith founded Compassionart, a charity based in Littlehampton, England and dedicated to seeing works of art generate income for the poorest of the poor.
