|Delirious? Rings In '06 w/ Mission Bell; iTunes Exclusive
23 January 2006
British rock/worship band Delirious? is receiving a warm American welcome with the stateside release of its style-stretching new studio album, The Mission Bell.
"The Mission Bell is unafraid to challenge, chide and inspire all at the same time. From cavernous rock anthems full of swagger and scope, to intimate and at times painful confessions of failure and fear, this is worship music with teeth." -CCM Magazine
"Ten years on, front man Martin Smith has a knack for writing words and melodies that end up on the lips of a million people." -Relevant Magazine
"The most diverse they've ever been, with a sound recalling Radiohead one moment, straight-up rock with a gospel choir the next, all with elements of a stripped-down, singer-songwriter feel... They still do what they do best-worship." -Christianity Today (4.5 out of 5 Star review)
"...a soaring Brit-rock worship album and everything you'd expect from the group." -Worship Leader Magazine
"...fuelled by the unbridled passion of singer Martin Smith....they could be massive." -Q Magazine
"...a sonic feast that rivals their best work..."-Worship Musician
ChristianMusicToday.com says The Mission Bell proves "that style and substance can co-exist . . . Delirious? has managed to effectively stretch the boundaries of worship music."
The Mission Bell is led by first single "Fires Burn" currently at radio in the US and also includes the Narnia-inspired "Stronger," and other cameo appearances by Irish singer Moya Brennan and Jars of Clay guitarist Steve Mason. For complete information, check out the new Delirious? e-card.
iTunes users can purchase The Mission Bell via download and receive an exclusive acoustic version of "Paint The Town Red" FREE w/ purchase of the full album.
