Delirious To Call It Quits After 2009

SPARROW RECORDS band DELIRIOUS announced that it is taking a break from recording and touring after 2009. The band will keep its commitments through 2009.
The decision was sparked by lead vocalist MARTIN SMITH's request to be released from the band to pursue his work with COMPASSIONART and to be at home more with his wife ANNA and his children. The band members honored this request and made a decision together to end this chapter of their lives.
"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," said the band members collectively. "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 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."
