Delirious? recently traveled to Hyderabad, India to join dynamic evangelist Joyce Meyer and India's own Sounds of the Nations for one of the largest Christian events in India. More than 1.2 million people attending heard Delirious? play songs from its widely acclaimed new album, The Mission Bell, as well as songs from its significant repertoire of international hits. With as many as 400,000 people attending each day of the four-day gathering, hundreds of thousands made commitments to faith in Jesus Christ.
"The incredible gift that Delirious? brings to an event like this is immeasurable," says Joyce Meyer. "The ability to go from completely rock'n down the house to absolute pure worship is awesome! It was an honor to share the stage with them and look forward to doing more in the future! India will never ever be the same!"
Delirious? is also being recognized for its song on the Music Inspired by the Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe, which received a GMA Music Award nomination for Special Event Album of the Year. The band received additional nominations in the 2nd Annual CMC Music Awards for Praise & Worship Album of the Year (The Mission Bell) and Praise & Worship Artist of the Year.

In addition to the nominations, the Mission Bell cover art by artist Benjamin Savignac, was named among the 20 Best Projects of 2005 by Grafik Magazine, an internationally recognized graphic design magazine based in London, England.

The Mission Bell, which released December 26, has already received acclaim from the likes of CCM, Relevant, Worship Leader, ChristianityToday.com and numerous others. The recording continues to receive praise as critics are abuzz about the newest album from the UK's Delirious?:
"The Mission Bell is a challenge for Christians to make a difference in the world. It's an urgent call, conveyed through the use of intense, atmospheric and, at times, brooding music."

"Delirious? is back with yet another stand out album that continues to push the boundaries of modern worship music. The new songs are fresh, powerful and full of Delirious? power."
"The Mission Bell is one of the better records of the year, and a fine example of how quality musicianship and artistry can mingle with heartfelt and honest praise of God."
Fans in the U.S. will be able to hear songs from The Mission Bell for themselves as Delirious? brings its international tour to the States this April. Visit www.delirious.co.uk
