Delirious? release their second single 'It's OK' from their Top 20 album 'Mezzamorphis' on February 21. The single has already proved it's worth in America where it has been chosen for use on Fox TV's national series 'Get Real'.

One thing Delirious aren't in this video is deliriously happy, in fact they're quite the opposite. Half way through the video light shines upon them and things start to look up.

One of the most popular Christian rock groups in Britain, Delirious? was formed in early 1996 as the worship band at a monthly outreach sponsored by Arun Community Church of Littlehampton, West Sussex.

After the issue of two independent worship releases, the group began gigging around the area as well and formed their own Furious? label. Furious? released an EP, a live album, and then the band's 1997 studio debut King of Fools.

Delirious received a pleasant shock later that year when the single 'Deeper' hit the Top 20, a feat never previously achieved by openly religious UK rock band. The band signed a contract with EMI, and in 1998 released 'The Cutting Edge', a double-disc compilation of their early worship recordings.

US label Sparrow and Chordant signed the band for American distribution, and released 'King of Fools' again in May 1998. Mezzamorphis, their Virgin label debut, followed in July 1999, it entered the chart at No. 13 and they sold out Brixton Academy and Glasgow Barrowlands. They also toured America, playing to more than 150,000 people along the way.

Interesting Facts:
'Men Behaving Badly' star Neil Morrissey is a big fan of the band. He was introduced to the band when he met them by chance on Venice Beach in Los Angeles.

He was strolling around when two English guys approached him and said they loved the 'Men Behaving Badly' Christmas show. After a brief chat the band invited him out that night, he partied with them until the early hours at a showbiz party in a Hollywood mansion. They kept in touch with each other and Neil even introduced them onstage at last years Glastonbury Festival.
