Last year Delirious announced Kingdom of Comfort would be its final studio CD, though the breakup announcement also came with the promise of a farewell tour. This week marks the group's official finale in America, October 23-24 at the Dallas Convention Center as part of the Fire Storm Conference, followed by an international trek. Besides the final concerts, the group also gears up for the November 17 CD History Makers: Greatest Hits, spanning worship classics like "I Could Sing of Your Love Forever," "Rain Down," "My Glorious," and "Did You Feel the Mountains Tremble?"

Band members have said the band had simply run its course, and are gearing up for some relaxation after 16 years on the road and 14 albums. "The Delirious story was only ever about responding to whatever it was God was doing through music that abandoned itself to him," the group said in a combined statement, though members will move onto other artistic projects, including frontman Martin Smith continuing his role in CompassionArt.
