"I made absolutely sure that none of us would ever return to normality again."
- Scott Hardkiss
Hardkiss are celebrating the 20th anniversary of Delusions of Grandeur. The out-of-print album will be released digitally for the first time on May 25th, 2015. A commemorative 20th Anniversary double CD includes a 32 page booklet written by Terry Matthews of 5Magazine. This and other special offers including vinyl and The Hardkiss Vault '91 - '99 are available exclusively via a PledgeMusic campaign.
"Hardkiss’s music defies musical barriers, time and space with off-the-teabags loved-out majesty and manages to suspend the listener in a bottomless pool of fragrant intoxicants and rabbit aphrodisiac heart rhythms."
