Sonic Delusion is celebrating the release of their new album Without Warning with random acts of kindness. From shouting a stranger coffee to delivering care packages to midwives and donating firewood, fans of the band have jumped on board the #withoutwarning bandwagon to celebrate with the New Plymouth electroacoustic folk band.
"Without warning is about how quickly our circumstances can change," says Sonic Delusion's lead singer/guitarist/loop artist Andre Manella. "It's amazing how much a bit of unexpected kindness can change your day."
The Taranaki band is inviting people to share their random acts of kindness on Twitter, Facebook and Instragram using the hashtag #withoutwarning to be in to win the new album and the beer "Without Warning" - the liquid version of the album.
Without Warning is an album that pays homage to the relentless churn of circumstance - and celebrates the lucky breaks that we sometimes stumble upon. Warm and upbeat, Sonic Delusion's folk is uplifting, with inspiring stories to match. "The man who missed the boat is the story of a man who missed the fatal sailing of the Titanic," says Andre Manella. The title track and single Without Warning tips its cowboy hat to the freedom of life on the road. I don't speak French is a whimsical Latin-flavoured number, which leaps straight from its folk attire into something brightly feathered.
Sonic Delusion is celebrating with an album release tour and will be playing in Wanganui at Stellar Bar this Saturday at 7pm. Tickets are $20 from the Royal Wanganui Opera House.
