Brentwood, TN. (Top40 Charts/ Sparrow Records) - With its acclaimed new album WE NEED EACH OTHER now in stores, Ohio-based rockers Sanctus Real join Third Day
for a spring concert tour that begins March 6 in Charleston, South Carolina.
Led by the No 1 title track, WE NEED EACH OTHER is generating the best reviews of Sanctus Real' s already well-honored young career. CCM Magazine says it's 'more than just the band' s best release; it is one of the most melodic Christian pop albums to come along in quite some time... stunning production... flawless performance.' ChristianMusicToday.com calls it 'easily Sanctus Real' s best... jam-packed with enough hooks to seep deep into your cerebrum for weeks.' CMSpin.com deems it' a wonderful addition to Sanctus Real' s growing body of fabulous work and a highlight of 2008.'
On the brink of the tour with Third Day, JesusFreakHideout.com has posted an inspiring new interview with Sanctus Real lead singer Matt Hammitt about what it' s like to now perform regularly alongside artists-from tobyMac to Delirious?-whose posters used to adorn his walls as a teenager.
Sanctus Real released its national debut via Sparrow Records (EMI) in late 2002. Since then the band has charted a half dozen No 1 radio singles including ' Everything About You,' 'I'm Not Alright,' and a cover of U2' s ' Beautiful Day.' The group also won a Dove Award for Modern Rock/Alternative Album of the Year (FIGHT THE TIDE) and toured last fall with Christian music headliner Steven Curtis Chapman.
