Sanctus Real No 1 At Radio With 'Don't Give Up'

Brentwood, TN. (Top40 Charts/ Sparrow Records) - 2006's most played artist at CHR radio (R&R), Sanctus Real, continues its string of hits with its fifth No. 1 song, 'Don't Give Up,' and it's second No. 1 from its critically acclaimed and fan favorite album, The Face of Love. The song landed on top of both the R&R and CRW CHR charts last week and follows the multi-format hits, 'The Face of Love' and 'I'm Not Alright.'

'ĄDon't Give Up' really connects with people of all ages and backgrounds that are struggling with relationships, jobs and just the pursuit of everyday life,' says Sanctus Real front man, Matt Hammitt. 'The song was inspired by close friends of ours that made difficult decisions to end their marriages. I'm not here to judge those decisions, but as a band we want to be a voice for lasting love and commitment in a world where breaking vows is as common as taking them.'

Sanctus Real will be playing all three of its hits from The Face of Love, as well as fan favorites spanning it's three national studio releases, as the band continues it's headline 'The Face of Love' tour featuring NEEDTOBREATHE and This Beautiful Republic.
