Christian rock band Sanctus Real announced plans for the release of their newest album, We Need Each Other, on Feb. 12.
The band will headline a 16-day tour that begins in January and leads up to the upcoming release, and then launch a 35-city major market tour with Third Day in February.
The band will play new songs from the album during the tours, as well as fan favorites spanning its four acclaimed national studio releases.
We Need Each Other follows Sanctus Real's most successful album to date, The Face of Love, which gathered numerous accolades and continued a string of radio hits, including the No. 1 songs, "I'm Not Alright" and "Don't Give Up."
We Need Each Other follows the theme of The Face of Love, which was inspired by real-life heartache and rediscovering joy. The new album marks a completion of that healing process and is a call for unity.
"There's a longing for something bigger than oneself, a band, a song or a crowd of concertgoers," says Sanctus Real frontman Matt Hammitt. "We need to come together as the body of Christ, unifying to see God's work done through us. There's so much simple truth in the statement, 'we need each other.' We can accomplish so much more if we stand together as one."
With five No. 1 songs on the radio, that "simple truth" is resonating with radio listeners. The first single and title track from We Need Each Other has already become the band's 12th Top 5 hit, and is No. 2 and climbing on the R&R Christian CHR chart. "We Need Each Other" is also the band's mantra that permeates the new album.
