Sanctus Real Racks Up the Hits

Published: 2005-05-27
The rockers who make up Sanctus Real have reached another landmark in their career: their third number one hit on the Radio & Records's Christian Rock chart. "The Fight Song," from the band's Gospel Music Association award-winning album Fight the Tide, took the honours for Sanctus Real last week. Their first number one from the album was "Everything About You."

As Sanctus Real has been racking up the successes, they have also lost a band member this spring. Bassist Steve Goodrum left the quartet in April to pursue other interests. Sanctus has already found a replacement for Goodrum, and it comes in the form of Dan Gartley, who just got off the road with super group Relient K.

It's a good thing they lined up a new bassist straight away, because Sanctus Real will hit the road this weekend and go nonstop until the end of summer. When September rolls around the four-piece will jump onto a tour with Audio Adrenaline and carry on into the fall. There's just one Canadian stop scheduled so far; go to for more information:
