15 February 2013 - Nashville, Tenn - Sanctus Real just hit the top spot at radio for the eighth time in their career. "Promises," the latest single from their newly released sixth studio project Run, grabbed the No.1 slot at Hot AC this week. With a No. 1 hit single, a brand new CD and a new headlining tour that kicked off this week, the boys of Sanctus Real are certainly enjoying this moment in their career.

For its first week out, Run is already at No. 5 on the Top Christian/Gospel Digital Albums Chart, No. 7 on Billboard Top Contemporary Christian Album Chart and No. 10 on the Overall Billboard Christian/Gospel Album chart. The project was produced by Chris Stevens (TobyMac), Jason Ingram (Brandon Heath), and Seth Mosley (Newsboys), and is the follow-up to their 2010 GRAMMY® nominated Pieces of A Real Heart, which featured their career-breaking hit "Lead Me."

Announcing their headlining nationwide tour, "The Promises Tour," earlier this year, Sanctus Real kicked it off last night in Alabama. Running through May 19, the tour offers a VIP Experience with Sanctus Real, which includes a VIP pre-show entrance and priority check in, an exclusive autograph and Q&A with the band, as well as collector's edition merchandise.

Tour dates for "The Promises Tour" are listed below. Be sure to visit SanctusReal.com for the most updated tour information, and to view their music video for "Promises" click here.
