Lead singer and frontman of Sanctus Real, Matt Hamitt, has made the difficult decision to leave the band after an abundant twenty-year run. Matt said the decision came after “traveling far and wide singing [their] song ‘Lead Me’…” alongside much prayer and discussion with the family and the band.

Sanctus Real will say their farewells to Hamitt this fall after their upcoming “Farewell To A Friend Tour.” Matt plans to continue making music as a solo artist with the intention of investing the lives of his family and others back home.

The band’s label, Sparrow Records, plans to release a Greatest Hits compilation from Sanctus Real this fall, which will include a brand new Single.
