A Sneak Peak of Sanctus Real 2.0 | Posted February 09, 2016
After months of teasing following the departure of founding frontman Matt Hammitt, Sanctus Real recently announced that Dustin Lolli will be stepping in as the band's new lead vocalist. This is Love, a 3-song EP, gives us the first taste of what the new Sanctus Real will sound like. 

Lead single "This is Love" is the EP's best cut by far. The song spends most of its time in soft and contemplative territory, with thought-provoking lyrics and a soothing delivery from Lolli. It gives off artistic vibes that feel more like an indie band than standard CCM. But fans of the old "rock" Sanctus Real are treated to a pleasant surprise in the song's climactic finish, with pounding guitars and a rocking performance from Lolli making for one of the strongest finishes to a Sanctus song in years. 

"Find Me" takes a bit safer of an approach, sounding a bit more "radio ready" with a similar slow build to a more upbeat climax (not quite as strong as the first track's). "My Desire" again showcases Lolli's powerful ballad vocals with another soft cut that is a hopeful sign that this band will be all right, even if Matt Hammitt will still be missed. 

It's a bit disappointing that only the ending to "This is Love" shows signs of the band's rock roots, but Lolli's vocals are nothing short of captivating and lift this EP to be an encouraging sampler of what's to come.

The Bottom Line: Musically and creatively, Sanctus Real has managed to change lead singers and still sound incredibly good. Keep an eye out for when they drop the full-length.
