Times of Grace: New Album Coming This Spring
As you likely inferred from the headline, Times of Grace, the long-running side project of Killswitch Engage vocalist Jesse Leach and guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz (dating back to when Leach was in between stints in Killswitch), will release a new album this spring.
The band’s last record, The Hymn of a Broken Man, came out ten years ago today. They’ve been teasing the follow-up since February of 2017, but didn’t announce the completion of the album until this past June.
At that time, Leach said of the album:
“We have enough songs for a full-length record and then enough songs for an EP afterwards, if we choose to… We’ve decided to separate the two batches of songs. It’s done and done, and I’m extremely proud of it, and I think it’s probably the best record that Adam and I have ever done in our careers.
“Not only because it’s something we’re proud of lyrically and what it stands for, and it’s much different from the first record — I just think because it’s diverse. It shows a little bit more of a rock side, a little bit more of a stoner, post-metal side, it shows more blues. It gave us freedom to just do whatever we wanted to do.”
Whether or not they end up releasing an LP and an EP remains to be seen, but one way or the other, we’re getting new ToG soon.
You’ll know more when we do…
