TIMES OF GRACE, the band featuring KILLSWITCH ENGAGE members Jesse Leach (vocals) and Adam Dutkiewicz (guitar), are set to release their long-awaited second album this Spring. The timetable for the LP’s arrival was revealed in a new video message (see below) and graphic on the band’s social media.
Last month, Leach said that he and Dutkiewicz were “finalizing” things for the new record’s release. He also blamed the album’s delay on the fact that 2020 was “a shitshow,” in part due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. “We just wanna make sure it comes out properly — the way that we want it to be presented, and have some good visual ideas and some good artwork,” he explained. “And we found a good home at a label. So all of that is wrapping up.”
Back in August, Dutkiewicz told the Metal Blade Live Series that he was “really excited” about the new TIMES OF GRACE material. “There’s some pretty mellow vibes on that record, for sure,” he said. “It’s definitely one of the darkest things I’ve ever written topically.”
TIMES OF GRACE entered Signature Sound studio in San Diego, California in late 2017 to begin recording material for its new LP. Sitting behind the drum kit during the sessions was Dan Gluszak, who previously played drums for TIMES OF GRACE on tour and has since been named an official member of the band.
“The Hymn Of A Broken Man” was released in January 2011 via Roadrunner Records.
