Times Of Grace (Killswitch Engage) Share “The Burden Of Belief” Virtual Performance Video

Times Of Grace, the band featuring Killswitch Engage’s Adam Dutkiewicz and Jesse Leach, have shared a virtual performance video for their song “The Burden Of Belief.” This track is from the group’s latest album “Songs Of Loss And Separation.”

Jesse Leach commented

“‘Burden‘ was one of the songs we originally thought really represented our newer album’s sound overall. I could also always hear it like an acoustic song in my head, similar to ‘The Forgotten One‘. Perhaps someday we will do just that, but in the meantime, an ‘at home’ performance of the song felt like a cool thing to put out there. I really enjoyed setting a vibe and just belting it out. The song has such a deep meaning for me — hell, the whole album does. But there was always something about this song from the first time I heard the demos.”

Adam Dutkiewicz added:

“This is a version of ‘The Burden Of Belief‘ performed as it would be live, but done separately from our homes. Obviously, we’ll need a bass player and second guitarist to help out for the real deal. We hope to bring this song, and many more, to your town at some point in the future.”

Times Of Grace (Killswitch Engage) Premiere “Far From Heavenless” Video

Times Of Grace, the band featuring Killswitch Engage’s Adam Dutkiewicz and Jesse Leach, have premiered a new video for their song “Far From Heavenless.” This track is from their latest album “Songs Of Loss And Separation.”

Dutkiewicz commented:

“I really enjoyed creating this song. It addresses losing faith in something — whether it be organized religion, a person, or even society itself. Judgement is an alienating thing. The video was a lot of fun to make…many thanks to Nick Hipa for coming up with the vision and dedication to get it done.”

Leach added:

“This song is a deep cut for me. It reveals the dark undercurrent of the corruption and hypocrisy that can be found in some organized religion. It’s about the backlash, criticism, and casting out of those who question and seek more than what is given and spoon-fed. On one side of the message is love and acceptance; on the other is condemnation and alienation. It is one in a series of songs written about an undying thirst and desire for a deeper truth. There is beauty to religion and ritual. But there are some who use this deep conviction for personal gain, manipulation, and even evil.”

Times Of Grace (Killswitch Engage) Premiere “Mend You” Video

Times Of Grace, the band featuring Killswitch Engage’s Adam Dutkiewicz and Jesse Leach, have premiered a new video for their song “Mend You.” This track is from the group’s new album “Songs Of Loss And Separation,” which was released today (July 16).

Leach commented:

“‘Mend You’ is about finding yourself at a loss for words. It’s about the struggle to come to terms with an unraveling and falling apart. It is also about finding the will to carry on and stay loyal to your own heart, even when no one else seems to understand what you are going through. It’s a song about the journey of finding a way to mend wounds and in time find a deeper sense of self love.”

Dutkiewicz, continued:

“‘Mend You’ is one of my favorites since the lyrics can mean different things to different people — and I know these hit our drummer Dan at an important time in his life.”

Dan Glezak added:

“This is probably the most emotionally-charged song on the record for me. Adam sent me a mix and I felt the instrumental section in the bridge could use a sample. I remembered a voice note that I sent to someone, which was saved on my phone, and it fell perfectly in line with Jesse’s lyrics. Initially, I was scared to use something so personal, but the guys liked it, so it stuck. It’s still really hard for me to hear this song but it’s one of my favorites.”

Times Of Grace (Killswitch Engage) Premiere New Song “Rescue”

Times Of Grace, the band featuring Killswitch Engage’s Adam Dutkiewicz and Jesse Leach, have premiered a new song titled “Rescue.” This track is from the group’s new album “Songs Of Loss And Separation,” which will be released on July 16.

Leach commented:

“This is a more uptempo and full on positive song in comparison to the rest of this diverse, heartfelt, painful and deep album.

I haven’t been more excited for anything in my career. Like it, hate it, love it it’s truly a labor of deep love and catharsis. Proud of this song as it is truly a raw and honest song about finding new love.

Love isn’t always easy or simple but if it is real it is always worth the effort and dedication. This song is about finding a shelter from the storm, that light in the darkness and the will and strength to keep on moving forward!”

Times Of Grace (Killswitch Engage) Premiere “Medusa” Video

Times Of Grace, the band featuring Killswitch Engage’s Adam Dutkiewicz and Jesse Leach, have premiered a new video for their new song “Medusa.” This track is from the group’s new album “Songs Of Loss And Separation,” which will be released on July 16.

Dutkiewicz commented:

“‘Medusa’ is one of the heavier tracks on the record. It definitely keeps within the theme of the record since it’s about a broken/abusive relationship. We hope you guys dig it.”

Leach added:

“‘Medusa’ is about betrayal, abuse, and deceit. It’s a story about the dark side of the soul and the struggle to tear away from those who feed off of your heart. When faced with these types of people and situations, there is a battle to not allow it to destroy a part of your soul and change you. This song is a testimony of that internal warfare of killing of the beast and taming the demons that remain in the aftermath. It’s about finding a way to keep your heart and your spirit alive after being broken and beaten down.”

Leach said the following about the new song:

“This song is the spark of the oncoming fire. It foreshadows the journey of this album. This song is an unveiling of who we, Times Of Grace, have become after all of these years. This is a testimony of falling apart, losing faith, letting go, and the desire to kill and purge the past. It is the unraveling, the catharsis and the rebirth. So it begins….”

Dutkiewicz added:

“It almost feels strange finally releasing the songs on this record, especially this one. I started writing this song over 10 years ago, so it’s been around for quite some time. I really hope you guys dig it, and I hope we will get the opportunity to play it for you guys live someday. Thanks, everyone!”

Jesse Leach Says Times Of Grace Have Found A “Good” Label Home For Their New Album

Jesse Leach (Killswitch Engage) has shared an update on the new Times Of Grace album. The frontman said the following

“We are finalizing up stuff. Hopefully by the end of this year and early next year, we’ll start previewing music and stuff.”

“Obviously, this year has just been a shitshow. 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. And we found a good home at a label. So all of that is wrapping up.”

Jesse Leach On New Times Of Grace Album: “I Sincerely Think It May Be Our Best Work As Musicians”

Jesse Leach (Killswitch Engage) has taken to social media to offer another update on the new Times Of Grace album. According to the frontman, the record “may be [their] best work as musicians.”

Leach said the following:

“This passion project that is the brain child of Adam D has taken a lot of time to be reanimated. The most recent recordings took years to complete. I am honored to be a part of this. It allows me to push in different directions stylistically as well as have a truly collaborative body of work with a brilliant mind like Adam.

We worked on music in between the chaos of our touring lives for this next one. New music has been completed we are just awaiting some last minute tweaking from Adams painstakingly precise audio obsessions then some mastering to finalize the songs.

We made enough music for an album and then some. We are in the works on deciding how to release it as it is a precious and important milestone for us both. I have listened to the new music many times over on various occasions and I sincerely think it may be our best work as musicians. That and it further pushes us in a separate and distinct place away from associations sonically with @killswitchengage.

It will still be some time until we iron out the details during this strange time for music and art. I know some of you have been ever so patient and we are truly grateful for all the love and support! 🙏🏼

In the meantime here’s a throwback to a quarantine version we did.

I supposed the hype train continues on… soon friends…I truly hope we get our music out soon… thanks for giving a damn!
