Times of Grace, the new project that reteams Killswitch Engage guitarist and producer extraordinaire Adam Dutkiewicz with original KsE vocalist Jesse Leach, are offering an exclusive, free download of the song, “Strength in Numbers,” on Friday, October 15 at 11 AM ET. The song will be downloadable for 48 hours at www.roadrunnerrecords.com and will be available for purchase digitally on October 19.
“Strength in Numbers” is the dynamic first taste of the band’s debut, The Hymn of a Broken Man, which is due in stores on January 18, 2011. Times of Grace is the second go-round for Dutkiewicz and Leach, who enjoyed incredible collaborative chemistry on KsE’s definitive debut, 2002’s Alive or Just Breathing. Times of Grace doesn’t revisit the pair’s fruitful past; rather, it finds them taking a creative left turn away from what they’ve previously done, without diluting their signature styles as they explore new musical terrain. There’s an old adage that says the only way out is through, and with Times of Grace, the singer and guitarist were able to use the vehicle of music to overcome and work their way through personal struggles.
Times of Grace just shot the video for “Strength in Numbers” with director Robby Starbuck just outside of Pittsburgh, PA. The video will make its debut imminently.
