TIMES OF GRACE, the new project that reteams Killswitch Engage guitarist and producer extraordinaire Adam Dutkiewicz with original Killswitch Engage vocalist Jesse Leach, are offering an exclusive, free download of the song, “Strength in Numbers,” on Friday, October 15 at 4pm UK time. The song will be downloadable for 48 hours right here at www.roadrunnerrecords.co.uk. The track will then be available as a digital single after the free giveaway has expired.
“Strength in Numbers” is the 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.
