KILLSWITCH ENGAGE vocalist Jesse Leach is working on lyrics for the long-awaited new release from TIMES OF GRACE, his collaboration with KILLSWITCH ENGAGE guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz. Jesse writes on Instagram: “I enjoy carrying the knowledge that this recording will be far different from the last one.

“This one has gone down so many new roads sonically and lyrically. Hell, I haven’t even begun to demo and I am already so artistically satisfied just knowing the skeleton of this record.

“I know we all live in generation ‘I want it now,’ but I can assure you this album will take some time.

“The new stuff is shaping up to be a whole different world of sound and words. I will be using different melodic registers and less growl substituted by more ‘melodic yelling.’ The lyrics are primarily quite melancholy so far but most of my lyrics often do begin that way and find light as the process unfolds.”

Dutkiewicz recently revealed that he has demoed more than a dozen tracks for the next TIMES OF GRACE album.

TIMES OF GRACE‘s debut album, “The Hymn Of A Broken Man”, was released in January 2011 via Roadrunner Records. The CD sold around 10,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 44 on The Billboard 200 chart.

Leach told Lithium Magazine last summer that “the cool thing about TIMES OF GRACE is that it’s another outlet for us, and moving forward with that project, it’s gonna be even more different from KILLSWITCH. There’s gonna be no quote-unquote metalcore sound going on. As a matter of fact, I’m planning on not doing much aggressive vocals at all.”

Dutkiewicz and Leach originally worked together on KILLSWITCH ENGAGE‘s benchmark album, 2002’s “Alive Or Just Breathing”. That record has become definitive for an entire generation of American metal, with Leach‘s voice and uplifting lyrics serving as one of the key elements that propelled the album to “modern classic” status. Leach left KILLSWITCH ENGAGE shortly after “Alive Or Just Breathing”‘s release but rejoined the group in early 2012 following the departure of his replacement, Howard Jones.

Writing "Times of Grace" lyrics by candle and incense as one does… . I enjoy carrying the knowledge that this recording will be far different from the last one. This one has gone down so many new roads sonically and lyrically. Hell I haven't even begun to demo and I am already so artistically satisfied just knowing the skeleton of this record. I know we all live in generation "I want it now" but I can assure you this album will take some time. That being said here and there I will give brief insights (and perhaps little snippets as we get recording). For now just wanted to drop a little "hey writing stuff, yes we are making another record" type deal….. So be patient please. I will however leave you with this, the new stuff is shaping up to be a whole different world of sound and words. I will be using different melodic registers and less growl substituted by more "melodic yelling." The lyrics are primarily quite melancholy so far but most of my lyrics often do begin that way and find light as the process unfolds… that's all for now… ✌????#TimesOfGrace
