Killswitch Engage's Jesse Leach

Jesse Leach Gives Update On New Times Of Grace Album


0

Killswitch Engage frontman Jesse Leach has shared an update on the long-gestating new album from Times Of Grace. That side project finds Leach joined by fellow Killswitch Engage member Adam Dutkiewicz and has slowly been moving forward over the years. Speaking via social media today (September 19th,) he spoke of his struggle with properly expressing himself on the album and his hopes to finish his parts during an upcoming recording session:

“Looking at this photo it feels like a lifetime ago since the last time @times_of_grace_music played. I even look so much different now than back in those days all bloated and perpetually drunk…The new music has been complete for a while now just waiting for me to finish vocals. Adam D has been beyond patient for me to get through what seems like many obstacles, major life changes and more time than I’d like to admit it has taken me to face my demons long enough to write.

The lyrics on this current album we are slowly working on are the deep, painful and soul searching type that can not be forced or faked. In fact even some of my most cherished ones thus far have not been up to par and I must dig deeper and deeper to find the proper words to convey what needs to be said. I want to thank my brother and musical soul mate Adam for his undying patience and sheer belief in my abilities.

Even in times when I’ve doubted if I have enough snuff to keep up with the incredible drive and talent he has graciously reminded me I am worthy. I would also like to thank the 3rd official member of this project @holycrapzombies [Dan Gluszak] for his seriously amazing skills as a drummer and musician. He has been a close friend of ours since we toured with him as our drummer.

He sounds absolutely phenomenal on this album! He had completed his drum parts over a year ago now and has been patiently waiting for the completion of vocals. Packing my bags to head to California for what I hope to be the last of two sessions to get this record done. I hope and pray I am able to produce and perform what is needed to make this album everything I feel it can be.

No teasers here just a little note from me to let you know the wheels are still in fact in motion and I am beyond honored to be a part of this project and band despite my mental and musical shortcomings and countless disbelief in myself. This one will be for the broken and wounded, this is your album…”
