Killswitch Engage are rocking as strong as ever with frontman Jesse Leach returning to the band, but the seeds of the reunion may have been planted much sooner with guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz playing with Leach in the band Times of Grace. With Killswitch returning in a major way, Leach has addressed the status of his and Dutkiewicz's other band in a new Q&A video he's posted online.
Dirt Fest 2011 performers Times of Grace stopped by the Banana studio yesterday on the way to the next gig on their tour. We were lucky enough to get an exclusive unplugged performance from the guys in- studio. Here is Times of Grace performing 'The Forgotten One'.
Dirt Fest, the festival traditionally known for bringing national and local metal to the stage, is branching out to all facets of rock music this year with more national bands than ever before. Dirt Fest 2011 hits the Birch Run Expo Center in Michigan August 13th, and boasts acts like All That Remains, Times of Grace, Evans Blue, Pop Evil, and about 50 other national and local rock bands.
Many are still unfamiliar with the band Times of Grace, but almost everyone knows the band's predecessor; Killswitch Engage. The hard rock/metal outfit features Jessie Leach and Adam D. of Killswitch and they recently added bassist Matt Bachand of Shadows Fall to the roster.
