Interview: Jesse Leach

January 12, 2011

I interviewed ex-Killswitch Engage now Times Of Grace vocalist Jesse Leach, for The Linc.

It’s been one of the most anticipated reformations in metal in recent years, the ex-vocalist of metalcore titans Killswitch Engage, Jesse Leach, teaming up with his former bandmate Adam Dutkiewicz. Having not played together for over eight years, the duo’s new band Times Of Grace are set to release their debut album “The Hymn Of A Broken Man” on Roadrunner Records on January 18th.

The band is the brainchild of Dutkiewicz, who started writing the album in his head from his hospital bed in London after receiving emergency back surgery. When he returned to America, that’s when Jesse received the call. “[Adam] said ‘Hey man I wrote a record and I really want you to sing on it’ so of course immediately I was just elated. I was like ‘Wow, that’s amazing. Of course, of course!’” said Leach.
