Jesse Leach has checked in with an update on new material from Times Of Grace.

He and his Killswitch Engage bandmate Adam Dutkiewicz have been working on the follow-up to 2011’s the Hymn Of A Broken Man, with the pair confirming in August 2016 that work was underway.

Leach says he’s been listening to new demos and adds: “This is on some whole other level. This stuff is quite different than the first record. I got a whole lot of writing to do! Adam has been busy. It begins, again…”

Speaking about the project last year, Leach said: “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 ‘metalcore’ sound going on. As a matter of fact, I’m planning on not doing much aggressive vocals at all.”

Killswitch Engage have a run of tour dates over the coming months in support of their seventh studio album Incarnate.
