TIMES OF GRACE Feat. KILLSWITCH ENGAGE Members Release Official Video For "Medusa"

Times Of Grace, featuring Adam Dutkiewicz and Jesse Leach of Killswitch Engage, return after a 10-year hiatus with their second album, Songs Of Loss And Separation, out July 16 via the band's own imprint label, Wicked Good Records, distributed by ADA Worldwide. Pre-order it here, and check out the band's newly-relaunched D2C webstore, with brand new merch and exclusive limited vinyl offerings, here.

Today, the band has shared the video for the new song "Medusa." Watch the video below.

The band's debut album The Hymn Of A Broken Man arrived in 2011, nearly a decade after Leach's exit from Killswitch Engage, the pivotal New Wave of American Heavy Metal band the duo co-founded with friends in 1999. The first music from Times of Grace materialized during Dutkiewicz's arduous recovery from near-crippling back surgery. A collection of songs the multi-instrumentalist and producer knew would suit his once and future bandmate.

Now, 10 years after Times of Grace first surfaced, the eagerly awaited follow-up arrives.

Comfortably stretched beyond the parameters of what came before, without sacrificing an ounce of integrity, Times of Grace weave between pensive, heavy, midtempo rock, riffs, and atmosphere. The pair's vocal interplay makes for a rich, dense, and enthralling concoction, powering through various trips through dark nights of the soul and mind-expanding excursions into the wild. Songs Of Loss And Separation benefits wildly from the powerhouse performance of ex-Envy On The Coast drummer Dan Gluszak, who toured behind the first album and is now an official member of the band.

The sprawling second album from Times of Grace, with a stunning album cover painted by John McCormack and album art layout by Tom Bejgrowicz, channels a dissonant, menacing, and unrelenting depression. Haunting romanticism and deep spiritual yearning collide in beautiful melancholy. It's a diverse but singular statement, like the most beloved work of classic bands. Songs Of Loss And Separation, insistent in its bluesiness, bleeds distortion and emotion, like a nerve, exposed.

Simply put, Times Of Grace are a revelation.
