February 2, 2011 by  
Filed under Contests, Daily Music News

Times of Grace (the new project from Adam Duktiewicz and Jesse Leach) recently debuted their album The Hymn of a Broken Man to rave reviews!

A huge departure from what we’ve experienced from either of them in the past this project allows them to explore their other musical passions and has been described as “exploring the the depths of human misery with artful desperation, muscular dexterity, heavy aggression and gorgeous melody. The band’s inaugural presentation is as rich and diverse as life itself, holding fast to the promise of strength through adversity. Jesse Leach’s powerful, emotive, soulful, spirit-filled delivery – instantly recognizable – has never been stronger, backed by Adam Duktiewicz’s trailblazing instrumentation.”  Whoa!

Now is your chance to check them out live! We’ve got a pair of tickets to their show at The Paradise in Boston on February 27th (which looks to be their only New England appearance on this tour?) to give away to you?  Who wants them!  (If you’re not in the Boston area, never fear, the band has a slew of tour dates all over the place so check the full listing here.)

To enter send an email to staff@theywillrockyou.com with subject “Times of Grace” – include your name, email address, phone number and mailing address.  One winner will be selected at random and notified on February 24, 2011.

Killswitch Engage Update – Tour To Go On

February 17, 2010 by  
Filed under Daily Music News

Shortly into their latest headlining tour Killswitch Engage vocalist Howard Jones had to unexpectedly leave, leading to a flurry of rumors and questions about the status of the tour and the band. The band has further issued the following statement addressing the matter, saying: “It became overwhelmingly obvious to all of us around Howard that he is in no condition to be on tour right now and that he needed to get off the road and get himself better. It’s a personal matter and while we understand everyone’s curiosity and concern for Howard and the band, we appreciate everyone respecting Howard’s privacy at this time.”

Longtime friend Phil Labonte of All That Remains was able to fill in and help out the band for a few shows and it appears as though he will be filling in for the remainder of the tour, which runs through March. KsE endured and survived a similar situation in the past, where guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz was forced to sit out a tour due to a back injury. KsE also said, “We seriously considered cancelling the tour since we don’t want to give fans that paid good money anything less than KsE at full-strength. But after trying a few shows with Phil, and after feeling the love and support that we were getting from the crowd, it became increasingly apparent to us that the shows came across as fun and unique, and the fans seemed to be enjoying it.  We quickly realized that we had to keep going and that we couldn’t possibly stop.”  Refunds are available for any fans that have already purchased tickets, but as the band said, this tour will offer a chance to experience KsE in a unique way that you won’t be able to witness again.

Furthermore, KsE would like to thank all fans who came out to support them during this difficult stretch, exclaiming “We really do feel that our fans are the best fans in the world.” The band also thanked Labonte for pitching in, saying “We can’t thank Phil enough for helping us out when we needed it the most.”

For a taste of KsE with Labonte on vocals, check this footage from the Baltimore show this past weekend check out the video below:
