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 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.
