Boston based metal band Times of Grace have announced that Shadow’s Fall guitar extraordinaire Matt Bachand will be acting as the band’s touring bassist on their upcoming Euro tour. The news comes after Times Of Grace bassist Daniel Struble left the band temporarily to attend to personal matters. The band has issued the following statement,
“Losing Daniel was a blow to the TIMES OF GRACE camp, but we knew he had to do what was best for him and his family,” said Leach. “Having Matt show interest in joining the touring lineup could not have been a better fit! I have been a fan of Matt’s voice and guitar work for many years. I am honored and very stoked to have him join us on tour to play bass and sing backup vocals. Matt is a great guy, and someone Adam, Joel and I have all known for years. Personality-wise and as a musician, it clicks so well. I am certain Matt will add a great vibe and bring his own style to the live show!”
Bachand said, “I am very excited to be a part of TIMES OF GRACE. Not only will it be great to get onstage with some old friends, but I am looking forward to something new musically as this role as bassist will be a very different experience from my role as guitarist of SHADOWS FALL.”
The band’s debut album “Hymn of a Broken Man” came out in January 2011 on Roadrunner Records.
