Killswitch Engage and Times Of Grace guitarists Adam Dutkiewicz and Joel Stroetzel have officially signed on with Laney Amplification. The duo will now be using Laney’s Ironheart range of cabinets and amps for live performances.
Both guitarists have commented on the endorsement. Dutkiewicz said that he is thrilled to have signed on with the highly respected company. “Very excited to be on board with the Laney family! The Ironheart sounds musical, punchy, and loud…a great live head for sure. One sick riff box!!!”
Stroetzel was equally as enthused, “Laney amps sound killer! The Ironheart is clean, focused and heavy all at the same time. Love it!”
It seems that Laney share the sentiments of the two axeman. Artist Relations manager, Chris Taylor had the following to say. “Adam and Joel represent the present and future of metal, a genre that was started with the sound of Tony Iommi’s Laney amplifiers in 1970. Having Killswitch Engage and Times of Grace using the Ironheart range is a perfect match; pioneers of modern metal with the perfect metal amplifier.”
Dutkiewicz and Stroetzel are currently using the Ironheart’s as they make their way around Australia with Times Of Grace, as part of the Soundwave Festival. Fan-filmed footage of the band in action can be viewed below.
