TIMES OF GRACE's 'Live In Love' Video Sheds Light On RISE ABOVE FOUNDATION

"Live In Love", the new video from TIMES OF GRACE the band featuring former KILLSWITCH ENGAGE singer Jesse Leach alongside current KILLSWITCH ENGAGE guitarist Adam Dutkiewicz can be seen below. But this isn't your average hard rock clip. Rather, TIMES OF GRACE uses this medium to shed light on the Rise Above Foundation and that organization's important cause.

The Rise Above Foundation is a nonprofit dedicated to providing Massachusetts children in foster care with enriching activities, opportunities and experiences. Given the hopeful message encased in the lyrics, the song is a perfect complement to the efforts of the Rise Above Foundation.

The "Live In Love" video shows the band walking through the streets of Massachusetts, singing the song and splicing footage of those in need throughout. The striking, heart-wrenching images further demonstrate the point that the band is trying to make about help and hope.

In addition to close-up shots of worn faces and hands, which serve to make the plight of those in need incredibly real and tangible, the video also displays statistics about people in foster care, rehab and on the streets. The video opens its arms to the homeless, the elderly and the children who are at risk.

Commented Leach: "I am excited for this video to come out. I feel like we did a different approach to the typical performance video. I enjoyed the shoot and the day we spent driving around to different locations. I feel strongly about the message of compassion and love. I hope we are able to help change a child's life through weriseabove.org or at the very least inspire others to reach outside themselves and make a difference. I want nothing more than for our music to have a positive impact in this world. One love to all!"

Director Tim Dennesen also weighed in, saying, "'Live In Love' sends a powerful message. Anthony Jarvis, the director of photography, and I wanted to give raw visuals to this message to help spread awareness. It was a mystical quest, and a lot of fun to work with TIMES OF GRACE."

Rise Above was equally thrilled about partnering with the band to spread their message and their mission, saying, "We're honored that TIMES OF GRACE identified Rise Above as the Massachusetts charity to spotlight in this video. Working with a band with strong roots in Massachusetts is a great way to advocate for the youth in foster care that we serve. We are proud to be part of such a powerful effort to bring critical social issues to the surface."
