A lot brought Jesse and Adam back together in Times of Grace. Tribulation, the need for expression, even some boredom. The greatness of the end result cannot be denied. When Jesse calls the band's new album The Hymn of a Broken Man "a real collaborative process" you can hear the veracity of the statement in the music.

Two more parts of this interview are coming tomorrow and Thursday. The Hymn of a Broken Man is out January 18th and available for pre-order now.
