The Abbey comment on the signing: 

” We feel honoured and privileged to get to write a new chapter in the history of Season of Mist – a distinguished label that has the courage and vision to do something extraordinary. We do believe that the collaboration between Season of Mist and The Abbey is going to lead us to great things.” 

Regarding the single, the band add: 

“Our first single has all the basic The Abbey elements: big vocals, dissonant harmonies, hauntingly beautiful melodies and tempo changes. This is The Abbey’s ode against oppression and tyranny.”

A Thousand Dead Witches” is taken from The Abbey‘s upcoming debut album, “Word of Sin”, which will be released next year via Season of Mist. More info coming soon.
