Sabbath Assembly returns with their Seventh album, A Letter of Red, led by vocalist Jamie Myers (ex-Hammers of Misfortune,Wolves in the Throneroom), featuring guitarist Kevin Hufnagel (Gorguts, Dysrhythmia) original SA drummer Dave Nuss, bassist Johnny Deblase, who also played on the self-titled album, and guitarist Ron Varod (Kayo Dot, Psalm Zero, Zvi). 

New Album

A Letter of Red out April 26 , 2019

on Svart Records


A Letter of Red is the seventh album from Sabbath Assembly. The album, produced by Randall Dunn who last worked with the band on their debut Restored to One, marks a return to the shortened song form and tight production of their debut, while demonstrating ten years of songwriting prowess and lyrical advancement.

The music on The Letter of Red owes more to the galloping hard rock of the 70’s than the progressive meanderings of Rites of Passage. Dunn explains: “I tried to find the teenage occult heart of each of the musicians and center them in a place of unity around a familiar and yet futuristic sound. I imagined us all in the cosmos with 70’s hi fi headphones on riding a great winged beast airbrushed on the side of a chevy van.”

Guitarists Kevin Hufnagel (Gorguts, Dysrhythmia) and Ron Varod (Kayo Dot, Myrkur) reference Heart and Judas Priest on the album’s hard rockers, while acoustic moments bring to mind Current 93 and Jethro Tull. Vocalist Jamie Myers (ex-Hammers of Misfortune and Wolvesin the Throne Room) performs with the stripped down clarity of Peter Murphy and Siouxsie in the 80’s, bringing a true Gothic tinge to the metal riffs for a totally unique combination.

Sabbath Assembly is honored to present their seventh chapter, A Letter of Red, on April 19, and look forward to seeing you on the road in Europe in May. A final word from Dunn: “When we set out to make a Sabbath Assembly record, we set out to make magic spells and embrace a plural existence. Make no mistake - the sisters will be heard, and secularism will be brought to its knees once again by the old gods disguised as a rock band.
