Curse Mackey

The Dark Prince of Texas Darkwave, Curse Mackey returns to the stage with his new EP
"LACERATIONS”, the first reveal from his highly anticipated​ follow up to 2019's “INSTANT EXORCISM”.​​
Mackey, well-known in industrial music circles as vocalist for industrial supergroup PIGFACE as well as his work wth My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Clan of Xymox and SINE is one of the most notable industrial/darkwave artists from Austin, Texas.

“Instant Exorcism combines the twisted, dancey elements of industrial and the raw, melancholy emotion of post-punk into an amalgam which is perfect for both the dance floor and deep introspection.”

“Curse Mackey is everywhere in the electronic-industrial underground…an instance dance-floor classic!”

“Taking the stage, you would have never guessed that something coming from one man with a few synths, could sound so huge. Crouching towards us with massive stage presence equal parts Peter Murphy and Iggy Pop, Curse Mackey cast a spell on the crowd.…primal, raw, and riveting."
