About Curse Mackey

Austin, Texas-based artist Curse Mackey is often known as singer + sample banger of industrial supergroup PIGFACE and as a frequent member of My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult. Having earned a reputation as a prominent performer and DJ in the Dark Wave and Industrial music genres, Mackey has now launched a self-titled project with his debut album INSTANT EXORCISM. The album has received coverage from Kerrang, Revolver,, and others to very positive review and features a guest appearance from Ronny Moorings, founder of Clan of Xymox.

Curse’s sound fuses post-punk, dystopian electronics with doom-fueled drones, seductive synth pulsations and industrial-strength dance beats that evoke the ghosts of early Skinny Puppy, “Twitch-era” Ministry, the darker side of New Order, Coil and the iconic projects Mackey has been a part of. ‘Instant Exorcism’ will be supported with a full US 2019 tour schedule including dates supporting My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, iconic darkwave legends Clan of Xymox and Pigface as well as appearances at Cold Waves Festival (Chicago) and Levitation Fest (Austin, TX). Mackey’s new live show is compellingly fresh and intensely captivating having toured extensively in 2018 and 2019 with shows from Texas all the way to Taipei, Taiwan.

Mackey recently received vast press coverage for a surprise fill-in for great goth legend Peter Murphy who was unable to perform at the final 40years of Bauhaus Celebration show. Mackey was personally invited by Bauhaus, Love + Rockets bass player David J to stand-in for Mr. Murphy and ended up singing four Bauhaus classics to a sold-out Orlando audience. This has led to the development of a new collaborative project between Mackey, David J and Rona Rougeheart of Austin, TX alt- electronic darlings SINE.

Curse’s participation in PIGFACE and other projects has led Mackey to collaborative opportunities with such luminaries as Ogre of Skinny Puppy, Martin Atkins of Ministry/Killing Joke, En Esch of KMFDM, Genesis P-Orridge of Psychic TV, Danny Carey of Tool, Mat Mitchell of Puscifer amongst others.

Curse Mackey’s new album INSTANT EXORCISM is considered one of the best releases of the 2019 year in the industrial, post-punk, darkwave circles.
