Curse Mackey Submerge (f/ Clan of Xymox)

Curse Mackey is a very prominent figure in the word of darkwave, post punk and industrial, mostly known through the industrial greats, PIGFACE, and his time with My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult. The artist initiated the solo project under his own name a couple of years ago, and released the album Instant Exorcism to very positive reactions. 

Ahead of the anticipated follow up to his first full length which is expected Fall 2021, Mackey is to unveil a series of summer releases featuring remixes, unheard B-sides, live videos and new, original artwork. The first of those is a new take on Submerge including Clan of Xymox frontman, Ronny Moorings, with whom Curse recently toured, and who also plays guitar on the track. The single comes with a club remix by Chase Dobson (Tycho, Neon Cities, Cellar Graves), and a remix of another Instant Exorcism track, Dystopian Dope, done by Martin King (DogTablet, Test Dept. Pigface).

Mackey comments: “The club mix of Submerge was created as tribute to all of the darkwave/industrial/goth DJs out there who have kept the music playing during the shutdown. This is a track meant to be played loud when the darkwave clubs of the world can reopen. Chase Dobson really captured the spirit of the original version while elevating it from it’s mid-tempo post-punk industrial feel into a Darkwave dance floor anthem and Ronny’s guitar just soars across the top….I feel like a reemergence is taking place for music, both as a connective spirit amongst fans around the world as we start to see glimmers of hope on the horizon for live events, and for me on a personal, artistic level. I’ve been quite insulated, lost in my head and deeply involved in the creation of my follow up album. I needed to resurface and come up for some air. This single is a vital step towards emerging into the future of this new strange world we have been presented with and a moment to reflect on the Instant Exorcism album experience in the here and now.
