Afterwards, Mackey will be performing at Levitation Fest in Austin, TX on November 8 as direct support for David J. (Bauhaus, Love & Rockets); other performers at the festival include SINE, The Flaming Lips, Chelsea Wolfe, and John Cale among others. Mackey and SINE had previously acted as the sole opening act for the final date of David J.’s tour with Bauhaus band mate Peter Murphy; due to illness, Murphy was unable to perform, with Mackey and SINE’s Rona Rougeheart filling in to complete the 40 Years of Bauhaus Ruby Celebration on April 4.

As if that weren’t enough, Mackey has also now been officially announced as a member of the lineup for the upcoming Pigface tour; a regular member and contributor to the eminent industrial supergroup, Mackey is slated to perform with the band in all but the Dallas and New Orleans dates due to a prior scheduling conflict; the other members of the Pigface touring lineup will be announced soon, this tour marking the band’s first in 14 years. He also hints at a secret project with details yet to be announced. A full listing of tour dates can be found on the artist’s website.

In related news, Peter Murphy was rushed to a local New York City hospital on August 13 having suffered a heart attack. According to Cardiologist Jason Song, MD of Lenox Hill Hospital, Murphy was “admitted for treatment of a myocardial infarction. He had two stents placed in his right coronary artery and was started on medications to manage his heart condition,” with no further details to be revealed due to HIPAA regulations. Murphy was in the midst of a residency series at Le Poisson Rouge; due to his condition, the remaining shows will be postponed to later dates to be determined. Those who have purchased tickets can have them transferred to the rescheduled date or request a refund by sending an e-mail to Le Poisson Rouge by August 30.
