Following the release of Metamorphism – the third LP by Baltimore’s synthpunk/doomwave duo CURSE – via Fake Crab Records in late October, a new video for the album’s “Cassini” has been issued through an exclusive premiere at Post-Punk. The premiere takes place as CURSE continues their massive tour in support of the album, now in its final two weeks.
Metamorphism is a departure from prior CURSE material, musically and thematically. With eight expansive new songs, the record conceptually explores man’s effect on his environment, and how it will be recorded in the geological record. The drums and vocals were recorded at Tempo House Studios by Craig Bowen, the rest of the album recorded by the band, mixed by the band’s Logan Terkelsen, mastered at Mobtown Studios by Mat Leffler-Schulman, and completed with artwork and design by G. Ray Mak.
The appropriately psychedelic video for “Cassini” was filmed by KC Oden and edited by Johnny Rogers. With its public premiere, Post-Punk writes how the video, “depicts an outer-worldy space exploration of unknown territory,” calling the Metamorphism album itself, “a cataclysm of different genres of music, from melodic synth to noise-infused grindcore. Reaching from such influences allow the duo of Jane Vincent and Logan Terkelsen to create a lush, grandiose album that is unlike much else.”

CURSE maintains performing on their extensive two-month-long tour across North America in support of the Metamorphism LP. Following shows with Pinkish Black, Wolf Eyes, and more in recent days, the band will continue through the Gulf and Southeastern states and up the East Coast, closing the tour on November 20th in Washington, DC. CURSE has also locked an official hometown release show for Metamorphism on Saturday, November 30th with Darsombra and others.

CURSE is the work of Jane Vincent and Logan Terkelsen. They came from the disparate worlds of grindcore, experimental electronic music, and goth bands to form this two-piece outfit, which consists of live electronics and keyboards, and both live and programmed drums. Since their 2011 inception, the duo has recorded three full-length albums, four EPs, and two split 7” EPs, one with Street Sects, and the other a four-way split with all Baltimore-based acts that are at least half female members, including Big Mouth, Wet Brain, and Hive Bent.
The CURSE duo has been touring the United States, Mexico, and Canada extensively since their formation, along the way having played with countless notable bands including Pharmakon, Youth Code, Clipping, The Body, and many others.
