Chuck Mosley has been reported dead at least three times in his life, but he says, “In reality, it’s only happened once.”
Now in the second year of his Reintroduce Yourself tour, which includes “a mix of old songs going back to the Haircuts That Kill days up through new material no more than a month old,” Chuck’s stubborn resilience has kept his career going through many phases. Currently playing out as a “semi-acoustic” four piece (including Cris Morgan on guitar, Joshua Nelson on bass, and Douglas Esper on percussion), Chuck is still challenging the boundaries of musical genres.
Last year saw VUA, who Chuck handles vocals/guitar duties in, release, Demos For Sale, on EMP Records (a label run by David Ellefson of Megadeth and Thom Hazaert), he sang and played guitar on the latest from indie group Indoria, even recording an early version of his song “Bella Donna” for their EP, You’ll Never Make The Six. He also reunited with his old friends from Faith No More for two shows to celebrate the re-release of We Care A Lot, which cracked the Billboard top 200, thirty one years after its initial release..
This year, EMP will reissue Cement’s The Man With The Action Hair, which was shelved just before its release due to a van accident that left Chuck with a broken back, unable to tour for over a year. The album was remastered by Bill Metoyer and features new artwork by Pip Logan.
Chuck also assumed lead vocal duties for Primitive Race, who will release their second disc, Soul Pretender, this November through Metropolis. The album also features founding member Chris Kniker, a formidable record executive producer/producer for the likes of Lords of Acid, Tweaker, Prong, RevCo, KMFDM, and more. Kniker is joined by Dale Crover (Melvins), Mark Gemini Thwaite (Peter Murphy, The Mission, Tricky), Erie Loch (Wiccid, Blownload) and the aforementioned Chuck Mosley. Primitive Race recently found themselves embroiled in an online scandal with pop sensation and form child star Corey Feldman, who felt compelled to block them on Twitter.
While playing extensively through the U.S., the U.K., and France, Chuck spit out a dozen or so new songs, which are being fine-tuned in preparation for an upcoming recording session with renowned producer Matt Wallace (Maroon 5, Mushroomhead, Deftones).
When asked about producing Chuck’s new songs, Mr. Wallace said, “I’m fucking thrilled to have the opportunity to work with Chuck again. I’ve always been a die hard fan of the honesty in his lyrics and his deceptively simple melodies that always become earworms and soulworms.”
