Primitive Race To Donate Proceeds Of Album Sales In Chuck Mosley’s Name


Primitive Race have announced that they will be donating 100% of their 2018 album sales of their latest effort “Soul Pretender” to MusiCares in the name of their late vocalist, Chuck Mosley. Mosley, who previously fronted Faith No More, passed away earlier this month, reportedly due to an overdoseMosley‘s Primitive Race bandmate Chris Kniker commented:

“I wasn’t prepared for any of this. Most only knew Chuck Mosley as the former singer of Faith No More; to me was a friend with whom I had formed a special bond over the past 17 years. Chuck was funny, witty, charismatic, and charming in a way that was only Chuck. He was truly one of a kind.

Chuck inspired Mark, Erie, and I, and I knew we did the same for him. He felt we had created something that allowed him to grow as an artist. He was thrilled and honored to be playing on a record with Dale Crover. I was just happy to know that we made a record that I enjoyed; a group of friends creating something together.

I am sure that Chuck would want us all to learn and grow from his struggles. Addiction is a horrible burden to bare for the afflicted and their loved ones. If you are or know someone who needs help don’t be afraid to ask.”

Soul Pretender” arrived in stores on November 03rd—less than a week prior to the Mosley‘s November 09th death.
