Primitive Race will be releasing “Soul Pretender” on limited edition blue vinyl as a dedication to the late Chuck Mosley. It will come with an inner sleeve featuring lyrics from Mosley, as well as a digital download of the album. Pre-orders are available HERE. Bassist Chris Knicker commented:
“This was a really special record and experience to have shared with Mark, Dale, Erie, and Chuck, and it only felt right to give these songs a special vinyl treatment to commemorate what we created. It feels like the right way to physically honor our all too brief era with Chuck.”
Director/musician Drew Fortier is working on a new documentary about the late Chuck Mosley (ex-Faith No More, etc.). The effort, which Mosley agreed to right before his November 2017 death, will be called “Thanks. And Sorry: The Chuck Mosley Movie,” and it will be produced by his friend, bandmate, etc. Douglas Esper. An official Facebook page has been launched for the project, and fans have been invited to contribute audio, photos, videos, and stories to the film via firstname.lastname@example.org.
Primitive Race, who were previously fronted by the late Chuck Mosley (ex-Faith No More), have premiered a new lyric video for “Cranial Matter.” You can check that out below. As previously announced, the band will be donating 100% of the proceeds from the sales of their latest album “Soul Pretender” to MusiCares in Mosley’s name.

That effort was released on November 3, six days before Mosley’s tragic death.
Primitive Race’s 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.”
The band have shared a stream of “Dancing On The Sun,” which was Mosley‘s favorite track off “Soul Pretender.“ You can listen to that below. You can also still donate at GoFundMe to help out with Mosley‘s memorial.
