Primitive Race - 'Take it All'

Spearheaded by the core lineup of Chris Kniker with Mark Gemini Thwaite and Erie Loch, and bringing on a new complement of guest collaborators, ‘Soul Pretender’ marks a natural progression from the band’s first incarnation – a more straightforward, hard rocking effort that draws on more of an alternative rock sound. “Having MGT and Erie there to round out the group and bring their sound in was always central in my mind,” according to Kniker, with “Thwaite’s driving guitar tone to add depth and that extra level of fury to the songwriting trinity”.

Among the newcomers on Soul Pretender is former Faith No More front man Chuck Mosley, bringing what Kniker calls “this gritty yet soulful style of punk rock to the mix.” Also joining the ranks this time is Melvins drummer Dale Crover; “I love Dale’s style – the big toms and the powerful snare hits. It was perfect and it brought a whole different tone, energy, and vibe to the songs.” Unlike the debut PR album, every song on the new record features the same musicians. Joe Haze lends his mixing talents to Soul Pretender, & Maor Appelbaum returns to once again after mastering the 2015 debut; Appelbaum’s presence is a perfect fit for the album given his experience with Mosley, remastering Faith No More’s “We Care a Lot,” following his work on the band’s “Sol Invictus” and bringing that distinctive alternative rock edge to the album.

STOP PRESS: Ex Faith No More & Primitive Race frontman Chuck Mosley dead at 57

On November 9, 2017, Mosley was found dead by his partner Pip Logan on the living room floor of their Cleveland home. Drug paraphernalia was discovered at the scene, with police later confirming a drugs overdose was the cause of death. His family released a statement that read:

After a long period of sobriety, Charles Henry Mosley III lost his life, on November 9th, 2017, due to the disease of addiction. We’re sharing the manner in which he passed, in the hopes that it might serve as a warning or wake up call or beacon to anyone else struggling to fight for sobriety. He is survived by long-term partner Pip Logan, two daughters, Erica and Sophie and his grandson Wolfgang Logan Mosley. The family will be accepting donations for funeral expenses. Details to follow when arranged.

Faith No More released the following statement:

It’s with a heavy, heavy heart we acknowledge the passing of our friend and bandmate, Chuck Mosley. He was a reckless and caterwauling force of energy who delivered with conviction and helped set us on a track of uniqueness and originality that would not have developed the way it had had he not been a part. How fortunate we are to have been able to perform with him last year in a reunion style when we re-released our very first record. His enthusiasm, his sense of humor, his style and his bravado will be missed by so many. We were a family, an odd and dysfunctional family, and we’ll be forever grateful for the time we shared with Chuck.
