Chuck Mosley–ex-Faith No More/Bad Brains/Cement–Announce Fall Dates for “Reintroduce Yourself 2017 Tour”!

Legendary Front-Man Chuck Mosley–ex-Faith No More/Bad Brains/Cement–will be continuing his Reintroduce Yourself Tourinto Fall 2017. After a brief break from the summer run, they’re hitting the road today in Winchester, VA and will wind through the Midwest and up the East Coast before winding up October 15th in Toledo, OH. Chuck will be joined by Alex Bergeron Jr. (Agents of Oblivion/Deadboy/The Elephantmen) on bass, Dallas Sheppard (Nineball) on guitar, and Douglas Esper on percussion.

“I’m so excited, and I hope everyone else is excited too. We’ve had so much fun traversing the country this summer; the additions of a second guitar and bass have enabled me to bring the music up to the level that I have been hearing in my head, and expand the possibilities tenfold. We’ve made a lot of great, warm, and loving new friends–truly beautiful people–whom i cant wait to see again. We also can’t wait to be reunited with an equal amount of older friends, you all know who you are, see you all real soon! We also can’t wait to get back out tomorrow, but it always seems to go by so fast!!!! I finally want to send a very very special thanks to Michelle and Doug Esper (who a lot of you know as Mr. Harry Bickerson) without whom none of this would have been possible. To Doug and Michelle, and of course Mara and Owen, and both of their families, thank you for your faith, your patience, and your absolute trust in me. I love you all.” – Chuck Mosley

Chuck Mosley has been reported dead at least three times in his life, but he says, “In reality its 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.

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’sThe 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 AcidtweakerProngRevCoKMFDM and more. Kniker is joined by Dale Crover (MELVINS), Mark Gemini Thwaite (Peter MurphyThe MissionTricky), Erie Loch (WiccidBlownload) 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 US, 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 5MushroomheadDeftones)

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.”

About Doyle:

Lodi, a small borough of Bergen County, New Jersey, is just over two square miles. There’s not much to suggest that the small village would be the birthplace of a world famous, blood-soaked form of music known as horror punk. Legendary acts The MisfitsSamhain, and Danzig all have their origins in Lodi, and something monstrous indeed lurks there. The poster child and originator of the genre, himself, has once again unleashed an evil noise on an unsuspecting world: Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein’s first release, Abominator, by his eponymous band, Doyle.

Released on Doyle’s own label, Monsterman Records, Abominator is a sonically thick and lyrically evil slab of metal that finds Doyle expanding in a logical progression upon the genre of music he helped create. Doyle’s first band, the infamous Glenn Danzig-fronted Misfits, helped create the genre of speed/thrash metal with their last album, 1983’s Earth AD/Wolf’s Blood– in fact the record has been revered as one of the blueprints for the genre by many of its most respected players, as evidenced by countless groups covering the album’s songs, not the least of which being MetallicaAbominator is not the sound of some punk guitarist gone metal- it’s the roaring return of one of extreme metal’s original architects to his blood-splattered drawing board.

Coming from a legendary band of almost mythological proportions, and having first worked with one of the most talented and respected vocalists of the century (the infamous Glenn Danzig), Doyle’s new project would need a singer with brass balls, cast-iron pipes, a suitably twisted mind, and his own vocal delivery style. Enter Alabama’s Alex Story of Cancerslug, a Southern fiend who’s sand-blasted scream opens the record, and the evil doesn’t relent until the ending growl of “Hope Hell Is Warm”, the album’s defiant closer. The man can scream and sing, and employs both styles to great effect, switching seamlessly from raw-throated roars to rough-edged, yet melodic, clean vocals. Alex’s live performances can only be described as unforgettable, disturbing and strangely addictive – a perfect complement to the already mammoth stage presence of Doyle himself.

The unmistakable sound of Doyle’s signature Annihilator guitar cuts through on every tune like a sonic fingerprint, starting with the snarling opening title track Abominator. The Annihilator’s tone is sharp as a butcher’s knife in the wrong hands and just as nasty- fans of the Misfits will recognize it right away.
On tunes like “Headhunter” and “Land of the Dead” the riffs are relentless, and if a riff could be described in emotional terms, remorseless. “Dreamingdeadgirls” brings a blackened-blues swing, and the doom-laden “Love Like Murder” shows a healthy appreciation for all things Sabbath. “Blood Stains” moves from primal sludge to ripping off-time thrash with ease. The album is just that- an album, a cohesive and well executed piece of work that takes the listener on a journey; albeit a bloody journey to places some fear to tread.

As befits songs as musically dark as Abominator‘s, the album’s lyrics are not for the faint of heart. Throughout the entire record, there is absolutely zero attempt to balance its evil with any sort of good counterpoint- penned entirely by Story (probably in blood), Abominator‘s lyrics are entirely and uncompromisingly dark. Music fans looking for feel- good anthems had best look elsewhere- those who enjoy strolling through the shadows will be greatly satisfied.

So how did this Jersey devil and crew wind up with a Dixie-bred howler? “After I had written all this music, I realized I had to get someone to sing this stuff- once I’m done recording guitars, all I can see is myself just playing that riff, ya know? That’s my thing, not lyrics and singing,” Doyle says, with typically blunt candor. “I’ve known Alex for a while, so I called him up, then sent him a bunch of the tunes. Two days later he sent me back ‘Mark of the Beast’, just like it is on the record. I said ‘That’s exactly what I want!’, and the rest is history. I only wrote the word ‘abominator’- all the rest of that stuff is Alex. He’s just crazy, man”.

It’s a match made in hell. But no metal band would be complete without a complete animal behind the drum kit. Brandon “The Crusher” Pertzborn (of Black Flag) delivers all the aggression and insanity necessary (and then some) with his exquisite musicality and showmanship.

So what can fans expect at a Doyle show?

“To get fucking pummeled, man. And then go home and ask themselves ‘What the fuck just happened to me?!?’, hahaha…” he replies with a laugh that this time, no joke about it, actually sounds evil. Loud, aggressive, and technically proficient, Doyle and crew are set to show the world how true horror metal sounds today.

So crank up Abominator until your speakers blow, check out Doyle on tour, and let the beatings begin!
