VUA is the current band backing Chuck on the album and will continue to back him for tour.
A distinctly intriguing character, Chuck Mosley is a singer and songwriter and a pioneer of the “Rap Rock”music genre. Mosley was the original front-man of the groundbreaking and highly influential band Faith No More joining the band in 1985. He was featured on their debut album “We Care a Lot” and on their second, “Introduce Yourself”.
After parting ways with Faith No More in 1988, Mosley went on to form a new band, Cement. Cement released two albums: “Cement” and “Man with the Action Hair”, both distributed by Dutch East India Trading. The band toured the United States and Europe promoting their music throughout the mid-90’s. Mosley also spent a brief stint as lead singer in revered hardcore punk band Bad Brains. Chuck also relocated to Cleveland during this time to work on writing and compiling new material while raising his two daughters.
Throughout his hiatus, Chuck has continued to be cited as a major influence by prevalent groups such as Korn, Limp Bizkit, and others. During this time off, he was featured in Billboard Magazine, in spite of the fact that he hadn’t released an original record in several years. Mosley’s original recording of We Care a Lot remains as popular and relevant as ever, currently serving as the theme song for the Discovery Channel show Dirty Jobs, being prominently featured in the major motion picture Grosse Pointe Blank (starring John Cusack, Dan Aykroyd, and Minnie Driver), and being included in the popular Rock Band video game. Chuck retains an extremely loyal “cult” following amongst fans, both in the United States and overseas.
Chuck teamed up with multi-platinum producer/engineer Michael Seifert and inked a record deal for a new full-length album, which was produced at Ante Up Audio, a recording complex in Cleveland, Ohio. The Album, “Will Rap Over Hard Rock For Food” was released on August 11, 2009 by Reversed Image Unlimited. A supplemental series of video blogs chronicling the making of “Will Rap Over Hard Rock For Food” (produced by Bryan Porter of Enigma Digital Media) has been made available online at www.chuckmosleycom.
