Former Faith No More Singer Chuck Mosley Makes Guest Appearance at Show, Band Streams New LP
Faith No More are opening a new chapter with the release of their long-awaited new album Sol Invictus on May 19, but they haven't lost touch with their past.
The band demonstrated that connection during its May 8 tour stop in Detroit, welcoming former vocalist Chuck Mosley onstage for the set's first encore closer, "Mark Bowen." Originally released as part of the group's 1985 debut studio effort, We Care a Lot, it was one of only a handful of songs Mosley recorded with Faith No More before leaving after Introduce Yourself in 1987. Singer Mike Patton stepped in for their next LP, 1989's The Real Thing, and remains in the lineup today.
Mosley, who released his solo debut Will Rap Over Hard Rock for Food in 2009 and followed it with demosforsale in 2013, was in the news late last year when he made a poignant public appeal for financial assistance after falling on hard times and facing eviction from his home. Although his departure from Faith No More was on less than friendly terms, time's apparently healed those wounds, and he's joined them onstage on more than one occasion in recent years.

"It's lean and to the point, taking listeners deep into Faith No More's twisted world, and it doesn't let up," reads the site's review in part. "Its playfulness and aggression intermingle to the point where it's hard to tell the two approaches apart."
