Ex-FAITH NO MORE Singer's New Album To Include Remake Of 'We Care A Lot'

Former FAITH NO MORE frontman Chuck Mosley has told Greg Prato of Billboard.com that he is currently working on an album with his new band, VANDALS AGAINST ILLITERACY (V.U.A.). "The album we're working on and trying to finish is called 'Will Rap Over Hard Rock for Food'," Mosley told Billboard.com. "It's more kind of my style — more noisiness, but there's some rapping over hard rock. There's more screaming and singing — some short punk rock songs, some harder ones, acoustic jammies."

Joining Mosley in V.U.A. is Cobra Verde guitarist Tim Parnin, bassist Ed Stevens, and "A guy named Eric. I can't remember his last name, he plays drums — he was in PRO-PAIN," he says. In addition to handling vocals, Mosley also supplies some guitar.

With Mosley at the helm, FAITH NO MORE became one of the '80s' leading underground bands on the strength of 1985's "We Care a Lot" and 1987's "Introduce Yourself". Despite exiting the group in 1988 under less-than-friendly circumstances, the Ohio-based Mosley is now friendly with most of his former FNM bandmates. In fact, keyboardist Roddy Bottum appears on the new album's remake of the title track from "We Care a Lot".
