Collaborative Alternative Rock Band PRIMITIVE RACE has revealed an early taste of their upcoming album, Cranial Matter in the form of a Toshi Kasai (Dale Crover Band) re-imaging of the title track. The remix album Cranial Matter is a follow up to the 2018 album Soul Pretender, and honors late front man Chuck Mosley, who tragically died six days after the album came out.
“Toshi has become a great friend and it was a no brainer asking him to take part on this record. His involvement was a perfect fit following his work on Soul Pretender. He tracked and engineered all Dale’s drums. I already knew he was a hell of a remixer from the work he did with Buzz (Melvins) on a KMFDM EP we worked on together previously. I’m very happy with what he did.” – Chris Kniker
