Skrillex gifted us with something we didn’t expect while celebrating his birthday yesterday. He and From First To Last, the post-hardcore band he fronted before he became an EDM sensation, have reunited for a new track called “Make War.” Sonny Moore sang and co-produced the track, which is his first with the band in 10 years. A stream of the track is currently only available on Spotify and Apple Music.
Moore’s history with From First To Last began in 2004, when his former band members connected with him through social media. Their first album together, Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has a Body Count, was released later that year. Shortly after releasing their next album, Heroine (2006), Moore left the group to pursue what would become a highly successful solo career.
“Make War” is out now via OWSLA/Sumerian and features the same characteristics that made From First To Last a hit band in the aughts: elaborate guitar riffs, anger-driven lyrics, and a scream-filled breakdown.
