Is that From First to Last original lineup reunion closer than we originally thought? If we’re going by the massively good news that was recently unleashed, then the answer may be leaning towards a yes. On Monday (Jan. 16), From First to Last unveiled a brand new song with a special guest at the microphone; former vocalist Sonny Moore. Moore, who is better known as Skrillex these days, posted the audio for the new song on Sunday, just in time for his 29th birthday.
According to the band, Moore co-wrote “Make War” “in addition to lending his vocals and production skills for the original band’s first reunion in more than a decade with all other original members returning for their respective roles.”
The premiere of “Make War” comes years after rumors began that Moore would reunited with his original music project. Rumors stayed at an all time low, but last summer, Moore helped add fuel to them when he played a snippet of a song that sounded a lot like him once again filling in on vocals for From First to Last.
Moore lent his vocals for both 2004’s Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has a Bodycount and 2006’s Heroine, but then decided to leave the band to pursue other musical endeavors. In 2009, he released Gypsyhook under his own name and then in 2010, he hit the EDM world as Skrillex for My Name is Skrillex and the rest is history.
As if fans needed any more evidence that Moore may be taking a trip down nostalgia road, the musicians posted a picture on Instagram of himself, FFTL guitarist Matt Good, producer John Feldmann, and Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker. There’s no telling what exactly the photo means, but maybe it could be Moore returning to his roots.
“Make War” is currently available for purchase on iTunes and can be streamed on Spotify.
