Between 2004 and 2007, Skrillex, then still known by his real name, Sonny Moore, fronted From First To Last. Unlike his current music, the band focused mainly on emo and hardcore music. Skrillex ended up leaving the group in 2007 after having vocal surgery. Though it was tough to see him go, this is when his solo career took off.
Just a year later, the producer began performing under the alias we all know him by now. Still, some fans have longed for his days as an alternative guitarist. It looks like Skrillex is thinking of those days fondly, too.
As a birthday gift to himself (he turned 29 on January 15), the artist formerly known as Sonny Moore dropped a new track. And it wasn’t just any new track–it’s a new reunion song with From First To Last.
The single is called “Make War.” Yes, it’s a pretty angry song. There’s plenty of screaming and plenty of angsty lyrics. Essentially, we love it.
