Before Skrillex found crossover-EDM stardom, he was Sonny Moore, lead singer of the emotive, energetic metalcore band From First To Last. (I once saw him climb the scaffolding of a festival stage with his mic chord clamped in his teeth. He committed to that role.) Last month, From First To Last returned with “Make War,” their first new song since their 2007 breakup. And last night, they reassembled onstaged at Emo Nite LA, a reportedly-crazy-popular Los Angeles emo dance night. (It’s the one that used to be called Taking Back Tuesday until Taking Back Sunday objected.) Onstage at Emo Night, From First To Last ran through their oldies “Note To Self” and “Emily.” Watch the performance below.
“Make War” is out now on OWSLA/Sumerian, and you have to imagine that there will be more music on the way.
