From First To Last are Writing a New EP; “If [Sonny Moore] Would do a Song with us on the EP, it Would be Absolutely Awesome”

by | Nov 13, 2013

There’s been a lot of From First To Last buzz the past few weeks, and today we have a little more info on what’s going down.

The band, who have been on hiatus the past four years, revealed that they’re writing a new EP and launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the release. Their current lineup consists of Matt Good, Travis Richter, Derek Bloom, and Matt Manning.

Where’s Sonny Moore (aka Skrillex)?

Good told Altpress:

“I have reached out to Sonny; I actually hit him up this morning, so we’ll see what happens, Obviously there’s all this debate about the band with Sonny and the band without Sonny, and it’s really unfortunate because it kind of pulls fans away from what the music’s all about. We all loved having Sonny in the band, and he was an awesome singer. If he would do a song with us on the EP, it would be absolutely awesome, and it would make a ton of people happy. But if he doesn’t, I still want to make a great record and show people that we’re a band, and we just like making music.”

And what inspired FFTL to begin writing music again? Apparently a band Good is working with are big fans of producer Ross Robinson.

“I showed them these videos we made with Ross when we were in the studio recording Heroine. I hadn’t seen them in years, and when I watched them, I started getting that reminiscent, emotional thing going on. [Laughs.] I got a little watery-eyed, and I was like, “Man, that was a really cool experience.” To this day, [recording Heroine with Robinson] was probably one of the coolest things I’ve ever done, and when I saw it, it just brought back all of these feelings—like, super-hard.”

Here’s a video for their Kickstater campaign:
