Sonny “Skrillex” Moore celebrated his 29th birthday Sunday with a surprise for fans as the EDM producer reunited with his former emo outfit From First to Last for a new track titled “Make War.”
According to the group, “Sonny co-wrote the track 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.”
“Make War” is available to stream or purchase on iTunes and Spotify.
Moore served as From First to Last’s vocalist on a pair of albums, 2004’s Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has a Bodycount and 2006’s Heroine, before Moore left the group due to a desire to work on his own music as well as concerns about permanently damaging his vocal cords.
After releasing 2009’s Gypsyhook under his own name, Skrillex formally announced his arrival into the EDM world with the 2010 EP My Name Is Skrillex.
Rumors of a Skrillex/From First to Last reunion have circulated since the summer, when Skrillex used his Beats 1 radio show to preview what was assumed to be a new track from the band featuring Moore on vocals.
From First to Last vocalist Spencer Sotelo, who sang on the band’s 2015 LP Dead Trees and parted ways with the band in August, also hinted that a reunion with Moore could be forthcoming.

Even the band’s Facebook page has been teasing fans with the imminent reunion, posting Moore-era FFTL photos and sharing an Alternative Press article that featured footage of Skrillex singing on an upcoming new track.
Whether Moore’s reunion with From First to Last is simply a one-off birthday gift to fans or a full-fledged reformation remains unclear.
