It’s been over a year since From First to Last released any new music, but now, it looks like the band is ready to rectify that. On Tuesday (July 24), the California-founded band released their first new song in 18 months. Titled “Surrender,” the new track features recently returned vocalist Sonny Moore (Skrillex). As if returning to his old spot behind the microphone wasn’t enough, Moore also co-wrote and co-produced the new tune.

The new song’s surprise release comes mere hours after the band —and Moore— began to tease their social media followers about it. Taking to Twitter on Monday night, the DJ wrote: “I don’t want to make a big deal about it, but I made a new song with my old band [From First to Last] and we decided to give it away for free in a few hours.” “Surrender” is currently available as a free download on From First to Last’s website here.
For fans that follow the band on Instagram, the new song may sound a little familiar. As it turns out, the group debuted "Surrender" during their Emo Nite Los Angeles engagement back in December of 2017 where Moore was on hand to provide vocals. "Surrender" is the follow-up to 2017's single, "Make War."
Moore officially returned to the group in 2017. During a pre-Grammys interview with Alternative Press that year, the musician responded coyly to the publication's question about his status in the band. “I left the band, but I would say I’m not left anymore.”
Moore is not the only original member to return to the band; original drummer Derek Bloom and longtime bassist Matt Manning also rejoined the lineup.
