Skrillex hasn’t forgotten his roots.
A vanguard of dubstep, Skrillex shoulders considerable responsibility for the genre’s ascendance to electronic prevalence, but that doesn’t mean that the producer has completely strayed from his rock beginnings. The lead guitarist of From First to Last, Matt Good recently debuted an exclusive new release from the band during his DJ set at Emo Night in Los Angeles. Titled “Surrender,” the track notably featured Skrillex’s vocals, as the superstar producer was once their full-time lead vocalist
The single follows Skrillex’s revival of his lead singer position earlier in this year, a reunion that would prompt the band’s release of “Make War.” Skrillex’s return to From First to Last has left fans eager for new music from the band, and that wait has accordingly been suspended as the band resurrects its emo aesthetic with Skrillex once more at the vocal helm.
