Skrillex pulling double duty at BUKU Music + Arts Project, set to join From First To Last for special performance
After taking a relative breather in 2018, Skrillex is back in full force this year. In fact, by the end of the summer events circuit, Skrillex will have performed a number of solo shows, a handful of festival-headlining Dog Blood reunions, and now, he’s slated for a special appearance with his former band, From First To Last, at this year’s BUKU Music + Arts Project. From First To Last last performed together two years ago at Emo Nite LA, a performance that at the time ended a decade-long hiatus for the band.
In the time since Skrillex last rejoined his screamo outfit, the band has released two singles with him on vocals— “Make War” and “Surrender.” Now Travis Richter, Matt Good, and Derek Bloom will be joined by their former lead vocalist Sonny Moore once again for a special after party performance at Republic New Orleans. The OWSLA boss will be pulling double duty, also headlining the festival with Boys Noize as Dog Blood. BUKU’s lineup dropped back in December, topped by A$AP Rocky, Excision, RL Grime, and Lana Del Rey.
