Skrillex, even the most casual Skrillexologists know, was once just a guy called Sonny Moore in a band called From First to Last. As vocalist and rhythm guitarist, Moore sang lead on the act's first two albums, 2004's Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has a Body Count and '06's Heroine. Last night, a few weeks after the band brought Young Skrill back into the fold for the new single "Make War," they officially reunited onstage after a decade apart.
The group reportedly played seven songs, including the live debut of "Make War." Skrillex hit social media before the show to tease an Instagram live stream of the set, nonchalantly writing, "gunna play a set with my old band."

Nobody knows yet if this signifies a future for From First to Skrillex, although the band's latest vocalist, Spencer Sotelo, did leave last August. Rolling Stone noted last month that the band's Facebook " 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."
