Although From First to Last once had Limp Bizkit's Wes Borland as a recording bassist, and they toured with alt-metal band Deftones, their sound isn't quite as heavy or rap-rooted. FFTL's more like a combination of churning riffs with heart-tugging harmonies and throaty pleas that puts them in line with screamo contemporaries Underoath and Hawthorne Heights.
They formed back in 1999 as simply First to Last, and the group endured some shake-ups over the years with a few line-up and label changes. But now they're back in full force with a self-titled disc under Suretone/Interscope Records and a video for their wistful rock ballad "Worlds Away."
Get to know FFTL a little better in our exclusive interview, where the band talks about their new album, their love for video games, and heading out on Warped Tour this summer.
