From First to Last

From First to Last Biography

Los Angeles-based From First to Last was founded by guitarists Matt Good and Travis Richter in 2002, when the two had bands that played together in Florida. A revolving line-up with post-hardcore punk and metal influences was documented on their 2003 EP Aesthetic, as well as their 2004 Epitaph debut Dear Diary, My Teen Angst Has a Body Count, which saw the addition of singer Sonny Moore and drummer Derek Bloom. Producer Ross Robinson (Korn, The Cure) and ex-Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland joined the band for 2006's Heroine, which made Kerrang! Magazine's Top 20 Albums of 2006.

Recently signed to Suretone Records, From First to Last is currently prepping their first release for the label with veteran producer Josh Abraham, who has logged time behind the boards with superstars Velvet Revolver, Linkin Park, Slayer and many more. With mixing duties handled by Brendan O'Brien (Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Rage Against the Machine), the album is set for release early next year. The band recently returned to their Aesthetic-era core with co-founding From First to Last guitarist Matt Good stepping up to handle lead vocals and co-founder/guitarist Travis Richter and new permanent member/bassist Matt Manning handling additional vocals. Drummer Derek Bloom remains behind the skins.
