Post-hardcore/rock band From First To Last has reportedly parted ways with Spencer Sotelo, their lead vocalist since 2014. Sotelo has also been a member of Periphery since 2010. The news comes in the wake of the band's rumored reunion with former singer Sonny Moore (aka Skrillex), who played what's thought to be a new From First To Last song on Saturday via his radio show. Responding to questions from fans on Twitter, Sotelo made it clear that he believes his time with FFTL has come to an end:

FFTL x Diplo x Justin Bieber collab when?

anonymous 8/4/2016 1:18:25 PM

I think that has been apparent since about March, talked to spencer after a show and he said he was not in from first to last anymore.

Shane from down it should sound sick in the new fftl

anonymous 8/4/2016 2:47:47 PM

Down in it and from first to last are two different styles completely but I'm stoked to hear what it sounds like with Shane on vocals

anonymous 8/4/2016 2:49:42 PM

Shane from don not it here

anonymous 8/4/2016 2:49:57 PM

Shane donut herr

anonymous 8/4/2016 2:54:18 PM

Shane from down in it finally feel alive again

anonymous 8/4/2016 2:55:46 PM

Shane from down in it is not a good fit for this band. I'm pretty sure he doesn't do clean vocals, and his screams barely scrape by as being acceptable.

anonymous 8/4/2016 2:56:14 PM

Who the fck is down in it

anonymous 8/4/2016 2:57:34 PM

shane from down in it bringing 2004 scene music back

anonymous 8/4/2016 3:00:34 PM

i thought shane from down in it only was bringing metalcore back.... interesting

anonymous 8/4/2016 3:05:22 PM

Matt Fox here. Just wanted to let everyone know that I will be on vocals for all future From First to Last recordings as well as starting an acoustic side project playing Shai Hulud tunes in a newsboy hat. Though the songs may appear to be about a hatred towards mankind, it's all symbolic of a particularly f*kin gross breakfast meal I shared with an overzealous fan in Ohio sometime in 1998.

anonymous 8/4/2016 3:07:45 PM

Meedle is not stoked

anonymous 8/4/2016 3:08:46 PM

Yo, Shane from Down in It and I will be doing vocals for the next Shai Hulud tour with Bizarro Grain on the 'Todd From Nails Did It First' tour slated to hit every podunk bar in America. Get stoked.

anonymous 8/4/2016 3:08:56 PM

I hope this means sonny is coming back, things just haven't been the same without him. Its what the fans have been waiting for, for years. Btw who is shane?

anonymous 8/4/2016 3:11:37 PM

So is sonny coming back or this shane guy?

anonymous 8/4/2016 3:15:46 PM

who the fck is Skrillex? Sounds like a retarded camp grill.

anonymous 8/4/2016 3:21:46 PM

Terible move from this band! Dead Trees is not only their best album in my book but their only good one! The old now returning singer SUCKS!!! Spencer Sotelo has sooo much range and power to his voice! Bad move guys!

Aww poor gay boy got kicked out of gay band but hey leastly he has his ultra gay boy band gayriphery.

anonymous 8/4/2016 9:42:10 PM

So, Periphery still makes money, whoever the fck this band is without him is still supposed to make money, but they won't. That's a eulogy, right? First on LG's obituary band thread.

anonymous 8/4/2016 9:49:15 PM

Now that I think about it, webby should just make a separate section. Obvious or indicative news of a band being done or without hope should just go into a separate news page. Maybe just label an obituaries column next to the news and tidbits.

menstrualmath 8/5/2016 6:05:38 AM

Flat irons and whited studded belts couldnt be happier with this news

anonymous 8/5/2016 1:25:51 PM

I saw this band when "Chaos Crew" Phil was the singer. RIP

anonymous 8/8/2016 2:42:50 PM

I saw this band when "Todd Jones" Jones was the singer. RIP
