From First To Last Sign With Sumerian Records

The recently reunited From First To Last, now featuring Periphery vocalist Spencer Sotelo, have announced that they have joined the Sumerian Records roster and will be releasing their new album under the label.

While I admire the label’s ability to pick up a band as big as From First To last, this is a confusing move to me. The band successfully funded their new record via Kickstarter late last year and have already released a new single, “Dead Trees.” Considering the album is done and paid for, why make the move to a label as big as Sumerian? Why even sign to a label at all? In 2015, it’s not hard for a band to find success in a more DIY route, and if Sumerian’s recent marketing with Circa Survive provides any exposition, this could mean that the new album won’t be on streaming services, which have shown steady growth in the last year.

Regardless of how it’s released, you can pick up the band’s fifth record later this year. Check out “Dead Trees” below, in case you missed it.
