Culture Abuse Accuse From First to Last of Ripping Off Cover Art
Published Jan 16, 2017Florida emo outfit From First to Last released a new song titled "Make War" with their old frontman and brostep icon Skrillex yesterday (January 15), though San Francisco five-piece Culture Abuse have noticed the single's artwork bears a striking resemblance to their own cover art from last year's Peach.
Culture Abuse took notice and posted an image of both fruit-themed covers side-by-side on Facebook, accompanied by a friendly waving emoji. You can find the band's post below.
UPDATE (01/16, 4:08 p.m. EST): Skrillex has made a statement on the similarities between the two covers. You can find it below.
Last year, we called Peach a refreshing and dynamic set of songs that pushes the boundaries of modern punk music, and spoke to the band about stretching those limits.
"This whole record is about doing whatever the fuck you want to do," vocalist David Kelling told Exclaim! last year. "I've played in bands before where everyone was all about being strategic and making a particular sound, and there were all these rules. But when [Culture Abuse] started it was like, fuck it, let's just play what we want to play."
