Major Moment Showcase Lush Take On Linkin Park’s ‘Leave Out All The Rest’

Major Moment is made up of two Russian-born vocalists – Andrey Borzykin and Sasha Razumova, and a US born drummer, Adam Soucy. Together the three have formed a truly modern rock band in Boston. Their latest track, ‘Leave Out All The Rest’ is their homage to Linkin Park’s Chester Bennington, and has been released to create awareness of mental health and suicide prevention.

Major Moment mix up heavy guitar riffs, multi-layered synths, and blended vocals to create a truly beautiful thing. Their musical influences are quite diverse, ranging from Linkin Park, Nine Inch Nails, 30 Seconds To Mars, and Muse. They dedicated their debut EP, ‘One Small Step’, to the late great Chester Bennington, and their tribute was shared by Tobi Bennington, sister of Chester, as well as members of Grey Daze, his first band. All profits from the single are donated to the mental health and suicide prevention campaign, 320 Changes Direction.

The video for the song was produced by the Grammy-nominated Project 2 Studios, and shows the band in a darkened room, making use of light and movement, in order to perfectly capture the mood of the song.

Major Moment released their debut EP, ‘one small stEP’ last year, and since then have already recorded four new singles to follow it, with the assistance of producer Kevin Billingslea, and six-time Grammy award winner, Adam Ayan. They intend to release the songs in the first three months of this year. Speaking about their music, Andrey said,

Considering the destructive messages modern pop culture carelessly brings to society, we feel it’s our social responsibility to deliver an alternative message. One of love, trust, believing in ourselves and supporting one another.
