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.
Mike Posner’s ‘A Real Good Kid’ was written over a two year period which saw Posner lose friends and family members – including fellow artist Avicii, and his own father, who he considered his best friend. The album is his third solo release, and fourth overall, having released the self-titled ‘Mansionz’ as part of a duo with blackbear.
‘Post Traumatic’ by Mike Shinoda, is a sad album. There’s no getting past it. Written in the shadow of the suicide of his friend and Linkin Park bandmate, Chester Bennington, Shinoda uses the deeply personal album as a catharsis to work through his feelings. The 16 track full length album follows on from the EP of the same name, released in January this year.
Kevin Tiah returns with his nu-metal track, ‘Who We Want To Be’. The Australian singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist returns to his post-hardcore roots, albeit with some pop-punk sensibilities in a song which he dedicates to his favourite childhood band, Linkin Park, and the late Chester Bennington.
