Unlocking The Truth, a metal band trio of Black Brooklyn eighth-graders, has been buzzing since videos of the crew rocking out have gone viral the past few years. Now, the talented middle school metal-heads have inked a two-album deal with Sony Records.
Guitarist Malcolm Brickhouse, 13, bassist Alec Atkins, 13, and drummer Jarad Dawkins, 12, have been grinding it out the past two years and their hard work culminated into the Sony deal. Sony has agreed to produce two records with an option of four more albums should they continue their working relationship as reported by the New York Daily News. If all six records are recorded with Sony, the group could yield a potential $1.7 million.
The group was discovered in 2012 by singer Eric Clampton's drummer Steve Jordan playing in Washington Square Park, and gigged at the Apollo Theater, opened up for the Guns N' Roses band and also performed at this year's Coachella Festival.
