8th grade metal band lands $1.7 million record contract with Sony

Metal Band

Guitarist Malcolm Brickhouse, bassist Alec Atkins, and drummer Jarad Dawkins 12, just signed a two-record deal with Sony. Unlocking the Truth, the trio of Brooklyn 8th graders was discovered performing in Washington Square Park back by Steve Jordan, drummer for Eric Clapton. That led to gigs playing across the country, including opening for Guns ‘N’ Roses in Vegas, a current spot on the Vans Warped Tour, a gig with Queens of the Stone Age next weekend, and even an opening slot on Coachella’s main stage. This proves again that besides talent, success is being in the right place at the right time knowing the right people.
