“I want to be different from everyone else, I don’t want to be the same. I do what I wanna do, and that’s it.”
Hailing from Brooklyn, New York; Unlocking the Truth is a heavy metal band made up of three seventh graders, Malcolm Brickhouse (electric guitar), Jarad Dawkins (drums) and Alec Atkins (bass guitar), whose interest in metal was kick-started through their love of Japanese animated TV shows and wrestling programmes.
Unlocking the Truth frequently perform on the streets of NYC and share their videos with the rest of the world via the internet. Original song, Monster, filmed in Times Square, has more than 200,000 views on YouTube.
The band have already played AfroPunk Festival, appeared on Fuse News TV and are due to release upcoming CDs, Madness, Paranoid, Physical Therapy and Unlocking the Truth very soon.
