Viral Teenage Metal Act Unlocking The Truth Wants Out Of Massive Label Deal

Unlocking The Truth got a lot of press for their fascinating origin story: the Brooklyn metal band was put on the map with a viral video of themselves playing in Times Square, and were almost immediately signed by Sony for a $1.8 million record deal that needed court approval to get pushed through. Now, it looks like they’re trying to get out. At the premiere of Breaking A Monster, the documentary about the band’s rise to fame, 14-year-old band member Malcolm Brickhouse said, “Our attorneys are working on our exit from Sony now.” The band’s manager confirmed the news to Billboard. The band still hasn’t released any music, and they’re set to appear at SXSW next week.
