Malcolm Brickhouse, 13, on vocals and guitar, Alec Atkins, 13, on bass, and Jarad Dawkins, 12, on drums, are the Brooklyn-based metal trio Unlocking the Truth.
In Breaking a Monster, a documentary featured at this year's film festival, director Luke Meyer shares the astonishing story of the baby-faced Brooklyn metal band as they set out to prove they are more than a novelty act, advancing from viral video sensations to the youngest band to ever play at Coachella. Despite dealing with the high-stakes pressures of a million dollar record deal, and a music industry intent on taking control of their lives and music, these are just kids who want to play.
Unlocking the Truth will be at Brilliant Books Friday, July 31st at 3:00pm to meet fans and sign copies of their eponymous memoir, which shares their story, as well as the principles that have led to their success. These three talented kids making musical history should be on your radar! Learn more about the band and their book here.
