Teen Rock Band Unlocking The Truth Want To End $1.8 Million Sony Deal
. (Classic Rock) Teen trio Unlocking The Truth are taking legal steps to break free from their $1.8 million record deal with Sony. The Brooklyn band last year signed the impressive deal after a video of their performing in New York's Times Square went viral.
Malcolm Brickhouse, 13, Jarad Dawkins, 12, and Alex Atkins, 13, were handed a six-album contract that meant they would be advanced $60,000 for their debut record. If that sold more than 250,000 copies, they were to be handed $350,000 for its follow-up.
On the back of the deal, Unlocking The Truth played shows all over the US, appeared at festivals and opened for Guns n' Roses. But they are now seeking to end the agreement without having released any material, according to Billboard. Read more here.
