Junior High Metal Band Unlocking the Truth Ink $1.7M Record Deal

(Radio.com) Maybe now they'll be the most popular kids in their school. Malcolm Brickhouse, 13, Alec Adkins, 13, and Jarad Dawkins, 12 - better known as metal band Unlocking The Truth - have signed a record deal with Sony Music that could end up being worth north of a million dollars. Oh, and they have a book deal too.

New York Daily News reports that the Brooklyn trio (Brickhouse plays guitar, Adkins plays bass and Dawkins plays drums), who have spent the summer on the Warped Tour, signed a two album deal with an option for four more albums. The deal could be worth $1.7 million.

The teens were discovered by session drummer Steve Jordan in New York's Washington Square Park, where they set up to perform for passersby. They've gotten a good amount of attention for their public performances: this video, of them performing in Times Square, has passed 200,000 views on YouTube.

As Jordan told Radio.com in our October 2013 "New Music To Know" piece on the band, "I was walking to the studio to work on Keith's album," - that would be Keith Richards - "And I heard this music and I thought, 'Oh, that sounds pretty cool,' and I looked and it's these kids. And there's a crowd gathering. They were amazing, I couldn't believe what I was seeing. I'm going, 'Holy cow, this is unbelievable.' I felt compelled to know more about them immediately." more on this story
