U is for Unlocking the Truth

Unlocking the Truth is a metal trio from Brooklyn, NY. The three friends Malcolm Brickhouse (Co-Founder/ frontman and guitarist), Jarad Dawkins (Co-founder and drummer), and Alec Atkins (bass) make up the band. The band got it's start after their love for the metal grew. It is from their love of wrestling and more importantly from attending the concerts of some of their favorite metal bands and artist, as well as their love of wrestling theme songs that the WWE and WWE athletes use to walk out to before a fight.
    The trio's rise to fame started when they played amateur night at the Apollo Theater and were able to win over the crowd. They wen on to play at the AfroPunk's Battle of the Bands in 2013 and a host of other shows and events while honing in on their crafts. Malcolm Brickhouse's parents served as co-mangers for the band and his mother obtained a permit for the band so that the could play at Times Square which garnered them a ever growing fan base as well as cash! However, when they went on to play at the Net's Game halftime show in 2013 at the Barclay's Center a rep saw the act and they signed with Cherry Patter/Sony & Artery records in 2014. This led to the band opening for bands like Guns N' Roses, Living Colour, Queens of the Stone Age, Death, & Motorhead, as well as host of other bands. They have also performed at big shows like Coachella (where they were the youngest band to ever play at the festival) and the Vans Warped Tour to which the crowd always went wild at these kids rocking out.
 The band has appeared on the Colbert Report and will be the feature in the Luke Meyer documentary Breaking a Monster due out this year. The band is will be releasing a book titled Unlocking the Truth: The Story which is slotted to hit stores on May 5th and also Their debut EP soon this year, it is actually available for pre-order through their website.
