Teenage Metalheads Land Huge Record Deal

When you were 13 years old, you weren’t nearly this cool.  Unlocking the Truth, a metal band from Brooklyn, New York feature three 8th grade students, just inked a deal with Sony Records that could pay them millions before they graduate from high school.

The group was discovered by Eric Clapton’s drummer Steve Jordan while they were playing in a New York City park last year.  Not long after that, they were opening for Guns n Roses, playing the main stage at the Coachella Festival and spending their summer vacation on the Van’s Warped Tour.

Because they are still junior high students, their new record deal with Sony actually had to be approved by a federal court.  If they can manage to deliver all 6 albums in their deal, they stand to make nearly $2 million.

According to Tabatha Dawkins, mother of drummer Jared Hawkins, school work will still come first.  In spite of their meteoric rise to fame, the boys aren’t allowed to play until after their homework is done.

Want to see what all the hype is about?  Check out this video of Unlocking the Truth’s recent set at the Coachella fest.
