It has been quite a year so far for the young metal band, Unlocking the Truth. The band with young members of 12/13 years old have been taking the metal scene by surprise and everyone has been talking about them. They were the youngest band to ever perform at this year’s Coachella Festival. Not only that, but many considered them to be the highlight of the festival.

The young band Unlocking The Truth are from Brooklyn, New York. At the young ages of twelve and thirteen these three kids are skilled musicians and have everyone taking notice of their exceptional talent. Unlocking The Truth are currently scheduled to open once again for Guns n Roses this weekend at their Las Vegas Hard Rock Residency. They are then scheduled for several more dates and festivals to include Heavy Montreal Festival on August 9th which will include headliners Slayer and Metallica. Amazing that such a young band is already achieving what other bands take years to conquer.

One thing is for sure, Unlocking The Truth deliver explosive live sets that leaves everyone in awe. Here are their upcoming show dates in case you will be able to catch them live:

  • JUNE 6         Las Vegas, NV            The Joint – supporting Guns N’ Roses
  • JUNE 7         Las Vegas, NV            The Joint – supporting Guns N’ Roses
  • JULY 11        Camden, NJ               Susquehanna Bank Center/Warped Tour

I can only imagine what the future has in store for this young metal band that write and create their own lyrics and music. The trio has already appeared on national television (CNN, Fuse and more – click here to check out their performance on FXX’s “Totally Biased”), performed at such high-profile music festivals as SXSW and AfroPunk and has been featured in such major outlets as Spin, The Huffington Post, Revolver, Loudwire, Vibe and more. The band recently signed with The Cherry Party record label, and will soon head into the studio to record their debut solo album; more details to be announced shortly.   Make sure to visit their social media sites so you can stay up to date.

Unlocking The TruthCoachella Festival was treated to an amazing performance by the pre-teen metal band, Unlocking The Truth from Brooklyn, New York. At the young ages of twelve and thirteen these three kids are skilled musicians and have everyone taking notice of their exceptional talent. Unlocking The Truth were one of the inaugural performances on the main stage Saturday and their explosive live set generated a massive circle pit and left the crowd crying out for more. 

Of their set The Los Angeles Times declared, “Playing a hard distorted blend of metal, speed punk and alternative rock on the main stage, they were as well-practiced as units three times their age” while Buzz Bands LA avowed that the band “overpowered an ever-growing mass of moshing festival-goers with the heaviest metal in Indio this side of Motorhead…Malcolm Brickhouse, Jarad Dawkins and Alec Atkins play their instruments better than most bands on the bill…”

Unlocking the Truth mention that they were inspired by Metallica, Slipknot, Disturbed, Chelsea Grin, Motionless in White, Escape the Fate, and many other great bands. Unlocking the Truth’s goal is to become one of the world’s best metal bands, and with their music, they want people to know that they could do what they want, no matter who they are, or what people say. Just be free as you want to be! Metal is in their blood.

I am sure you will be hearing a lot more from this band so stay tuned. Also make sure to visit their social media sites.
