Unlocking the Truth, a Brooklyn-based metal band of 12-year-old rockers, will teach you about bringing it hard every day. And also, how to shred.


“We’re waiting for their voices to mature,” says MANager Tracey Brickhouse (not to be confused with MOMager Annette Jackson). “We don’t want it to sound like a kiddie band.” Guitarist Malcolm Brickhouse, who writes most of the songs, says he has a lot to say about “relationships and their problems” and “standing up against bullying,” but he is going to vocal therapy and willing to wait it out until he can deliver the message in a way that does the music justice.
