This tween metal band already have a million dollar record deal
In Singapore, these boys would still be wearing shorts to school, but over in America, they already have a recording deal with Sony Music that could potentially be worth US$1.7 million (S$2.1 million).
The three-piece metal band made up of guitarist Malcolm Brickhouse, 13, bassist Alec Atkins, 13, and drummer Jarad Dawkins, 12, call themselves Unlocking the Truth and truth be told, they are not bad for a bunch of of kids just barely into their teens.
So good in fact that New York Daily News reported that Sony have committed to produce two albums with them, with and option of four more if they want to.
In April, they performed at the 2014 Coachella Music and Arts Festival in California, the same festival graced by the likes of Muse, Lana Del Rey and Motorhead.
They have certainly come a long way since their days when they would busk on the streets of the New York.
Their manager and Jarad's mother, Annette Jackson said that they were "over the moon".
“What started out as play dates went to Times Square and now this. It’s been one great thing after another,” she told New York Daily News.
Their website states that "metal is in their blood".
Well, now, metal could very well be their long term occupation.
