Looky here, Malcolm, Jarad and Alec are already killing the game so the sooner you know about them the better off your life will be – promise!
“Unlocking The Truth” is a young heavy metal/hard rock band from Brooklyn, New York, who write and create their own lyrics and music. The band members are Malcolm Brickhouse (electric guitar), Jarad Dawkins (drums) and Alec Atkins (new bassist). Malcolm and Jarad formed their first band Tears of Blood in 2007. The boys are in the 6th grade and they’re pretty good students too. (website)
Full disclaimer – I’m not a heavy metal/hard rock person, LIKE AT ALL, but these guys right here I LOVE! I respect and appreciate their passion and commitment. Oh yeah and they already have a few choice quotes:
Brickhouse may have summed up the irony best in an interview with The Village Voice in September: “You can hate all you want, but at least you’re talking about me.” (Huffpo)
Excerpt from an interview with Noisey:
Q. What do you guys think about rap?
Malcolm: I don’t like it at all.
Alec: Rap is meaningless.
Jarad: Yeah, I mean I like it a little. I don’t listen to much of it anymore because of how much I like metal now. In my phone I only have like five rap songs and everything else is probably metal.
Malcolm: They ask us why we don’t listen to rap.
Q. And what do you tell them?
Malcolm: It’s wack. Rap is wack.
AND Jarad is writing A BOOK!!
“Now I’m writing a book. The book is about people who are being bullied in school and they joined a band, and they have became rich and famous, and they toured all over the world. And people that judged them, they have became homeless. And it’s, like, based on a true story.” (Gawker)
AND there’s this awesome interview from The Avant/Garde Diaries:
I don’t even know them and I am beyond proud. #TheFutureLooksBright
