Teen metal band Unlocking The Truth want off Sony

Unlocking The Truth

Last summer, New York City teenage metal band Unlocking The Truth signed a much-discussed deal with Sony Records, one that was worth a potential $1.7 million.

Apparently things haven't worked out for the band thus far, as Billboard reports that the trio is currently working to extract themselves from their contract.

"Our attorneys are working on our exit from Sony now," Unlocking The Truth frontman Malcolm Brickhouse said at this week's world premiere of Breaking A Monster, a documentary about the band's rise to notoriety.

Unlocking The Truth manager Alan Sacks confirmed to Billboard.com that the band was in the process of leaving Sony but did not divulge the band's motivation for doing so.

These kids aren't stupid. They know Sony wants to pigeon hold them to the publicity stunt that they are perceived to be.

Sony's bought them onto every tour. No real label is going to pick them up unless it's like Razor and Tie who'll just market them as the gimmick band who got off Sony. No legit people will touch this, then the band will realize they only got tours because Sony paid.

There's plenty of shitty metal bands made up of 12 year olds. These ones are only getting recognition because they're mooncrickets.
