Teen Metal Band to Release Book Next Year

Posted by - 01:13 PM on 07/21/14
Unlocking the Truth, the teen metal band that signed with Sony, will be releasing a book next year.
G.P. Putnam's Sons Books for Young Readers, part of Penguin Group (USA), said Friday that it would publish a book written by the Brooklyn trio chronicling the group's "path to success." Unlocking the Truth is signed to the new label The Cherry Party, a division of Sony. The band played at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this year and has opened for Guns N' Roses.

Love how every press release finished with the reminder that they played Coachella and opened for Guns n Roses to establish credibility.

Surprised they don't include a link to the Youtube video of them playing a breakdown.

Watched them open for QOTSA last night, sound like any other group of 12 year olds playing music together: not that good.

This story went from "really cool for these kids" to "This is complete bullshit," very quickly. They sound like 12 year olds playing music. Not some virtuoso kids, destroying the faces of the world.

Maybe in a few years once they grow more as musicians, they might put out something worth listening to. I imagine this book reading like, "We started a band. We played on the streets of New York. Someone made a YouTube video. Sony."

Absolutely. Listening to these kids reminds me of when I was a kid starting out with my first "bands" while we were still trying to learn our instruments. Pretty atrocious. Lol

I hope they keep at it, though. Better lyrics will come with age and life experience. Musically they're not the worst band ever, though. That guitarist has some skills for a kid his age. That drummer tho.....

Not trying to be racist, but do you think the fact that they're black could've got them signed?

Perhaps Sony thought that their race was an interesting angle?

Let's be honest, there's an excess of teenage, white acts getting together to play a heavy breakdown.

It's the elephant in the room. Sorry!

Do these guys sing at all? Because they only sound like a bunch of teenagers jamming to a Metallica song.
