The record deal that seemed too ambitious to ever have been authentic is being dissolved, it seems.
Unlocking the Truth, the Brooklyn-based heavy metal act comprised of three gutsy teenagers, is working to sever its agreement with Sony, which it signed less than a year ago.
Unlocking the Truth guitarist Malcolm Brickhouse broke the news just before a documentary on the band premiered to audiences.
That doc, “Breaking a Monster,” is seeking distribution, according to Billboard.
“Our attorneys are working on our exit from Sony now,” Malcolm said. The band’s manager, Alan Sacks, later confirmed to Billboard the band was trying to exit Sony.
Last summer, Unlocking the Truth made headlines with their $1.7-million-dollar, two-album deal with Sony, which required the youngsters sell 250,000 copies of their label debut before seeing an actual dime from the major.
A New York judge granted the underage rockers permission to sign the deal.
A reason for why Unlocking the Truth wants out wasn’t offered, but I’m guessing it’s got something to do with the fact that they’re not Taylor Swift, who is basically the only person alive who could sell 250,000 copies of any record these days.
