Over the weekend, we told you about Brooklyn metal band Unlocking The Truth, who’re all in the eighth grade and inked a $1.8 million deal with Sony.
They’ll never fucking see half of that money, because they’ve got to pull off the impossible: sell 250,000 copies of a metal record by a band with no proven track record.
Alan Sacks, the band’s manager, has told RollingStone.com the band’s immediate plans after the Warped Tour include hitting the studio.
The music has already been written for the album and the band’s enlisted an as-yet unnamed producer who Sacks called a “major guy in the genre.”
I hope it’s Jason Suecof.
A studio version of the band’s track “Monster” could surface before the end of the summer, and a book and full-length documentary are also in the works.
