Meet Unlocking The Truth – the teen (they are barely teens–two of them are 13, one of them is 12) metal band from Brooklyn who recently signed a major deal with Sony after this video went viral. I read about their deal and upcoming documentary a week or two ago, but I hadn’t yet listened to them…big mistake. Even if you aren’t a metal fan, these kids deserve a listen…I can’t even…I’m in awe.
It’s NPR recording some of the live performance and posting them on their website!
They have (almost) all of the good stuff: Conor Oberst, Dawes (who just so happen to be Conor’s current backing band), Deer Tick, Nickel Creek, Aoife O’Donovan, Band of Horses, Shovels & Rope…and they have a few gems from years past, as well. (Sadly, there’s no Jack White, no Reignwolf, no Benjamin Booker, etc.)
I know what I’m going to be listening to all day today….
