From chaos, great things emerge.

Witness: Unlocking the Truth.

Following years of media excitement, breakouts at Coachella and Bonnaroo, buzzy late-night TV appearances—and more than a few industry-related bumps along the way—the Brooklyn metal trio is finally ready to unleash their debut CD, dubbed (no surprise here) Chaos.

They wouldn’t have had it any other way.

“This hasn’t been a scary time at all,” says Unlocking the Truth’s guitarist/vocalist Malcolm Brickhouse. “This is exciting.”

The basis of Unlocking the Truth was formed in 2007. Comprised of a couple of Brooklyn pre-teen musical prodigies —Brickhouse and Jarad Dawkins, who both roped in their friend Alec Atkins a little later on — the guys were initially inspired by music they heard on shows like WWE Smackdown. The band started hunting down the heavy music soundtrack powering their favorite wrestlers (see: Motorhead/Triple H).

Initially attracting attention via street performances in Times Square and Washington Square Park, the fervor over UTT grew quickly. The band competed on Amateur Night at Harlem’s Apollo Theater. Later, the trio became the youngest group to perform at Coachella (“It felt like a portent, as if these adolescents were offering a time-traveled glimpse of Coachella's future,” noted the Los Angeles Times). They also opened at Bonnaroo and supported the likes of Queens of the Stone Age, Living Colour, Guns N’ Roses, Motorhead and Marilyn Manson.
