Unlocking The Truth Look To Crowdfund $55,000 For Theatrical Release Of Their Documentary


Back in 2014 teenage metal outfit Unlocking The Truth were on top of the world, having signed a potential (however contractually unlikely) 1.8 million dollar deal with Sony. That arrangement soon went south however, leading to the band’s plans to release their new album “Chaos” through Tunecore on June 17th. Now the band have launched this Kickstarter campaign in which they hope to raise $55,000 to have their documentary “Breaking A Monster: A Film About Unlocking The Truth” of their recent years and struggles with the music industry open in select theaters around the aforementioned album’s release. As for the feature itself, the following was shared of it:

BREAKING A MONSTER is a documentary film about the breakout year of the heavy metal band Unlocking The Truth. It follows 12 and 13-year-old members Alec Atkins, Malcolm Brickhouse and Jarad Dawkins as they first encounter stardom and the music industry, transcending childhood to reckon with the realities behind their rockstar dreams. Questions about the balance of art and commerce, perceptions of race and definitions of childhood all emerge on the band’s tumultuous journey.

NOW… Unlocking The Truth‘s debut album will be self-released this June!!! It has been a long and dramatic road leading up to the release of this record, and BREAKING A MONSTER is the behind-the-scenes look at how the industry tried to shape the band before they chose to release their music independently.”

A trailer for the feature can be found over at Kickstarter.
