Jarad Dawkins and Malcolm Brickhouse are showing the world that heavy metal isn’t just for adults. These two boys are taking rock to a whole new level.
Jarad (drums) and Malcolm (electric guitar) create and write their own music. In 2007 they formed their a band called Tears of Blood. The guys, now in the 7th grade, are joined by fellow band member Alec Atkins in a band called, Unlocking the Truth.
One of the biggest breaks that Unlocking the Truth received was winning the first round of the AfroPunk Battle of the Bands. They guys didn’t win the final battle but they were asked to perform at the AfroPunk Festival as a result of their amazing performance.
The band also performed at the 2013 Fun Fun Fun Festival in Austin, Texas and at the NYC film premiere of Death Metal Angola’s after party.
They have also created enough music to complete three CDs. With their music, they want to help encourage fans to be themselves.
