Unlocking the Truth - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Unlocking the Truth
Unlocking the Truth is a young metal band from Brooklyn, New York, who writes and composes their own lyrics and music. The band members are Malcolm Brickhouse (electric guitar/vocals), Jarad Dawkins (drums/background vocals) and Alec Atkins (bass).
The band has composed enough music to complete at least 3 CDs and counting. In fact, they’re finally scheduled to release their EP this spring (2016).
Unlocking the Truth got their start by competing on Amateur Night at the Apollo Theater (2012) and making it to the Show-Off Round, and afterward they began performing at festivals around New York City and in Times Square.
One of their biggest breaks was competing in the AfroPunk Fest Battle of the Bands and being invited to perform at the 2013 AfroPunk Festival in New York City and next at the 2013 Fun, Fun, Fun Festival in Austin, Texas.
Unlocking The Truth was the youngest band ever to perform at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival. They’ve opened for legends like Motorhead, Living Colour, Guns N Roses, Slash, Marilyn Manson (and others); were invited by Metallica to perform at the 2014 Heavy Montreal Festival; opened at the 2015 Bonnaroo Music Festival; Rock On The Range, Rise Above Festival (among others); and they’re already booked to perform at the 2016 New England Metalcore/Deathcore Festival (NEMF).
The band appeared on the Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert and The View. They’ve appears in commercials by AT&T, Verizon, Cole Haan, Beats by Dr. Dre and most recently WOM Mobile.
Unlocking The Truth has been featured in Rolling Stones Magazine, Revolver, Loudwire, Metal Sucks, Metal Hammer, Vice, and they’re being reviewed all over the internet.
Further, the band has published a book by Penguin “Unlocking the Truth: Three Brooklyn Teens on Life, Friendship and Making the Band.” They have a documentary “Breaking A Monster”, which chronicles Unlocking The Truth’s music world journey and it’s been premiering at film festivals around the country and internationally (e.g., Traverse City, BAM, SxSW, Mill Valley, among others).
Unlocking The Truth’s goal is to become one of the world's best metal bands and with their music, they want people to know they could do what they want, no matter who they are or what people say. Just be free as you want to be!
The Body Rampant - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
The Body Rampant
The Body Rampant: When you hear the crunching guitars, pounding drums, and the high flying vocals of the Body Rampant, you might just realize that you are a witness to the return of 2000's-style emo. Technically, the genre is alternative rock. But if you lived through high school during the first part of this century you'll recognize the Saves The Day, Taking Back Sunday, and CKY influence that these boys have lovingly turned into legitimate, ear pleasing rock and roll. Los Angeles breeds a diverse set of bands, and The Body Rampant is no exception. They have created a concept album filled with small town monsters, past lives, and hallucinations, and mixed it with stellar instrumentals that waver between dreamy and furious pop-punk. It's not every day that a band chooses to make their debut LP into a weirdo concept album that grabs listeners by the brain. The Body Rampant crafts masterful pace, and just when you are about to trance out -- they knock to down with quick, stomping build up. The music is heavy, keeping with the trend that many metal-leaning alt.rock bands are employing -- but never boring. Live, the five piece band shows no mercy. Tight riffs, screaming solos, and catchy, clean vocals make for a ferocious set. Your ears will be ringing afterwards, but you'll be happy.
