Unlocking the Truth is a young metal band from Brooklyn, New York, who write and create their own lyrics and music. This year, Unlocking the Truth will return to Austin to play SXSW, and they will be the youngest band ever to play at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival in California. The band recently appeared in a Beats by Dr. Dre commercial and were featured in the December issue of New York Magazine as the 15th Reason To Love New York. 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 that they can do what they want, no matter who they are, or what people say. Just be free as you want to be!
