Malcolm Brickhouse (guitar & vocals), Jarad Dawkins (drums) and Alec Atkins (bass) are most likely the youngest metal band with a record deal. Sony signed the 12- and 13-year-olds for for a two album contract with an option for more. This deal is worth 1.3 million euros! Malcolm and Jared have been jamming together since they were 5 and asked their longtime friend since kindergarten Alec to pick up the bass when things got serious. They taught him to play the bass from scratch. This boy’s mother also acts as one of the managers of the band, conveniently termed the ‘momager’. The youngsters have quite an impressive list of achievements so far. They performed on Time Square in New York, Coachella music festival and the Vans Warped Tour, and opened for bands such as Guns ‘n’ Roses and Queens of the Stone Age. As influences they mention Metallica, Slipknot, Disturbed, Living Colour, Chelsea Grin, Motionless in White, and Escape the Fate. Definitely a young band to keep an eye out for!
