Jarad Dawkins and Malcom Brickhouse are metalheads who met at a birthday party when they were four years old. They can’t be more than twelve now. But regardless of age, they’re all business when it comes to their image and their band, Unlocking The Truth.

They rally against bullying, drawing on inspiration from life experiences (school), and also write love songs. Their sound projects an irrefutable commitment to going against the grain while inspiring those around them. A budding Black Sabbath meets Slayer. At just under four minutes, this Avant/Garde Diaries interview only gives us a glimpse into their world, but we can agree that, yes, it does seem like they’re 30 years old.

No mention of an album in the works, but be sure to check out their complete pretend wishlist tour schedule for a date near you.

R Bar on the Bowery Shutters Ahead of Transformation to ‘Rebelle’

Word on the street is that R Bar and its stripper poles are out to pasture. Closed for good. There had been recent talk of its demise, but it finally came to fruition this week.

He not only features classic album covers brought to life, but ones that are, in fact, beatboxing on the street. Bowie beatboxing. Lou Reed beatboxing. If that’s not enough to mess with your mind, it’s filmed in reverse; by the end, we […]
