RLJ Entertainment today released the acclaimed Black Label Media/SeeThink Films documentary “Breaking a Monster” exclusively on iTunes, two weeks ahead of its release on other platforms. Directed by Luke Meyer (Darkon), the documentary chronicles the breakout year of the band, Unlocking the Truth. It follows 14-year-old members Alec Atkins, Malcolm Brickhouse and Jarad Dawkins as they first encounter stardom and the music industry, transcending childhood to become the rock stars they always dreamed of being.
The film on iTunes will include never-before-seen deleted scenes that give an intimate look at life on the road with Malcolm, Jarad and Alec and a behind-the-scenes photo gallery of the band Unlocking the Truth as they take the heavy metal world by storm.
The band was the youngest group in history to perform at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. It also performed at the Afropunk Fest, SxSW, and was the youngest band to play at the 2014 Vans Warped Tour. The trio has opened for Guns N’ Roses, Motorhead, Queens of the Stone Age, Living Colour and more, while also earning spots in commercials for AT&T, Beats by Dre, Maybelline and Verizon.
