Unlocking the Truth turned heads and stole hearts with their Times Square performances and brutal breakdowns. After making a metal rendition of “Jingle Bells” for Cole Haan and sharing a billing with Slayer the BK teen band is poised to go big time. As the New York Post reports, the three-piece just inked a $1.8 million record deal with Sony.

To get all that sweet $1.8 mil, though, Unlocking the Truth will need to reach some pretty high bars. The deal is a five-album exclusive with the band only seeing money beyond a $60,000 advance if their first album sells over 250,000 copies. The Post points out that Beyonce’s last album sold just north of 600k copies.

The band is set to wrap up some Warped Tour dates this Tuesday (7/15) in Burgettstown, PA. Tickets are on sale if you wanna see if they’ve got the goods.
