Exclusive Clip: Breaking a Monster

Posted on October 7, 2016 at 7:00 am

Bonding over their love of music, three grade schoolers from Brooklyn spend their weekends playing heavy metal/speed punk in Times Square as “Unlocking the Truth.” When the band’s internet fame explodes and the music industry comes calling, Alec Atkins, Malcolm Brickhouse, and Jarad Dawkins feel like anything is possible, but are soon confronted with the realities that come with being rockstars. Breaking a Monster chronicles the first year as the band goes from three kids just playing the music they love to the very adult world of touring, managers and a $1.8 million record contract – all in pursuit of living out their heavy metal dreams. “Breaking a Monster” chronicles the break-out year of the band, and follows 14-year-old members as they first encounter stardom and the music industry, transcending childhood to become the rock stars they always dreamed of being.  

It will be released on digital, VOD and DVD on Oct. 11, 2016. We are delighted to present an exclusive clip.
