The Brooklyn-based band Unlocking the Truth, comprising guitarist Malcolm Brickhouse, 13, drummer Jarad Dawkins, 12, and bassist Alec Atkins, 13, probably heard the best news of their young lives.

The group has signed a two-album deal with Sony with a four-album option. If they find success, the band could be bringing in as much as $1.7 million dollars in total.

The boys began their rise to fame by showing off their talents while street-performing in New York.

That video went viral and drew the attention of Grammy award-winning drummer Steve Jordan who worked with Eric Clapton.
