Unlocking the Truth, the teenage Brooklyn Band sweeping the States, will be the subject of a feature-length documentary.
The band, consisting of members aged 12 and 13 years old, recently signed a $1.7 million contract with Sony Music, which includes an advance of $60,000 on a two-album deal with an option for four more records.
According to the Hollywood Reporter (via Gigwise), the young trio will be shown signing this deal in Los Angeles and will be directed by Luke Meyer.
The band are the youngest group ever to perform on the main stage at Coachella. As well as achieving this, the band was also featured on the 2014 Vans Warped Tour and opened for Guns N'Roses in Las Vegas as well as Queens of the Stone Age.
The film's producer, Molly Smith, spoke of the group highly saying: "The eighth graders are honest and sincere and represent individuality and incredible talent for their age," said Smith. "The piece spoke to us, as it has a great message about being yourself and following your dreams, regardless of the hurdles one must overcome."
There is currently no date set on the film's release or when Unlocking the Truth's first album will be released.
