Thousand Foot Krutch Wins "Best of the Beat" for Taco Bell's Feed the Beat!
Thousand Foot Krutch was one of three winners announced today as part of Taco Bell®'s inaugural "Best of the Beat" Feed the Beat contest. Already privy to $500 in Taco Bell® Bucks for free Fourthmeal, the late night meal between dinner and breakfast, TFK will work with Taco Bell to identify and hire a well-known producer to record a single for them and then receive help in promotion by Taco Bell in the Spring of 2009.
The "Best of the Beat" winners can thank the legions of devoted fans who voted this October and November on Taco Bell's Virtual Music Festival Web site (www.feedthebeat.com). One hundred Feed the Beat bands showcased their music, photos, bios and tour schedules on the site, vying for the chance to become "Best of the Beat." More than 180,000 votes were cast over the past six weeks and Thousand Foot Krutch was one of the three bands that outlasted the competition to win the bracket-style contest. In its third year, Feed the Beat provided $500 in Taco Bell® Bucks to all participating bands. The singles will then be promoted on www.feedthebeat.com and through in-store efforts in the Spring of 2009, as the Web site address will be featured on Taco Bell's iconic Sauce Packet, which reaches more than 208 million people each month.
