What do The Devil Wears Prada, Underoath and Shadows Fall have in common? They were all past recipients of free food and exposure from Taco Bell as part of their Feed The Beat program. In conjunction with the 2009 Video Music Awards, Taco Bell has launched this year’s search for 100 pop, indie and metal bands. All bands selected will receive a one month’s supply of Fourthmeal (otherwise known as $500 in Taco Bell Bucks).
Between now and Wednesday, September 30, interested bands can go to www.feedthebeat.com/feedthebeatsignup for details on how to enter and contest rules. As long as your band is touring this fall, has a dedicated fan base, and a band or MySpace Web site, they’re eligible. This year’s bands will be announced on October 21 via Twitter, Facebook and www.feedthebeat.com.
If you’re a touring band, especially one on an indie label, you’ll take all the tour support you can get, and since the Bell even has veggie options, this is a win-win for any band that’s selected.
