Remember a few months ago when we mentioned that Taco Bell was looking for some bands to participate in this year’s version of their “Feed the Beat” promotion? Word is starting to trickle out about the bands that made the cut, and there are some solid metal bands in the mix. None of this is official yet, but don’t be surprised if you see some tour buses or vans carrying equipment in a Taco Bell parking lot near you.
Among the bands that are unofficially going on a $500 run to the border are Atreyu, Iwrestledabearonce, Whitechapel, Municipal Waste and Earthless. Hey man, tour support is tour support.
UPDATE: Other metal or metal-leaning bands in the program include American Speedway, The Acacia Strain, Vanna, Haste the Day, Mae, The Chariot, blessthefall, Upon A Burning Body, In This Moment, and Red Fang.
