TFK Seattle, WA...November 19, 2008...Taco BellŪ's inaugural "Best of the Beat" winners were announced today as part of the leading Mexican-style quick service restaurant's Feed the Beat program. Tooth & Nail Records' Thousand Foot Krutch was one of the three winners announced today along with the bands Hit the Lights and Fireflight. Already privy to $500 in Taco BellŪ Bucks for free Fourthmeal, the late night meal between dinner and breakfast, these bands 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.

"When we entered this contest we never thought we'd wind up being one of the winning bands," said Trevor McNevan, lead singer. "A huge THANK YOU to the fans who voted and voted and voted, we're humbled by your show of support. We want to thank Taco Bell for doing something like this to raise awareness of the great bands out there hitting the road to share their music with people."

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 BellŪ 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.

About Thousand Foot Krutch:
Thousand Foot Krutch, started by frontman/songwriter Trevor McNevan, have sold a half-million copies to date of their albums "Set It Off," "Phenomenon," "The Art Of Breaking," and "The Flame in All of Us." The band hit the musical scene with the "Phenomenon" album and branched into radio with songs "Rawkfist" (Phenomenon) and "Move" (The Art of Breaking). It was "Rawkfist" that became the first great sports anthem of the 21st century, being heard everywhere from sports stadiums to commercials (NHL, NFL and major league baseball, ESPN) to the WB's Smallville. TFK has shared stages with a wide mix of headliners including Switchfoot, Chevelle, Three Days Grace, 311 and Sevendust.

TFK's most recent release, The Flame In All of Us, has garnered such praise as "shows the passion and heart," "best album to date," and "bright new chapter for Thousand Foot Krutch." In addition, Thousand Foot Krutch's Active Rock/Alternative single "Falls Apart" debuted in the Top 40. The single climbed into the Top 30 marking the band's third Active Rock/Alternative single to break into the Top 30 on the charts following the hit songs "Rawkfist" and "Move."

The band is currently on tour traveling state to state on Creation Festival: The Tour, which is named as a "festival on wheels." For more information on Thousand Foot Krutch, their tour dates and other current news visit their MySpace, www.myspace.com/thousandfootkrutch.
