A nation-wide band hunt to give the winning band a chance to play atop the Red Bull Tour Bus
Earlier this year, seven talented, young bands from colleges in seven cities across the country were picked from amongst various battle-of-the-bands competitions, as finalists in the new Band Hunt Powered By Red Bull Tour Bus. Each of these bands was then given the opportunity to record a song at a studio in their city – a song that will now decide whether the band gets a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play atop the iconic Red Bull Tour Bus. Following a two week-long voting period, a winner will be chosen by a combination of public and jury votes, with the latter comprising music journalist and co-founder and editor-in-chief of The Daily Pao, Amit Gurbaxani, music journalist and critic, Anurag Tagat, and head of programming for NH7 Weekender/OML, Debayan Deb.
Voting will continue until 6th September. To vote, log on to: bandhunt.redbull.com
The seven bands come from seven different cities across the country, including Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai and Kolkata. There’s Last Ride Home, a five-piece progressive band from Mumbai, who released their debut album in April last year; Shivatattva, a seven member fusion band from Ahmedabad; The Runks, a four-piece country/pop/rock outfit from Goa; 6ix MHz, a Hindi alternative rock band from Delhi; We’ll Decide on Wednesday, a melodic metal band from Bangalore; Wayside, a blues-rock band from Chennai, who released their debut single earlier this month; and Mukti, a heavy metal band from Kolkata.
