Created in partnership with Relentless Energy Drink, the music chat show will premiere on MTV Music on Sunday July 6 at 9.30pm, with each 30 minute show focusing on one featured artist. Those confirmed to appear include Glasto headliners Kasabian, Chase & Status, Jake Bugg, Nas, Biffy Clyro, Queens Of The Stone Age and Ed Sheeran.In a musical landscape where fans rarely gain in-depth, up-close and personal insights into their favourite artists, Relentless Ultra Presents Soundchain celebrates today’s most influential music talent through a mixture of captivating interviews, exclusive live performances and videos.
While shining a light on today’s most important new musical talent, these shows also provide a fascinating platform for host Zane Lowe to discuss each artist’s influences and the next generation of emerging artists who they’ve inspired.Speaking in his Soundchain interview Ed Sheeran reveals: “In primary school I had Slipknot records and Limp Bizkit, Soil, Tool, I was like Proper ‘Kerrang!’ Kid and then soon as I got to secondary school my record collection started off with Guns n' Roses and then I bought ‘Justified’ in 2002 and everyone thought I was bit odd for that. All the girls loved Timberlake but if you’re a guy and someone’s just come out of *NSYNC when you’re 11…”
Zane comments: “I’m excited! This is the type of TV show I’ve wanted to do for a really long time. We’re attempting to re-create some of the amazing journeys that these artists have been on, as they tell us about the people, the records and the experiences that have brought them to where they are today. We are going to travel the world looking for the best stories from some of the best musicians around, who will also be giving us some incredible live performances.”
Relentless Ultra Presents Soundchain airs on MTV Music on 6th July at 9.30pm followed by MTV Rocks on 7th July and MTV Live on the 9th July.
