Mixed musical treats to Roskilde Festival
Chase & Status, Foals, Killing Joke and Kylesa are added to the poster.

Today's bunch of new bands offers something for every taste. With much varied names, today's announcement covers many genres.

CHASE & STATUS (UK) are about to become megastars in the arena where drum'n'bass, dubstep, pop and rock collide in spectacular public celebrations. Everyone who enjoyed a hot rave in the company of The Prodigy and/or Pendulum at Roskilde Festival 2010, should go to a massive drum'n'bass party with Chase & Status.

FOALS (UK) play danceable rock that you can easily move your feet to. However, unlike few other British bands, Foals are intent on musical experimentation, constantly shaking and challenging the templates of their rock songs. Look forward to skewed, tricky rhythms and African-inspired guitar playing from this advanced, British rock band.

KILLING JOKE (UK) has with industrial synthesizers, aggressive guitars and electronic techno rhythms inspired a dizzying number of bands. Both the metal and punk crowds have embraced this band. Absolute Dissent from 2010 is made by the original lineup from the late 70s and shows a manic top form on par with the early years.

KYLESA (US) is a Southern state band specialising in psychedelic metal with a poppy edge. The vocal alternation between Laura Pleasants and Philip Cope and the many accessible and almost indie-rocking features of the songs make Kylesa a band who, as a matter of course, invites all kinds of music lovers into the fold.
