Mer rock til Roskilde

Mer rock til Roskilde

More rock to Roskilde 2010 Motörhead, Gallows and Porcupine Tree add extra guitar chords to the festival's music poster.

Yesterday Roskilde Festival brought good news to all rock fans with the announcement of Them Crooked Vultures. Today the festival continues the line of bands that establish Roskilde as a mecca for fans of sparkling rock in all styles.

MOTÖRHEAD (UK) is an institution that bears comparison with the most established giants of hard rock, and radiator mascot cooler Lemmy just continues towards rock heaven while the fumes of whiskey and high-octane rock energy make his 64 years of age seem insignificant. "Ace of Spades" is the band's sig-tune but the straightforward rock hits queue up when Lemmy and his motor gang turn up the guitar, bass and drums. Roskilde Festival is looking forward to welcoming back an ever-youthful band.

GALLOWS (UK) play gruff and uncompromising hardcore punk and have a singer whose violent stage performance is almost a guarantor of an intense concert experience. The British punk band visits Denmark for the first time at Roskilde Festival, and hard rock magazine Kerrang! hails the latest release Grey Britain as the best album of 2009 with its fierce riffs and black diagnosis of today.

PORCUPINE TREE (UK) is a hot request from a large, perhaps slightly overlooked group among Roskilde Festival's audience. The band's dark prog-rock enjoys enormous respect among both fans of the 70s music scene and metal fans – even if the band constantly renews its steadily growing catalogue with unpredictable steps in new directions. Roskilde Festival is excited to finally present a hard-wearing rock band that has never cared for passing fads.

Og i går fikk vi denne nyheten:

Them Crooked Vultures to Roskilde The super group with members from Foo Fighters, Led Zeppelin and Queens of the Stone Age is ready to rock this summer's festival.

Such a lineup almost sounds too good to be true – Dave Grohl, John Paul Jones and Josh Homme in one and the same band!

Nonetheless, the band is a living reality, and Roskilde Festival is proud to present this scorching hot rock phenomenon as one of this year's headliners.

THEM CROOKED VULTURES (US/UK) almost set a new standard for rock super groups. The lineup is as follows: Dave Grohl from Foo Fighters and Nirvana on the drums, Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones on bass and Josh Homme from Queens of the Stone Age on vocals/guitar.

The band has put out an album full of psychedelic, groovy rock music, and the joy of playing is so big that the three rock godfathers have already promised a follow-up.

With Them Crooked Vultures Roskilde presents both legends of 24-carat gold and a new sparkling star on the international rock sky.
