Jake Bugg, Kasabian and Biffy Clyro are among the bands and artists set to appear on new music show Soundchain, with MTV and Relentless.

The series will begin on July 6 at 9:30pm on MTV Music with host Zane Lowe. The music chat show will focus on one individual artist each week with Queens Of The Stone Age, Ed Sheeran, Nas and Chase & Status also set to participate.

Every episode of Soundchain will see that week's guest artist talk to Zane Lowe about their rise to stardom and the artists who inspired them along the way. They will also talk about new bands they admire and perform songs from across their back catalogue. Shows will be filmed in unique studio settings around the world including Los Angeles, London, Slovenia and New York.

Zane Lowe said: "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."

Soundchain begins on MTV on July 6 at 9:30pm.
