Hurdles will launch their debut E.P, 'Where To Start' at Radar on Thursday October 10 with support from Affleck and Go Swim.
Formed in the summer of 2012, the Dungannon quartet have released three singles to date, the most recent of which, 'Kaleidoscope', received airplay on BBC Radio 1 upon its release in back in May.
Recorded at Start Together Studios, the single followed on from 'Paper Soldiers' and 'Pictures', and saw Chordblosssom describe the band as "another contender for the next big thing."
The success of the single resulted in a slot on Glasgowbury's main stage last summer for the final edition of the festival while they plan to embark on a tour of the U.K in the near future.
Emerging from the embers of the sadly-departed Eatenbybears, Affleck released their debut E.P in July, following on from their previous band's work to produce an effort that was hailed by The Thin Air as "a sublime five-track slab of phantasmal harmonies, shuffling somnambulist rhythms and subtly cascading, wonderfully woven electronic noise."
Their first live show followed soon after at Vodoo in Belfast and they have since performed as part of the city's Culture Night and been chosen to perform as part of the Hard Working Class Heroes festival in Dublin.
Comprising of former members of Nakatomi Towers and Parachutes Over Paris, Go Swim released their first single, 'Halo' back in August and have already featured on BBC Introducing and played in venues such as Whelans.
