See the Dublin rockers perform their brand new single, as well as their tracks My Honest Face and It Won't Always Be Like This.

Inhaler have amassed a strong and passionate following of fans in a short space of time.

The Irish band - who are fronted by Bono's son Elijah Hewson and includes Josh Jenkinson (guitar), Robert Keating (bass) and Ryan McMahon (drums) - have announced a brand new single in Ice Cream Sundae, and have recorded a stunning session for Radio X to celebrate.

Watch them perform the Antony Genn-produced single in our video above.

"It’s about loss and gain, Hewson said of the infectious indie-rock anthem.

“I like writing about normal teenage experiences that everybody can relate to. I’m just trying to write about the joy of being alive, being a teenager, and the bad things that can come with that.”

Ice Cream Sundae helps form triple-helping of singles from the Irish four-piece so far, following on from the atmospheric banger My Honest Face, and the epic It Won’t Always Be Like This.

The band, who formed in school in Dublin, have had a very busy year playing the likes of Citdael Festival, Truck Festival and Electric Picnic, and supporting Noel Gallagher on his huge homecoming date at Manchester's Heaton Park.

Not content to hang out with the Oasis legend the young rockers also enlisted the help of his daughter Anaïs Gallagher to shoot the official video for My Honest Face.

Inhaler are set to embark on their very first solo headline tour, with more UK and Irish dates being announced.

Hewson and co will kick off proceedings with gigs in their native Ireland, heading to Cork's Cyprus Avenue on Wednesday 25 September, before heading to Glasgow's King Tut's Wah Wah Hut and starting October in Leeds with a gig at the Brudenell Social Club.

After travelling to the United States to support Blossoms on their American dates, the band will then return to the UK to play Manchester's Gorilla, London's Garage, and two more shows in their hometown of Dublin.
