The ABC Club have been announced as the winning act in this year's NME Breakthrough competition.

NME judges whittled down the hundreds of entries they got to just five shortlisted acts and then fans voted for their favourite - picking The ABC Club as this year's lucky winner.

The ABC Club will play onstage at Club NME KOKO in London, get a page feature in NME's Radar section and go to NME HQ to get an EPK made for them.
