Incredibly Echoes Radio played my album across 130 radio stations in the US - http://www.echoes.org/ie.intro2echoes.html - proper radio play ( I wish i could do that in the UK)
Had my photo taken and did an interview for the March edition of classic rock Prog magazine. Really nice people.
A couple of really supportive blog posts about my music:
I was interviewed on Radio 5 about the death of Myspace http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/outriders/
Confirmed as support for Fish in rushden in April - a homecoming gig - really exciting - http://www.wegottickets.com/event/105242 and confirmed for the Electric Garden Festival in Blackpool in May http://progrockmetal.blogspot.com/2011/01/electric-garden-news-update-10-extra.html
I did an interview with the excellent Nanolog blog http://nanolog.blogspot.com/2011/01/seven-questions-with-matt-stevens.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter
The Yonks EP I played on with Lextrical came out http://yonks.bandcamp.com/album/yonks-alpha (and sold surprisingly well - thanks much)
As a group the people on my Facebook music page designed an add for Classic Rock Prog by giving me feedback on the design - the ad is now in the current issue of the mag, thank you :)

I visited the Guardian offices near Kings Cross - amazing building:
And did lots of recording for album number 3 - 6 songs done - sounding surprisingly heavy!! Kev was brilliant, really creative. He even did some BV's for my guitar "lead vocal".
Did a Ustream and it went OK (until I ran out of rehearsed songs!).
And the Fierce and the Dead returned with a new song.
And that was January.
