The Nottingham indie band have been getting coverage on both national radio and in the press in February 2011.

The five-piece played a live session on Radio 1 with Huw Stephens and their tracks have recently made the coveted Radio 1 playlist.

"It's been amazing. Seeing every different DJ playing you is fantastic," said singer Rob Milton.

Rob has been interviewed by Jo Whiley and the band have also featured in a full-page spread in NME this month.

It has been a whirlwind 12 months for the band, which formed three years ago.

They signed to record label Your Childhood, played festivals Splendour and Dot-to-Dot as well as Glastonbury and released their first single.

Their second single, River Jordan will be released on 28 February and hope to record their first album this summer.

They embark on an eight date UK tour in March, playing Nottingham's Rescue Rooms on the 5th. For all the tour dates visit Dog Is Dead on MySpace.

The musicians have been regular guests of BBC Introducing in Nottinghamshire, with Dean Jackson. You can listen to the show every Saturday from 9.00 - 10.00pm. BBC Radio Nottingham is broadcast on 103.8, 95.5FM, 1584AM, DAB and BBC iPlayer.
