After a successful launch of their debut album, Of Secrets and Wine, and a jam packed 2005, FLATSTANLEY has some very exciting developments and plans for Andy, Clinton, Neil and Clive in 2006.

Last year the band enjoyed extensive national playlisting on top South African commercial and campus radio stations such as 5fm, KFM, 94.7 Highveld Stereo and RSG. "Treading Air" climbed to the number 1 position on 5fm's High 5 at 5 for over 3 weeks. "Real Live Girl" was chosen for Tanit Phoenix in the MNET SASI Swimwear production.

Joining Karen Zoid, Arno Carstens, Louise Carver, Loyiso, Malaika, and others, FLATSTANLEY contributed an acoustic version of the popular "Treading Air" to the Levi's "CD" compilation. And throughout this all, Flat Stanley performed to sold out audiences.
