I'm really big fan of Yes and Genesis, especially their first couple of albums (Fragile, Close to the Edge, Foxtrot, Selling England By the Pound) and I'm trying to find something similar, but modern, from recent times, so if you could help I'd appreciate it :) The only thing I can think of is A.C.T., but please give me something more.

Thanks!

Echolyn has been playing 70's-fashioned progressive rock since the early 90's, but are still going at it.

Soma were a band from my area (Kent, UK) during the 90s, they fused Yes/Genesis-style prog with Hawkwind/Ozrics-space-rock:
Here's some YT vids:

Complex, catchy, and of course, deliciously proggy.

Porcupine Tree is maybe the biggest name when it comes to modern 70s styled prog rock, but they have done so much fluents and variants of said genre that I cant really tag them as hugely Yes-influenced band.
I can recomend you an argentinean band, hope you can go trought the lenguage thing as this is one of the greatest spanish-speaking prog bands ever, completely 70s rooted. Really amazing:
