“A new Welsh duo with a singer of visceral power.”
THE SUNDAY TIMES CUTURE

Into The Ark announce the release of a brand new acoustic single – recorded live at the world famous RAK Studios in London.

Second single ‘Burning Love’ is out 5th January 2018 & the duo have also announced a UK Headline Tour for February & March 2018 (full tour dates below).
This double A sided, limited edition, RED vinyl – will ONLY be available through the band’s web store. You can purchase one of 500 individually numbered and signed 7 inch vinyls here; http://intothearkofficial.com .
“We’ve spent most of the year on the road and focusing on our live set as opposed to recording material, and after all the gigs, we decided to capture a live recording and did ‘Straight To Your Door’ as it’s a favourite of ours to play live. Recording at RAK was something else – walking inside was like walking into a musical tardis, memorabilia from The Animals, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, David Bowie … the list goes on! Such a beautiful studio and incredibly inspiring to play, strum, sing and record in!” Taylor Jones, Into The Ark.
Following a summer of touring across UK and Europe which included Latitude Festival and The Great Escape, plus an invite from their friend and mentor Sir Tom Jones to support him on his UK tour, Into The Ark have cemented themselves as one of the fast-rising acts to watch.
Into The Ark have also announced a UK Headline Tour in February & March 2018, tickets go on sale this Friday 24th November at www.intothearkoffical.com . They will also embark upon their debut US tour as guests of Sir Tom Jones in May/June 2018. The duo have consistently demonstrated their ability to win over new fans following other impressive support slots with Paolo Nutini, Olly Murs, Model Aeroplanes and Gabrielle Aplin.
After starting out busking in Cardiff, Into The Ark decided to build their reputation by hitting the road in the time- honoured tradition. They acquired an old van and toured the UK doing whatever gigs they could land, regardless of the town or the venue. Two years and over 200 shows later, and their approach has been vindicated as they’ve developed into a live band that are able to rise to any occasion.
Into The Ark performed ‘Straight To Your Door’ live on BBC’s Children In Need last Sunday 19th November. Hot on the heels of recent SOLD OUT shows at The Garage, London and The Tramshed, Cardiff (1,000 capacity), Into The Ark will play their local library next! As part of the very cool ‘Loud In Libraries’ series, Dane & Taylor will play a very intimate show in Bargoed Library on Sunday 3rd December. Tickets for this show sold out in minutes. Then it’s back to Europe … after 5 shows in The Netherlands at the end of October, Into The Ark take their acoustic show to Germany for the very first time…
