Into The Ark have announced their own first UK and Ireland 16date Headline Tour, which has already sold out in venues across the UK, including Cardiff, St Albans and Bristol. Following this Into The Ark will then support Sir Tom Jones on tour throughout June and July.

Sir Tom Jones said, “We’re going to do some shows together. It’s a tour that I’m going on and the boys are coming with me. Definitely looking forward to having the guys on board. Can’t wait!”

Dane Lloyd and Taylor Jones are from Blackwood in The Valleys of South Wales. They met as teenagers on the live circuit in Wales, bonding over their love of writing and of each other’s taste in music. The duo bought an old van in the summer of 2015 allowing them to travel the UK and through this relentless touring and word of mouth they sold-out headline shows at The Social, London and The Miners Institute in Blackwood, plus support slots with Paolo Nutini and played at festivals Dot To Dot, Live At Leeds, Stag & Dagger, and Boardmasters.

In the closing months of 2016, Into The Ark released two indie singles on their own label, Blackwood Records (through Kobalt) and made a strong impression with debut single My Ghost and follow up track Brightest Creatures; picking up support from Clash Magazine, Notion, BBC Introducing, BBC Radio Wales, Spotify’s New Music Friday, Deezer’s Brand New UK Playlist, Match of The Day and E4’s Made in Chelsea.
