Free Tickets: Into The Ark
October 13, 2017 @ 6:45 pm - 9:30 pm
Welsh duo INTO THE ARK finished second on the 6th series of THE VOICE UK – which made its debut on ITV1 for the first time – starting 7th January 2017 and concluding with the grand final on 2nd April 2017. After tens of thousands of singers entered the competition to win a record deal, INTO THE ARK, sang, played, performed and battled their way to the runners up spot behind winner Mo Adeniran.
On finishing as runners up, DANE LLOYD said, “We can’t believe it. We’re so grateful to have the best mentor you could ever have … and we get to go on tour with Tom! Thanks to everyone who voted. Seriously, thank you”. TAYLOR JONES added, “Does life get much better than touring with such a great guy AND a Welsh legend?”
INTO THE ARK have just announced their own first UK & Ireland 16-date Headline Tour – which has already sold out in venues across the UK – including Bristol, London, St Albans, Leeds, Manchester and Cardiff. Following this INTO THE ARK will then support Sir Tom Jones on tour throughout June and July.
DANE LLOYD (25) & TAYLOR JONES (21) 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, 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.
