Into the Ark will release new EP Valencia on 22nd June 2018 through Blackwood Records.

The EP’s lead track Caroline is available to download and stream now. The EP was mastered by Pete Maher (U2/The Killers/Noel Gallagher/Lana Del Rey) and written by Into the Ark’s Taylor Jones and Dane Lloyd.

They recorded it with Dani Castelar (Paolo Nutini/Emeli Sande) earlier this year at a residential studio in the hills and orange groves above Valencia.

“We’d never spent proper time in a studio before, working with one producer,” says Dane. “The aim was to keep our sound as raw as possible, and that’s what Dani did. A lot of the songs were recorded live, old school, sometimes in one take. We had guests come in to jam, including some Spanish drummers. It was an incredible experience!”

The EP features 5 tracks including live favourite No Place Like Home, which pays homage to the duo’s home of Blackwood in the Valleys of South Wales. Better Than Never At All, a track the guys wrote while busking in their teens, will be released ahead of the EP on 15th June 2018.

The track listing for the Valencia EP is:

1. No Place Like Home
2. Caroline
3. Better Than Never At All
4. Good Lord
5. Don’t Roll your Eyes

Into the Ark have a busy touring schedule in 2018 supporting their The Voice UK mentor Sir Tom Jones on an extensive 20-date tour of the US in May/June before returning to play the UK with Sir Tom and perform at summer festivals.
