Ark - Back Together, New Album Recorded


Although a band that were never any good at keeping fans up-to-date, John Macaluso the drummer of Ark posted a message on Facebook in August announcing the band were back together.

Now on the drummer's Myspace page, he lists the new Ark album, Aradiokaos, as already being recorded and "soon to be released".

The band only released two albums in their original run, but have since accumulated something of a cult following.

Do I get it right that this Ark is without Jorn?

Well whoever edited the band profile on here seems to think so. I really can't find anything saying either way - but I would hope Jørn will be with them.

Unless Jorn's with Ark, it's not Ark as such, imo. To me it seems that everything Jorn has fronted isn't what it's supposed to be without him.

I tend to agree. Apparently the album is recorded though, so I presume they have someone singing on it, hahaha. No other names have come forward, so I would hope it is Jørn.

I read it on some other forum. Apparently John Macaluso commented somewhere (again on Facebook) there would be a new singer, not Jørn. This band is indeed no good at making official statements, that's the least you could say.

Your favorite band sucks.

Yes and no... Beyond Twilight's Section X is really good too.
Anyway, with or without Jorn, GREAT NEWS!!!

It is nice to know that Ark is reunited. I believe I first heard this band on January 1, 2009 with their song "Noose". What I've heard of their music is pretty cool.

I have some screenshots where John comments on the stuff on facebook(as you can see on the dates Tore and him has been working for a long time)







as you can see, its a new singer, but John wont reveal who it is. My guess is that Adrian Holtz guy.
