In Full Regalia is the fifth and final studio album by Swedish band The Ark. It has been released in a new unique format: it has been released as a magazine with 100 pages containing a history of the band's 20-year career as well as the actual album.[2] In its first week it reached number two on the Swedish Albums Chart and was certified Gold in Sweden.[3][4] The lead single "Superstar" was released on March 29, 2010. The second single was announced to be "Stay With Me" [5] and was released digitally on June 7.[6]

  • Martin Axén – guitar and vocals

Additional personnel[edit]

This is the first album in which Salo has been credited as playing guitar whereas previously he was credited as either vocals and keyboards (We Are The Ark, In Lust We Trust, State of The Ark) or just vocals (Prayer for the Weekend). However it is apparent that Salo played guitar at live performances in the 1990s [7] it is unclear what he contributed to The Ark EP (Racing With the Rabbits) (other than vocals and lyrics) as there is no personnel list available.
