Open Season tracklisting confirmed

The Secretary has posted the finalised tracklisting for the band’s second album, Open Season, on the official forum. It includes some rather “interesting” title changes, and runs as follows:

  1. It Ended On An Oily Stage
  2. Be Gone
  3. How Will I Ever Find My Way Home?
  4. Like A Honeycomb
  5. Please Stand Up
  6. North Hanging Rock
  7. To Get To Sleep
  8. Victorian Ice
  9. Oh Larsen B
  10. The Land Beyond
  11. True Adventures

The titles which have changed are:

  • It Ended On An Oily Stage (Elegiac Stanzas)
  • How Will I Ever Find My Way Home? (Leaving Here)
  • Like A Honeycomb (Mother)
  • Please Stand Up (How Animals Work)
  • True Adventures (Chicken Pig)

It Ended On An Oily Stage will be released as a single on 7th March. Can’t say I’m too impressed by the title changes, but having heard all but two of the album’s tracks (albeit upon the live stage), I have to say it’s gonna be a corker…
