The Necks announce one track album, Open

The Necks will be releasing a new album on 6 September, titled Open, which includes just one track that stretches to over an hour. As a result it's a CD only affair, out via their own Fish Of Milk imprint in Australia and New Zealand, and in Europe and Japan via ReR (North American label TBA). The Necks hit Europe for a string of dates this October and November (in Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham then London 1–4 November), followed by an Australian tour February–March 2014, and a short European stint in the second half of March 2014. More details on everything, including full tour dates here.
