Squid The Whale are a talented band in their own right, but the Detroit Four have shown a knack for bringing your favorite vocalists back. Last time we premiered a Squid track, You, Me, and Everyone We Know's Ben Liebsch showed up for a verse - this time, it's Nic Newsham of Gatsby's American Dream grabbing the mic. Hit the replies to hear "How Do I Show These Cowboys I'm Alive?," the final song from Squid The Whale's new EP, Four More.

Honest question: When a band is going to push a song to digital outlets (like Paramore releasing their new single last night), is it really not possible to coordinate the launch so that it goes up all across the world at the same time? The song being up on YouTube and Tumblr before it's even available in the states because someone from another country was able to buy it early and post it ... just doesn't make much sense to me. I feel like there should be a better way to do something like this.
