Love the song.
Love the guest spot.
Died of uncontrollable laughter when Brad sent me the song and I heard Nic's battle cry & lyrics.
As always, a great tune from a great band.

I like this song, I don't really remember liking this bands past output though. Guess I'll have to check out the EP when it drops
Four More songs is easily their best work, in my opinion.
New War is good, but a little more raw than this.
I do really enjoy "The German Affair" though.

I have loved squid the whale since the beginning. Everything off the new EP has sounded great. One thing I did notice that I'm not a huge fan of during this song. The intro drums, and guitar riffs into and out of the chorus are the same as their song "Melbourne, Australia" from the album with the old singer. Anyone else hear this?

I think I may have seen them preform a song similar to this new one once about a year ago in Lansing. Since I'm a big fan of the old stuff i thought it was the above mentioned "Melbourne, Australia", but the lyrics were definitely different. I would be interested to hear how this song has progressed from original band, to Bradley writing lyrics for it, to the current version on this EP.

I think Bradley can and should sing songs off of "A Worrisome Voyage.." and put his own twist on them in the future. That is some of the other guys in the band's best work.

Hoping they get picked up, or put out more songs before the end of the year, because four songs just isn't enough from these guys.
Haha, how did I not notice that? Nice catch.
I love Rob's work with the band, but I think this updated version is clearly superior.

No disrespect to you; you have your own style and it is unique, but you ruined this song.

Phew, it's a good thing you commented! I don't know what we'd do without tactful people like you!

Thanks for the response! Totally understandable. Song parts are sick and mean a lot to the other band members, so putting your melodies and meanings into it makes work for the band.

Stoked for my pre-order to get here!

I love comments like yours, that can respectful support or refute points. Comment more.

If you're criticizing a band using an old riff, you probably don't know much about bands.

Ain't nothing wrong with it at all. It's an old song, they re-worked it, and it's great.
