Just three dudes fighting for change, one punk rock anthem at a time... Home-grown in the great white North. Empowering alt/punk rock trio, home-grown in the great white North.

Remember the first time you saw the video for "Smells Like Teen Spirit?" That rush of the music combined with the performance of a front person channelling untold depths of pain and frustration? It's hard not to be reminded of that when watching the clip for "Mind Over Matter," the title track of Toronto punk/alt-rock trio Excuses Excuses' new EP, which premiered exclusively at Exclaim!

As a powerful commentary on the battles so many of us wage against mental illness, "Mind Over Matter" proves Excuses Excuses can go toe-to-toe with any band in the ferocity department, but also that they also know the key to longevity is great songs. The Mind Over Matter EP adds to their burgeoning catalogue, while serving as a potent micro-dose of everything that makes them one of Canada’s great up-and-coming rock bands. Excuses Excuses are geared up to hit western Canada, and you can see the full slate of dates below.

Mind Over Matter follows the trio's 2018 EP Catch Me If You Can, which Popmatters described as, “pack(ing) a punch both musically and lyrically,” while the Waterloo Region Record wrote, “though barely out of their teens, Excuses Excuses are maturing quickly as a band.” Indeed, Mind Over Matter is the end result of a concentrated effort to push their songwriting skills forward, combined with a year of serious touring.

As singer/guitarist Kyle Wilton says, “The songs truly are singles; they are unique by nature. With these three tunes, the only thing we knew going into the studio was that we specifically wanted to bring something to our fans that was personal, raw, real, and altogether human. We wanted to give them a deeper look into who Excuses Excuses is, why we love what we do, and to show why we constantly fight to keep moving forward.”

As with Catch Me If You Can, Mind Over Matter was produced and mixed by Justin Meli at Chalet Studios in Uxbridge, Ontario, with guitar tech assistance by Kevin Comeau of the band Crown Lands, and drum tech assistance by Jordan Gauthier of the YC Drum Company.
