released July 19, 2012

the excuses are Jeff Skorik on guitars and vocals, Pat Meusel on bass and vocals and Chris Minnis on drums and as few vocals as possible.

Ifya Got Audio is
* produced by the excuses and Logan Schlegel
* recorded by Logan Schlegel at Catch This Music, Nashville, TN except initial drum tracks recorded by Chris Utley at Benchmark Sound, Nashville, TN
* mixed by Logan Shlegel at Green Wave Audio
* mastered by Blake Bickel at Dynamic Sound Service, Seattle, WA

the excuses would like to thank TC for giving Jeff his
guitar back, Frank for changing the pickups on Pat's bass
(even if they don't work and buzz when they do) and Logan
for fixing Chris' phasing issues. Thanks to Derek Wells
(except for cutting Had Enough’s solo in half). Big thanks
to Eddie Robba and CTM for honoring the introductory
rate well past introduction and keeping the coffee maker
stocked as well as a soft, quiet thanks to Pat's neighbors
for never calling the cops.

Thanks to friends and family wherever you are.
