SERATONES Announce Debut LP & CBS This Morning: Saturday Performance‏

Serving up a combination of Southern musicality, garage rock ferocity and general badassery, Shreveport, Louisiana natives Seratones announce their debut album Get Gone which will be released on May 6th via Fat Possum Records. Led by powerhouse frontwoman A.J. Haynes whose thunderous vocals recall the grit of Janis Joplin and gospel of Mavis Staples, Seratones make a strong case with Get Gone to be your new favorite alt-rock band of 2016. PRESS HERE to listen to the album’s swinging first single “Chandelier” via Noisey. PRESS HERE to pre-order a physical copy of the album now, and HERE to pre-order a digital copy.

To celebrate the announcement of their accomplished LP, Seratones will make their national television debut this weekend on CBS This Morning: Saturday. Tune in to CBS this Saturday, March 5th to watch Seratones perform “Chandelier” and “Don’t Need It.”

Seratones will perform at SXSW 2016, and hit the road with Thao & The Get Down Stay Down next month. See below to find a show near you and PRESS HERE for tickets.

Recorded at Dial Back Sound studios in Mississippi, Get Gone is all live takes, a portrait of Seratones in their element. Add the soul and swagger of a juke joint with the electricity coursing through a basement DIY show, and you’d begin to approach the experience of seeing this foursome live. Haynes’ powerful singing voice, first honed at Brownsville Baptist Church in Columbia, Louisiana at age 6, rings across every track. “Don’t Need It,” which opens with a muscular swing and tight guitar lines, builds into a monster finish with a nasty corkscrew of a guitar line. “Sun,” a brawny thrasher, courses with huge, raw voltage riffs. “Chandelier,” a mid-tempo burner and vocal workout by Haynes, goes from croon to a crescendo that would shake any crystals hanging from the rafters.

Shared history in Shreveport’s music scene brought the Seratones together a few years ago. All four had played together with one or another in various local punk bands, bonding through all-ages basement shows, gigs at skate parks and BBQ joints, and late nights listening to jazz and blues records. In a city of multiple genres, no fixed musical identity and a flood of cover bands, these adventurous musicians carved out their own path, personifying the do-it-yourself ethos. The band’s unwavering dedication to staying true to themselves is echoed throughout their debut; however you try to describe it, Get Gone is unexpected and unbowed, a head-snapping showcase of the twin pillars of Southern music, restlessness and resourcefulness.
