Seratones are an American rock ‘n roll band that formed out of Shreveport, Louisiana in 2013. The band name was created from the phrase "put it on wax" which in Spanish is the word "cera". In the music industry the phrase means to record on vinyl. The band switched the name from Ceratones to Seratones, which reminded them of the chemical serotonin. The band consists of four members that met through attending different punk rock shows around the area. The members began teaching each other about different genres of music which is when they discovered their sound. They been compared to bands such as Alabama Shakes, however they add their own blues, swinging, soul-stirring unique twist to rock ‘n roll. When performing in Arkansas with a band called "Ghost Bones", they were introduced to the lead singer of the band "NERVES". The lead singer worked for Fat Possum Records and put them in contact with the president, Mathew Johnson. Seratones signed their first major 3 album label recording contract with Fat Possum Records in 2015. The well-known American rock duo, The Black Keys are also signed by Fat Possum Records. Seratones had the opportunity to perform their single, “Chandelier”, on the CBS This Morning from their first album Get Gone, which released May 6, 2016 . The band is currently on tour promoting their new album (Spring 2016).
