Seratones are an American rock 'n roll band that formed out of Shreveport, Louisiana in 2013. The group consists of AJ Haynes (vocals), Connor Davis (guitar), Adam Davis (bass guitar), and Jesse Gabriel (drums). Initially a favorite of the Louisiana club circuit, the band rose to national recognition after signing with Fat Possum Records and releasing their debut album, Get Gone (2016).
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).
Seratones consists of four band members: AJ Haynes (vocals), Connor Davis (guitar), Adam Davis (bass), and Jesse Gabriel (drums). The lead vocalist, AJ Haynes, began singing in Brownsville Baptist church at age six. While gaining experience from a young age, Haynes also has singing in her genetics - her mother was a singer in Japan before their family moved to the United States. Haynes is currently a high school teacher with her classes including Broadcast Journalism, English 111, and Drama 1. Adam Davis, the bass player, attributes his sound to Jimi Hendrix. Adam also has a day job as a residential and commercial painter.
Quickly after forming, the Seratones won their first award at the Louisiana Music Price contest in 2013. After getting their name out there by winning this prize their band continued to get noticed. While they didn't win the final prize, the band was also entered into NPR's Music Tiny Desk Contest in 2015. They were shortly after named one of Paste Magazine's "Top 20 new bands of 2015" and their song Chandelier was named by Nmemagainze "One of the best new tracks". The Seratones were also chosen to showcase at the South by South West music festival in March 2016.
Debut Album: Get Gone (May 6, 2016)
The Seratones have played at multiple festivals including CMJ music festival 2015, Sloss fest 2016, at SxSW, Valley of the Vapors, Reading/Leeds, and Hangout Music Festival.
