SERATONES Announce Second Album POWER

27th June 2019

Shreveport, Louisiana’s Seratones—fronted by the gospel-trained powerhouse frontwoman A.J. Haynes—released their remarkable debut album in 2016, leading to mass critical praise, a national television debut on CBS This Morning, an NPR Music Tiny Desk concert, as well as tours with the likes of Charles Bradley, St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, and more.

Today the band announces POWER,  their first new album in over 3 years, their first featuring a new member line-up, their first release with New West Records, and their first record to be produced by Cage The Elephant’s Bradley Shultz.

“We went through a pretty dramatic shift with this record,” says Haynes. “The band lineup, the creative process, the sound: all of it changed in ways that really reflected our growth and evolution.”

On POWER, Haynes showcases how vulnerability can be powerful, as her songs explore her years fighting for reproductive rights and serving as a counselor at one of Louisiana’s last remaining abortion providers, her advocacy for racial equality, her struggles to adapt and overcome, her love of poetry, and much more. Seratones’ second album POWER will be released on 23rd August 2019—pre-order HERE.

The album’s first single ‘Gotta Get To Know Ya’, highlights the masterful sonic leap on this record. A song about Haynes’ “ever-lingering anxiety about global warming” and her “electric need to dance in order to escape said existential doom”, ‘Gotta Get To Know Ya’ is out now, accompanied by an incredible Danielle Calodney-directed music video. Check it out now via Billboard HERE.

Known for their exemplary live shows, Seratones have also just announced a North American tour. Tickets are on-sale now: HERE.

Details of UK live dates are TBC.
