Seratones will release a collision of punk, soul and jazz in upcoming ALBUM, ‘POWER’

By Alex Brown - 5.7.19

Seratones announce their second album ‘POWER’ due to be Released 23rd August 2019 via New West Records and produced by Brad Shultz (Cage The Elephant guitarist). The Seratones have gone through several changes since their debut album, including new band members, a change in artistic direction and a more focused, provocative performance during their live shows.

“Frontwoman, AJ Haynes’ captivating voice remains front and center here, but her delivery this time around is more measured and self-assured than ever before, a beacon of confidence and clarity amidst a sea of social and political turmoil. Perhaps even more marked than the any sonic development on the record, though, is Haynes’ lyrical turn, which points her gaze inwards for the first time as she grapples with race, gender, and justice, writing with an unfiltered honesty that at once exudes strength and vulnerability, hope and despair, beauty and pain.”

The impossibly funky “Gotta Get To Know Ya” transforms existential dread into dance floor ecstasy. The single was released ahead of it’s album, along with a colourful music video. You can watch it below.

“I’m terrified by what women endure,” says Haynes, who spent years fighting for reproductive rights and serving as a counselor at one of Louisiana’s last remaining abortion providers. “I’m in awe of what women survive. I’m humbled by what women build. I wanted to write a song that could bring strength and encouragement to the women that have changed my life, and to anyone who works to change their world.”
