“Shreveport, La.’s Seratones is a kick-ass rock band that has all the stage presence in the world.” – NPR Music
“While there was more than enough great music [at SXSW]  – among those who excelled were…Seratones” -Wall Street Journal
“…right in the Southern rock wheelhouse…equal parts swagger and aggression.” – Stereogum
“…[‘Take It Easy’] feels like a bold move. It’s closer to a ballad than some might expect from the band, but it’s one that tears at the soul with sharp teeth.” – Consequence of Sound

“Chandelier’ is a southern gothic garage rock jam that will have you buying a leather jacket and dreaming of the summer…Everything’s coming up Seratones.” – Noisey

Led by powerhouse frontwoman A.J. Haynes whose thunderous vocals recall the grit of Janis Joplin and gospel of Mavis Staples, Seratones recorded each track of Get Gone as a live take in Mississippi’s Dial Back Sound studios. The influences of their hometown of Shreveport combined and Haynes’ powerful singing voice, first honed at Brownsville Baptist Church in Columbia, Louisiana at age 6, ring 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.
