Description

THIS SHOW HAS BEEN CANCELED

MESSAGE FROM THE BAND:

To our fans and fam in Salt Lake City,

Thank you so much for your support and love over the years and for the continued support of our album Power. The title track is an anthem of defiant joy, of holding space for healing, of celebrating physical autonomy. The current attack on reproductive rights and access to abortion care has made this song all the more necessary to ring loud and clear. On March 4th, I’ll be singing Power on the Supreme Court steps, joining the Center for Reproductive rights and our allies as my hometown clinic fights for the reproductive rights of our nation. I have been a counselor at this clinic for nearly 10 years, so it means the world for me to be there. This case, June Medical Services v. Gee, is one of the most important cases of our lifetime. Unfortunately, we have to cancel our Seratones show at State Room as it is logistically impossible for me to make it to both places. I’m gutted to have to cancel this show and hope to be back soon. I look forward to seeing your faces soon and owe you all the hugs and dancing when I see you again!

In solidarity and with Love,

A.J. Haynes

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

One listen to Power, Seratones’ spectacular sophomore album, and it’s clear just how much of an evolution has taken place. Produced by Cage The Elephant guitarist Brad Shultz, the record finds the Shreveport five-piece trading in the brash proto-punk of their critically acclaimed debut for a timeless brand of gritty soul, one that takes its cues from vintage Motown and Stax even as it flirts with modern synthesizers and experimental arrangements. 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.

“I learned to tap more into my own stories with these songs,” says Haynes. “I came to recognize that I have this lineage and these inherited experiences that are beautiful and worthy of exploration. The more personal my writing got, the more deeply I was able to connect with people.”

Seratones have been chasing those kinds of deep connections since 2016, when they first rocketed into the national spotlight with their breakout debut, Get Gone. Rolling Stone called the album a “fitful collision of punk, soul and jazz echoing out of a shed strewn with whiskey bottles,” while Pitchfork praised the collection’s “soulful grease and punky grit,” and NPR hailed it as “lean and compact, with an impressive assortment of anthemic stompers.” The music earned the band dates on the road with artists as varied as St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Thao & The Get Down Stay Down, The Dandy Warhols, and Drive-By Truckers, along with festival slots from Hangout to Newport Folk and invitations to perform on national television and at NPR’s Tiny Desk.
