The 5-piece, Shreveport powerhouse known as the Seratones are incredible.  There are a lot of adjectives that could describe them, in fact, but none will do this fantastic group justice.  You have to hear A.J. Haynes voice cut like a knife, then switch to a butter smooth delivery in the blink of an eye for yourself - because words fail to deliver the description it deserves.  Luckily for you, the chance to do just that is closer than you think.

The Ratchet-City rock/soul group just announced that a brand-new album and a tour to support it is on the way.  Billboard is reporting that the first new offering since 2016's Get Gone will be available by the end of the summer.  The new album, titled Power, will be released on August 23rd - but the tour starts next month in Kansas City, Missouri.  The Seratones will tour the U.S. and Parts of Canada before returning to New Orleans in September.  Hopefully, after a brief rest, they'll have a homecoming show in their native Shreveport!

If you are unfamiliar with their sound, get acquainted by checking out their Tiny Desk performance on NPR.
