Slaying dragons and chatting up sphinxes is all in a day’s work for punk-loving rock band Seratones—at least, that’s what their energetic and inviting frontwoman, AJ Haynes, says. Metaphorical or real, their grungy modern-day odyssey, laden with dingy punk shows, casino cover bands, and Louisiana-style blues inspired the four Southerners to crank out an album that manages to roll garage rock, blues, and greasy old-school punk into one explosive package.
The Shreveport, Louisiana-bred group consists of Haynes and her friends, Connor Davis, Adam Davis, and Jesse Gabriel. Together, they have a weapon of mass destruction—classic, unadulterated rock ‘n' roll that’s already punctured the lungs of music critics and fans alike.
In between shows, Haynes took a break from being the badass female version of Odysseus and sat down to chat with us about casino cover bands, artist Kathleen Hanna, and creating inclusive music. Read the interview, below.
