Serotone is a melodic hard-rock band based out of Minneapolis that is hell bent on taking over the world with original songwriting and high-energy infused live shows.

Biography

Formed in 2001, Serotone made a name for themselves as a hard hitting, progessive rock band who not only were entertaining for music lovers, but for musicians alike.

After the release of a self-titled E.P., a full-length album entitled My Secret Hiding Place, and a West Coast tour in late 2003, Serotone saw what was thought to be their demise in mid-2004.

After a year of hibernation, vocalist Jeff Scott and guitarist David Kittelson decided to lower the white flag and start anew, keeping the Serotone name alive. Joining the newly formed group on guitar was long-time friend and guitar tech Brad Kletzin, whose addition to the band thickens the sound and allows Kittelson more room to let his amazing talents shine through. This new incarnation of the band left behind the progressive rock groove and traded it in for a much more driving and straight-forward rock sound.

2006 was a productive year for the group. They were given the opportunity to play with some high-profile names such as Powerman 5000 (twice), along with winning a handful of battles. It also saw the addition of bassist Mike Johnson, whose excitement and zealousness is a fresh spark for the band. Soon after, Eli Johnson stepped in to take over drum duties, who together with Mike, form the rhythm section of the group affectionately known as "Johnson & Johnson".

With this current line-up, the creative process is in high-gear. Blending in-your-face guitar hooks with a focus on multi-vocal harmonies, Serotone's new sound is a must hear. 2007 looks to be a promising year for the group, who look to be in the studio in the not-to-distant future. Join us in spreading the word that Serotone is back and a force to be reckoned with.

Lyrics

Goodbye My Friend

Written By: D. Kittelson, J. Scott

Spent some time together
Been through hell and back
That's why it's so hard to
Say goodbye my friend

Don't fall and hit the pavement
As you stumble with frustration
Just leave and hear me sayin'
Goodbye my friend

I didn't think this could happen
To someone like yourself
Just get the hell away from
Me and everyone else

Don't fall and hit the pavement
As you stumble with frustration
Just leave and hear me sayin'
Goodbye my friend

Don't want to be here again, goodbye
Walk away and don't look back

Don't fall and hit the pavement
As you stumble with frustration
Just leave and hear me sayin'
Goodbye my friend

Don't want to be here again
Goodbye



Would It Matter

Written By: D. Kittelson, J. Scott

Everything seems to be, crumbling at my feet
My life is a burning wreck
What's left to say, everything will end someday
So why not now, I see the darkness drawing nearer

As I sit and think about, the decisions I am to make
Do I want to be responsible?
As I sit, I've hesitated way too long
And I'm wondering would it matter at all

What's drawing me, to put God's work
In my hands, no one assigned me that
And so I think, I'd be better anyway
And I fall down, my mind is flaring but I dare

As I sit and think about, the decisions I am to make
Do I want to be responsible?
So I think about my insignificant life
And I'm wondering would it matter at all

Contemplations racing through my mind
Can't control this anger anymore
And I try to run, And I try to hide
But these feelings, have taken control

As I sit and think about, the decisions I am to make
Do I want to be responsible?
So I think about my insignificant life
And I'm wondering would it matter at all



Suffocation

Written By: D. Kittelson, J. Scott

Everything around me, slowly caving in
I feel like I'm falling, Internally within

And I, can't breathe, I'm drowning in my head
How, can I, survive suffocation

Everything I know, clustering in my head
What's good or evil, can't distinguish this time

And I, can't breathe, I'm drowning in my head
How, can I, survive suffocation
I don't know how long, I can take this
It seems too long, for me to

I can't tell what is real, or what is fiction
How can I change these, feelings of confusion

Cause I, can't breathe, can't get to the surface
And I, can't escape, this suffocation
But I, can't see, everything ahead
Cause I, won't be, here till the end

I don't know how long, I can take this
It seems too long, for me to make it
I can't seem to break, through the surface
So I must fall to, suffocation
