Handsome Jack are kicking down the doors of 2020 with their brand new single “In The Midnight Hour.” This raucous cover of Wilson Pickett’s signature ‘65 hit retains all the soul and swing of the original, but this scruffy Lockport, NY rock trio adds an element of danger to the track as it struts, swaggers and pounds, turning this beloved classic into a modern, muscular slice of rock-n-roll for the new decade.
This digital-only single follows Handsome Jack’s previous two acclaimed albums on Alive Naturalsound Records – Everything’s Gonna Be Alright and Do What Comes Naturally, which Rolling Stone raved is “more fun than the first Black Crowes record… it’s really good.”
Handsome Jack plays a powerful and emotional fusion of boogie soul rock-n-roll that has earned the admiration of fellow rock travelers such as Chris Robinson (CRB, Black Crowes), Zachary Gabbard (Buffalo Killers) and Ben McLeod (All Them Witches). The trio consists of Jamison Passuite (guitar/vocals), Joey Verdonselli (bass/vocals) and Bennie Hayes (drums/vocals).
Handsome Jack’s “In The Midnight Hour” will be available February 17 on all digital platforms via Alive Naturalsound Records. In the meantime, you can check it out here via Billboard.
