Lockport’s Handsome Jack released a new music video last week titled “Keep On.” The song is a slow-burning, hazy, retro-garage rock jam about being a good old, hardworking touring band. The video follows an escaped fugitive who is rescued by his bandmates so he can dig up his trusty guitar and hit the stage again. The single comes from the band’s upcoming album, Everything’s Gonna Be Alright. Watch the video on Youtube now.
