The Homeless Gospel Choir have just announced his new album, The Homeless Gospel Choir Presents: Normal, out August 18th via A-F Records. Pre-orders for the record are available now via A-F Records.
"The Homeless Gospel Choir Presents: Normal is a concept record, loosely based on Zanetti telling life stories via short acts throughout the album." The album was described by Frank Turner as "a generationally defining album for the underground punk scene.” He also said, “In half an hour, Derek reminded me of what punks supposed to be.” Normal features guest vocals from both Frank Turner and Frank Iero.
