The Homeless Gospel Choir have premiered their new music video for "Normal" via NPR Music. The video, directed by Doug Helmick, is a shot by shot remake of Alanis Morissette's video for "Ironic." NPR calls the song "a full-blown, anthemic rocker out of The Replacements songbook." "Normal" is the A-Side off of their new 7" Normal, coming out June 9th via A-F Records. The 7" comes in advance of the band's new LP, coming out in the fall of 2017.

Derek Zanetti also known as The Homeless Gospel Choir, is a protest singer, author and artist based out of Pittsburgh, PA. Through his on-stage humor and vulnerability, Derek creates an atmosphere of inclusion and community. He engages with the audience in a way that allows them to know that they're not alone. His new record, Normal, 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."
