The Homeless Gospel Choir

After the passing of his father, The Homeless Gospel Choir's Derek Zanetti sought a new kind of comfort from music⏤a need for big, cathartic songs, and the solace of the community he’d found in the punk scene. The result is This Land Is You Landfill, where Zanetti is joined by Matt Miller (Endless Mike and the Beagle Club, Wingnut Dishwashers Union), Maura Weaver (Mixtapes, Ogikubo Station), Megan Schroer (Boys, Kitty Kat Fan Club), and Craig Luckman (Small Pollen, Belly Boys), along with producer Chris #2 (Anti-Flag, White Wives) and more, to help create a loud new chapter for Pittsburgh, PA's The Homeless Gospel Choir. The band’s sound may have changed drastically but Zanetti’s unique lyricism remains, and This Land Is Your Landfill deftly balances the personal (grief, aging, self-perception) with the sociopolitical (environmentalism, toxic social media, the hate and ignorance fuelled by the Trump administration). The result is an urgent album that captures The Homeless Gospel Choir as the punk rock family it was always meant to be.
