“The Homeless Gospel Choir is proud to announce signing to Hassle Records. They’re responsible for putting out so many bands that we love and admire and we are honoured to be a part of such a wonderful punk rock tradition.”
Talking about their latest single ‘Don’t Compare’, Derek remarks
“All day long your phone is begging for your attention. Advert after advert. Expand your business. Gated lifestyle communities. Latte art contests. The perfect 3rd birthday for some rich kid in Martha’s Vineyard. All the people you know and don’t know are selling you their best 30 seconds a day as a branded commodifiable good that you can also purchase through PayPal. Skinny people in a bathing suit doing yoga during sunset, or everyone you’ve ever known at the MISFITS reunion show except you. This song was written as an encouragement to remember that I can only be myself, and that’s an important thing to be.”
