Punk band NOFX are taking their talents from the Warped Tour stage to the theater with upcoming stage musical Home Street Home.

But first, NOFX’s Fat Mike is releasing a concept album—also titled Home Street Home—about a 16-year-old girl who runs away from home and finds a family of other homeless teens. Mike, Avenue Q creator Jeff Marx, and Soma Snakeoil wrote the lyrics for the album based on their own experiences on the streets. The album’s songs will make up some of the musical’s score.

Fat Mike himself performs on the album—which includes songs with titles like “Fecal Alcohol Syndrome” and “Bearly Legal”—with other musicians like Hedwig and the Angry Inch’s Lena Hall and Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba providing vocals for some of the play’s characters.

Since NOFX’s 1983 formation, the band’s released 12 studio albums, their most recent being 2012’s Self Entitled. 

Home Street Home arrives in stores Feb. 10, 2015. There’s no date set yet for the stage musical.
