Redeemer is Norma Jean's third studio album. It was released on September 12, 2006 in the United States, and on October 3, 2006 in Canada. The album sold more than 21,000 records in its first week. It is the last album to feature drummer Daniel Davison. For this album they filmed videos for "Blueprints for Future Homes", and "Songs Sound Much Sadder". Shannon Crawford, the singer of Cellophane and Monster in the Machine, painted the album artwork.
The song "No Passenger: No Parasite" seems to have derived its title and the majority of lyrics from the book "Mere Christianity" by C.S. Lewis, in which Lewis describes a fully Christian society as having "no passengers or parasites".
The song "Songs Sound Much Sadder" was featured on This is Solid State Vol. 6
