Recently it was announced that Capitol Christian Records based out of Nashville, Tenn., welcomed hip hop duo, Social Club Misfits to its roster. Together, they unleashed the digital release of The Misfit Generation EP available nationwide today.
"We are extremely excited about our new partnership with Capitol CMG," says Social Club Misfits. "It's an honor to get to work with such a great team who strongly supports our music and overall vision. Our new EP The Misfit Generation will maintain the Social Club [Misfits] sound while also broadening our scope to engage the culture at large."
Made up of Martin ("Marty") and Fernando ("FERN") from South Florida, the Social Club Misfits, formerly known as Social Club, are two distinctive personalities meshing to create an invigorating sound.
"We are honored to welcome Social Club Misfits to the Capitol CMG family of artists," shares President of Capitol Christian Music Group Peter York. "They bring a unique energy, purpose and creative offering to our valued roster. They are effectively reaching their audience and making an impact in lives across the country with great music, a compelling show and a message of hope. I'm grateful to work with them and for what they represent in the world of hip hop."
With the help of producers Elvin "Wit" Shanhbazian, Chris Batson and Raymond Castro, Social Club Misfits created a dynamic, energetic five-track EP with the hope to inspire their generation to change what modern Christianity looks like. They believe that while the message of Jesus hasn't changed, it is the method that looks different.
"We are encouraging 'misfits' to be who Gods called them to be, not who the world says they should be," Social Club Misfits explains. "We sing different, we dress different and were not embarrassed of the God we serve. We are the misfit generation."
Leading up to the digital release, the duo headlined The Misfit Generation Tour and is now currently on the Therapy Sessions Tour, where they are co-headlining with label mate NF. The hip hop acts are entertaining thousands in major cities across the U.S. The tour kicked off in Chicago on May 4 and will conclude in Memphis on May 22nd.
