Social Club signs to powerful record label and alters name
After several successful independent releases, Social Club has signed a major record deal and rebranded in the process.
The South Florida-based duo of Marty and FERN is now called the Social Club Misfits, and their next EP, The Misfit Generation, will release May 6 on Capitol CMG, a Nashville-based label owned by Universal Music Group.
The Social Club Misfits join a stacked Capitol CMG Label Group artist roster which includes Hillsong UNITED, TobyMac, Chris Tomlin, Amy Grant, Jesus Culture, Jeremy Camp, Michael W. Smith, Crowder, Kari Jobe, Matthew West, Mandisa, Colton Dixon, Britt Nicole and NF, among others.
BIGGER TOURS, MORE MUSIC, BIGGER BUDGETS, AND MORE MISFITS

“We are honored to welcome Social Club Misfits to the Capitol CMG family of artists,” Capitol CMG president Peter York said, according to Music Row. “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.”
“We are extremely excited about our new partnership with Capitol CMG,” the Social Club Misfits said. “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.”
Marty and FERN are reportedly working with producers Wit, Chris Batson and Ray Rock.
