ALBUM DESCRIPTION

Socially Unacceptable is the debut album from Jesus Freaks, originally released in 1993. The album can only be described as pure, unadulterated thrash metal. Many reviewers compared the band's sound to early Metallica, though the Jesus Freaks can never be considered a clone of any band.


Despite the band releasing their debut album on a small independent label, it went on to sell over 15,000 copies in a short amount of time. Few independent bands saw the success and popularity of California's Jesus Freaks. The band toured extensively, including on the successful Hardcore '94 tour with Crashdog and The Clergy and a stint across the U.S. with Mortification in 1995. Unfortunately the original CD and cassette pressings have been scarce and hard-to-find for decades. Roxx Records is proud to be officially releasing Socially Unacceptable on CD and for the first time on vinyl.

Rob Colwell at Bombworks Sound has given the 2020 reissue of Socially Unacceptable and incredible new remaster. It's almost as if you had never heard this album before! The vinyl is pressed on high-quality180-gram audiophile black vinyl at 45 RPM for the ultimate sound experience. The debut album and their follow-up will also be re-released on CD for time since 1993. Also being released on CD is the band's 1996 self-titled album.
