You've been asking for it ~ And now your wait is almost over!!

Clues To A Poor Man's Briefcase
Clues To A Poor Man's Briefcase

To the fans of our beloved Static-P, you've been so patient in waiting for the last few installments of the Criminal Idol series…  Well, your patience is finally paying off!!  


Criminal Idol ~ The one-of-a-kind AniMusical production from Static-P is almost ready to be released!

The story follows a group of students, caught up in a bombing at a music performance competition. (view the current playlist here.) 

The last few songs are almost complete, the artwork is well underway, and we've all been busy putting together some merch that we know you will LOVE!!  

In order to make this a reality, we do need your help…  While we know that the production of this album is definitely going to happen, we can move things along much faster with some cash assistance.  Because hey~ people gotta eat, initial orders need to be placed, and the boogie man that lives in Ryan's basement studio must be kept quiet...  These things all cost MONEY!

I know, I know…  there are a million ways out there to make some money… we were thinking of putting out “P” jars next to the tip jars at local businesses, going door to door, telemarketing, selling random body parts… you name it.  And then, we said “Hey!  Why not put together some great packages of stuff for our fans??”

This way, YOU can own a piece of the action!

A Reason For Suffering
A Reason For Suffering

(You were thinking the “P” jars would win out, weren't you?  I know... but SOMEBODY thought people would get the wrong idea...)

So, we put our heads together over here at Black Static and Swerve, and our staff came up with some pretty cool ideas for stuff!  We've got digital downloads, CD's, USB drives, artbooks, and PLUSHIES!  …not to mention your name in the credits and our unending gratitude!  

I'm sure as you browse our reward selections, you will find something that will improve your life in numerous ways… and just imagine…  

You're gonna find out who the bomber is!!!

When The Darkness Comes
When The Darkness Comes

Most of all, we just want to thank you a TON for joining us on this tremendous journey.  It means so much to all of us at Black Static and Swerve to be connected with this amazing community of people from all over the world!  Whether you choose to be a part of this campaign or not, be sure to join us at bss.studio and be a part of the most incredible group of people in the known universe! 

...but we all know you want SOMETHING from this release…  it's ok, we won't tell anyone.  ;)

The Top 3 Common Objections... and their answers =)

#3 - "Ummm...  What just happened?"

-Great question, we're here to help you out!  Just click on any of the photos, and you will be taken to a video or playlist from the series.  Soon, you will understand completely!

I'm Sorry!
I'm Sorry!

#2 - "I don't even know who Static-P is."

-Perfect!  Here's what to do... Just click on any of the photos.  In fact, click on ALL of the photos, listen to all of the songs over and over and over again until you can't stand it.  Then, all of a sudden, you catch yourself singing these songs throughout the day.  You know all of the words, and you find yourself looking forward to hearing them again!  (Major labels and radio stations have been using this technique for decades - now it's YOUR turn to run with the big dogs!)

Dream On!
Dream On!

#1 - "I love all of this stuff!!  I just don't have any money!"

-Yeah... We know the feeling.  It's a great position to be in though, because NOW you can get creative!  Here are just a few ideas:

-> Sell some stuff you don't need anymore

-> Borrow some money (just be sure to pay it back!)

-> Ask your parents if they need any work done around the house

-> Ask your neighbors if they need any work done around the house

-> Win a pie-eating contest

-> Mow some lawns

-> Shovel some snow

-> Clean some windows

-> Ask for something here as a Christmas present

-> [insert your good idea here]

I suppose that's all for now...  Keep checking back for updates, as we will be adding more photos and other content throughout the campaign.

Risks and challenges

Our plan is to have everything delivered by Christmas of 2019, though there may be some challenges when it comes to the Book of Art and Plushies. These items take longer to manufacture than the other products, so delivery may be delayed. We will make sure to keep you up to date on the process, so you won't be left in the dark. Thanks for understanding!
