The Toxik Idols are the world’s first and only “undead” rock band. Created from the stitched together parts and pieces of recently deceased rock musicians and wannabe pop stars, the four resulting bodies were then reanimated back to life through a secret, scientific process in an attempt to create the ULTIMATE rock band. Due to an extensive and ongoing cover up campaign, the band’s fans and the public at large remain completely unaware of this.
Created sometime between 2010 and 2012 by disgraced surgeon, inventor and multimillionaire Dr. Robert Elliot, and utilizing the recording skills of award winning hard rock producer Lane Roarke, The Toxik Idols quickly rose to worldwide fame.
Massive tours and multi-million dollar merchandising deals followed, thanks in no small part to the fact that Dr. Elliot, in an attempt to maximize the band’s influence, embedded subliminal messages into The Toxik Idols’ recorded music tracks. As a result, teens and young adults who hear their music quickly become infatuated with the band, their merchandise and, most importantly, their anarchistic ideology.
In a world obsessed with celebrity worship, most people are unable to see through the band’s rock god personas and understand what it is that they really are: pre-packaged, pop culture monsters designed to influence the youth of the world into acts of rebellion, chaos and disorder.
Our story begins when 15 year old mega-fan Brian Bailey accidently discovers The Toxik Idols’ secret. Now they know Brian’s learned the truth and he’s on the run for his life!
But can he stay alive long enough to expose The Toxik Idols for what they really are?
