It's cause you have the guitar so close to the amp, it's just a bit of feedback, perfectly normal with any gainy pedal

Doesn't matter if I move my guitar further away.

i wouldn't consider that noise acceptable. get a refund.
punk isn't dead, it's always smelled that way.

That's not static. It's oscillation of some sort. Definitely return it.

As a sidenote, do you think ProGuitar Shop will ship me a new one without me having to send the old one back?

Pffffft it's gonna take like a month to ship there and back plus I gotta pay for the postage..

No, you're gonna have to send it back. And they shouldn't make you pay for postage, seeing as how it's busted.

Yeah, that's way busted. you could try using a noise gate if you really don't wanna go through sending it back, but I find noise gates can easily ruin tone.
