THE METAVERSE – “WAGMI”, the debut release from the Metaverse’s first NFT band, Allies, premiered at 8:00 p.m. ET / 5:00 p.m. PT on Wednesday December 22, 2021 at the new TerraZero Entertainment Center in Decentraland, located at 44, -45 (direct jump to location here).

The release marks a series of breakthroughs for NFT-powered and Metaverse-leaning entertainment. It is the first band made up of entirely NFT characters and personalities, and also represents the biggest cross-community collaboration between several of the most famous communities in the space: CryptoPunks, Bored Ape, Cool Cat, World of Women, and a Wicked Cranium.

"Allies is a music group made up of static on-chain assets that integrate NFT communities through performances, shows and events in the metaverse,” shared band co-founder and drummer Cheetah. “WAGMI, short for ‘We Are All Going to Make It,’ is meant to be a celebration of the NFT and Metaverse worlds, while also rallying more people to join in on the fun, community, and creative potential.”

The band is led by guitarist Deeze (representing Bored Ape Yacht Club), owner of the Deeze Gallery, which is depicted in the music video and notably features one of the most valuable collections of NFT art in the world. Other band members are songwriter/drummer Cheetah (CryptoPunks), who is coming off of working with GFunk and Beanie at Pixel Vault on the debut edition of PUNKS Comic; keytar player Kibbee (Cool Cats); bassist French (Wicked Craniums); and, singer Lola (World of Women).

Hosted by rising Metaverse agency TerraZero, the premier event will also be the first time a music video has debuted in the Metaverse. Band members and premiere organizers hope that will set the tone for continued expansion and leveraging of Web 3.0 technologies as a tool for audience expansion and revenue generation.

“We are excited to continue expanding the creative and marketing possibilities of the Metaverse,” shared TerraZero Chief MetaVerse Officer Ryan Kieffer. “Allies is a great band that will appeal to both crypto and general consumers, and we hope people can all join in on the fun at our event.”

The band’s character designs and original animation were directed and produced by Ryan Kieffer and Andrew Seth Cohen of Confidential Creative, the video features the band at their first performance, followed by them attending a gallery show at Deeze Gallery that features loads of actual NFTs owned by band members.

Artwork featured in the Deeze gallery scene includes hoodie CryptoPunks, ArtBlocks Fidenza, ArtBlocks Ringers, ArtBlocks Chromie Squiggle, ArtBlocks Singularity, Killer Acid, and Pop Wonder. The video also features a range of NFT and Metaverse twitter influencers making cameos, including Keyboard Monkey, sobylife, vonmises14, krybharat, punk6529, vincent_van_dough, and beaniemaxi.
