“WAGMI,” the debut song from the musical group consisting of virtual characters from some of the most popular NFT collections, also arrives with an accompanying music video.
Allies, credited as the first band in the metaverse consisting entirely of non-fungible token characters, is about to drop its first single. Take a moment to internalize all this — and then get ready to participate in the making of some metaverse history.
Here’s what adherents of Web3 and the wide world of blockchain need to know about the latest news from the band featuring characters from Bored Ape Yacht Club, CryptoPunks, Cool Cats, World of Women, and Wicked Craniums.
As Allies drummer/songwriter and co-founder Cheetah is credited with saying in an official statement:
“Allies is a music group made up of static on-chain assets that integrate NFT communities through performances, shows, and events in the metaverse. ‘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.”

Wednesday’s world premiere marks yet another first for the metaverse: “WAGMI” will become the first music video to debut in one of its many ever-expanding virtual worlds.
“We are excited to continue expanding the creative and marketing possibilities of the Metaverse,” said Ryan Kieffer, who also serves as Chief Metaverse Officer at TerraZero, an emerging Web3 agency. “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.”
