The Wombats are fixing to take their act to world of the metaverse.

Just days after the release of their fantastic fifth full-length Fix Yourself, Not The World, the Liverpool indie-rock phenoms have announced a slew of virtual projects for fans, including a metaverse-ready avatar and concert, exclusive access to AMA’s, live acoustic performances, unheard B-sides, rare memorabilia, VIP tickets and more.

Aided by the web3 agency Killectiff, singer Matthew ‘Murph’ Murphy and co. will release 3,000 different NFTs. This drop will be unique as it will be carbon negative, ensuring all emissions from the mint are offset 20 times. The NFTs can be purchased/minted on The Wombats website for 0.07 ETH on Feb. 8. This is more than your traditional NFT because fans and holders will have access to a blockchain game that will unlock unique content. The NFTs will be metaverse ready and can be used in The Sandbox decentralized gaming world. Buyers will also receive blockchain carbon credits from Moss, the world’s largest environmental platform.

“We are looking forward to presenting this unique NFT experience to our fans that will end with a concert at Kollectiff’s stadium in the metaverse,” says Wombats drummer Dan Haggis. “Kollectiff helped us with creating a carbon-neutral NFT because the environment and combating climate change is important to us.”

This project not only offsets carbon emissions but also makes it a carbon-negative NFT collection. When someone mints an NFT in this collection, carbon credit will be bought. Each mint generates 45 kilograms of carbon (approximately 135,000 kg overall) so this project will include the purchase of 3,000 tons worth of carbon offsets to make this campaign carbon negative. Kollectiff will send NFT holders carbon credits via AirDrop.

After purchasing the NFT, fans will have access to a Rubik’s Cube blockchain game in Wombat World. The game is like a classic Rubik’s Cube you have to solve to gain access to features and special events to engage with the band. There will be a live Ask Me Anything event, acoustic performances, sales of rare memorabilia, VIP tickets and more for people who own the collectible. B-sides that didn’t make the latest album will be included as unlockable content within the game.

“We’ve been fans of The Wombats and have seen their success over the years so we are excited to help them be early adopters of the metaverse,” says Rupert Runewitsch, COO of Kollectiff. “We are glad we were able to find a carbon-neutral solution to work together to save planet Earth while being innovative.”

For their last tour stop, The Wombats will take their show into the metaverse as the first to band play a concert in Kollectiff’s meta-stadium — inspired by the famous Brixton Academy in the U.K., a venue The Wombats hold dear.

Kollectiff‘s team has brought this possibility to life for both fans and newcomers seeking to enjoy an immersive band experience at an iconic location; all while being closer to artists across the globe through The Sandbox virtual gaming world”, said Sebastien Borget, COO & co-founder of The Sandbox. “We’re thrilled to welcome The Wombats to engage and socialize with their fans.”
