Avenged Sevenfold on Using NFTs to Give Back to Fans

NFT Now Podcast Season: 1 Episode: 62

June 15, 2022

Avenged Sevenfold is a multiplatinum, chart-topping heavy metal band fronted by Matt Sanders — AKA M. Shadows. Sanders and his band mates were early advocates for NFTs, and like most other people in the space, started out by collecting CryptoPunks and Bored Apes. In fall 2021 they launched their own NFT project, the Deathbats Club, which aims to bring more utility to their community. Holders get metaverse access, web3 sneak peeks, first dibs on concert tickets, and much more.

In our latest episode of the nft now podcast, we cover why rock and metal musicians have been slower to catch on to NFTs, how technological shifts have driven massive changes in the music industry, how NFTs can augment how artists engage with their communities, the merchandising potential of NFTs for artists and musicians, and much more.
