Aussie Band ‘Boy & Bear’ Launch NFTs in Collaboration with Amex

Boy & Bear have launched their own tokenized collectible vinyls as a way to raise money for charity. The project, which was produced by Distributed Collectibles LLC, allows people to purchase the songs on crypto and unlock digital content in return. This is expected to be one of the first NFT collaborations involving Amex who are following suit with their new card that supports cryptocurrency purchases.

The “australian boy bands 1990s” is a project that the Australian band, Boy & Bear, have created. The project uses blockchain technology to distribute music and merchandise.

Multiple winner of ARIA Awards, indie rock band Boy & Bear is propelling itself into Web3 through the launch of an NFT collection in collaboration with American Express. As its name, ‘Boy & Bear x Back The Night’ suggests, the collection coincides with the credit card brand’s ‘Back The Night’ music festival later this month.

The NFTs feature Back The Night digital artwork which resembles artwork from the band’s latest single ‘State of Flight’. There are three tiers of NFTs in the collection, with 200 Blue versions for $15 a piece, four Gold versions for $200 a piece, and a 1/1 Platinum version which is on auction until 10PM BST on May 26th. In addition to their artistic aesthetic, the NFTs also serve as an access key for extra Boy & Bear experiences and merchandise. 

To ensure that the launch is as positive as possible, the band has chosen to have the NFTs coined on the carbon-neutral Fanaply NFT marketplace, with 70 percent of the proceeds going back into the music business via contributions to the Support Act charity. 

“We’ve seen how badly the Australian music industry has been hit over the last couple of years, and having the opportunity to create our own NFTs and provide some awesome experiences with American Express for our fans, all in a way that tangibly gives back to Support Act – feels great,” the Aussie band said in a statement about their inaugural NFT launch. It’s satisfying to be able to contribute a little portion to something larger.”

For those in Oceania wishing to experience Boy & Bear in its full, IRL capacity, you can catch them at their ‘Back The Night’ music festival performance, which takes place at Surly’s American Tavern, Sydney, at 5PM (local time) on May 29th, 2022.

 

The “australian boy bands 2014” is a new, innovative way to monetize music. The band Boy & Bear has partnered with Amex to offer their fans the opportunity to purchase NFTs.
