Slipknot is headed to the metaverse.
The masked metallers have announced the launch of Knotverse, a collaboration with self-described "decentralized gaming ecosystem" The Sandbox. According to a press release, Knotverse will offer "unique NFTs and generative collections, plus metaverse concerts, gaming experiences, fan experiences, unique collaborations, wearables and much more."
"It will ultimately offer fans of the heavy culture utility through unique access to new music, IRL events, festival experiences, merchandise, gear, masks, and more," the release continues.
In a statement, Slipknot's M. Shawn "Clown" Crahan declares, "Slipknot has always been about creating new experiences."
"Opening Knotverse as a shared space is a continuation of our culture as a collective that includes our fans," Crahan says. "Everyone who's ever attended Knotfest, or wanted to, now has an open door to step into a digital version of the experience in The Sandbox that's live 24/7."
