What is known about the virtual band? The project’s manager Nicholas Adler stated that Kingship plans to hold online concerts at the metaverses, as well as release their own NFTs. He admitted that he was inspired by one of the first virtual bands, Gorillaz. Adler added:

“We’re developing sounds, we’re developing stories and narratives. I think that the project, the process, and the music will be something that consumers and fans will see online as we develop it.”
