Desperate Measures Launch Album With Exclusive NFT Drop?

Punk Isn’t Dead, It’s Minted! The London-based punks have launched their latest album with an NFT drop prepared by LuchaCoinNFT.

New Zealand-born punks Desperate Measures released their brand-new mini-album Rinsed last October to critical acclaim.

The Rinsed sessions3 produced two singles – the stomping first single, The Rich-Tual and Flowers At Your Door. Channelling the dark energy of Iggy Pop, Lords Of The New Church and The Doors, Flowers At Your Door is a brooding rocker of a track that finds Desperate Measures shifting in a new direction with their new line-up.

Never a band to stick to the norm, Desperate Measures decided to give Rinsed a second press and create artwork that would set them apart from the status quo. Therefore, it was only natural that lead vocalist Butcher teamed up with Steve Kitchen of Combination 13 design in Canada.

The two produced a series of striking cover designs now released as exclusive NFT designs through LuchaCoinNFT.

Says Butcher, “We had a blast designing these NFT’s. They form a great set of brilliant designs and will help the band go forward this year as we reach out to different spaces. Each album cover has been so much fun to work on, and we’re really excited about what we’ve created. We hope the fans will enjoy this ground-breaking, super-cool innovation from Desperate Measures. View the Collection on Rarible.”

Says Stevan Cvjetkovich of LuchaCoin, “LuchaCoin is punk at its core; we’ve never been ones to stick to how things should be done. When we teamed up with Desperate Measures, we knew that we were on to something special. We can’t wait for fans to get their hands on them and for the success they’ll bring to the band.”

When record sales are being squeezed after a pandemic where artists were hit hard with shows cancelled, these exciting new NFT designs will help fund this independent band and will go towards them touring in 2022.
