Ecstatic Peace! is a record label based in Easthampton, Massachusetts, founded in 1981 by Sonic Youth member Thurston Moore. The premiere release was a split cassette featuring spoken word performances from Michael Gira of Swans and Lydia Lunch. The label's name is borrowed from a line in Tom Wolfe's 1968 nonfiction novel The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.

Artists on Ecstatic Peace! include TAMHush Arbors, be your own PET, Awesome Color, Black Helicopter, Free Kitten, Notekillers, Magik Markers, Tall Firs, Pagoda, Monotract, and Violent Soho.[citation needed]

In February 2006, Moore signed a deal with Universal to distribute the label's albums.[1]
