Ecstatic Peace! is a record label based in Easthampton, Massachusetts, founded in 1981 by American musician Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth. The label name is borrowed from a line in Tom Wolfe's 1968 nonfiction novel The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test.

The label's releases are eclectic but often experimental or avant- grade. Their premiere release was a split cassette featuring spoken word performances from Michael Gira of Swans and Lydia Lunch.

Artists on Ecstatic Peace! include Hush Arbors, be your own PET, Awesome Color, Black Helicopter, Free Kitten, Notekillers, Magik Markers, Tall Firs, Pagoda, Monotract, and Violent Soho.[1]

In February 2006, Moore signed a deal with Universal to distribute the label's albums.[2]
