Today, the world’s leading bitcoin payment processor, BitPay, announced a partnership with Reprise Records’ artist, Mastodon, making them the first major label band to accept bitcoin through BitPay. Mastodon’s new album, Once More ‘Round the Sun, is scheduled for release on June 24th and will be available at mastodonrocks.com/bitcoin.

Mastodon is one of the most successful hard rock bands of the past decade, both critically and commercially. The band is well-known for its innovative sound and style, making them a perfect candidate for the bitcoin community.

“We’re excited to work with fellow Atlanta-natives BitPay for our new album,” mentioned in a statement by Mastodon, “We want to give our fans as many options to buy our new album as possible and are happy that bitcoin can be one of those choices.”

BitPay is honored to partner with Reprise Records’ artist Mastodon. Having a major label artist embrace bitcoin is a definite sign of bitcoin’s growth and expansion into the world of music,” said BitPay’s Executive Chairman, Tony Gallippi.

In addition to the album release and Mastodon’s summer tour, their brand new music video for “High Road,” directed by Roboshobo, is premiering today on Pitchfork.
