Mastodon Makes Waves With 6th Position on Billboard

Each week Billboard has been putting out lists of the top selling albums to radio stations, various television channels and to the general public on the Internet.

Recently Mastodon debuted it’s new album Once More ‘Round The Sun. Many readers will remember that this album was sold via Bitcoin for preorders as we previously reported.

BitPay had previously announced a partnership with Warner Bros. Records artist, Mastodon, making them the first major label band to accept bitcoin through BitPay.

“We’re excited to work with fellow Atlanta-natives BitPay for our new album,” had said Mastodon in a statement at the time. “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.”

It now appears that giving fans a choice on a plethora of options and including bitcoin has certainly paid off.

Mastodon this week debuted on the Billboard 200 chart with it’s highest position in the history of the band taking home the 6th spot on the chart.
