4-Way Diablo is the seventh studio album by American stoner rock band Monster Magnet. It was recorded in different recording studios: Sound City Studios, American Studios, The Sunset Lodge and Hydeaway Studios during 2006 and 2007.[4] It was released in 2007, November 5 in Europe and November 6 in the United States where it sold 1,800 copies on its first week of release.

Following the album's release, none of its songs were included in the concert sets. According to lead vocalist Dave Wyndorf, they were not written as live songs, and he determined that they were too delicate to work as such. But he stated that it will change someday when he assembles a mellow set.[5]
