Army of Mushrooms is the eighth studio album by Infected Mushroom released on May 8, 2012 under Dim Mak Records. It features a cover of "The Pretender" by Foo Fighters, "Serve My Thirst", and "U R So Fucked" (which was released as a single/video on February 14, 2012).

Similar to the release of Vicious Delicious, Army of Mushrooms differs greatly from their previous styles, with experimentation in dubstep,[5] electro house, and drum and bass.[2][3] Some versions of the album contain a remastered version of "Bust A Move" from Classical Mushroom; this same edit of Bust A Move is included on their previous studio album Legend of the Black Shawarma.[citation needed]

The album is the first Infected Mushroom album to be released on the Steve Aoki label Dim Mak, with whom Infected Mushroom signed in late 2011. The singles "Nation of Wusses" and "U R So Fucked" were released on Dim Mak and licensed through Universal Music. The promotional single "The Pretender" was released primarily on Dim Mak.

The album debuted at number 71 on the Canadian Albums Chart.[6]
