IV is American rock band Winger's first album of new studio material since 1993's Pull. According to frontman Kip Winger, one morning he "just woke up and heard the new Winger record" in his head, knowing just what he wanted to do with it.[2] It was released in October 2006 on Frontiers Records. The album cover was done by DC comic book artist Ethan Van Sciver known for his artwork on titles such as Green Lantern, Flash, Superman, and Batman. Kip Winger was introduced to Van Sciver by a mutual friend of theirs in Florida.
