Pumpkin is the sixty-third studio album by guitarist Buckethead, and the thirty-third installment of the Buckethead Pikes Series.[1] The album was part of a series of thirty pike albums that were released in close succession from one another during 2013.

The album was announced on October 29. Unlike any of the other albums from the series, this one is the first album in the series to have been released for free. A limited edition version consisting of 300 copies of an untitled white album signed by Buckethead himself was announced on November 2 to be released on November 15. Unlike any of the limited edition albums, Pumpkin was signed with green ink instead of the traditional black ink used in the previous limited editions.

On November 15, the digital version of the album stopped being available for free. A standard edition was announced but has not yet been released.

On November 27, Pikes was released as a continuation of this album as seen by the numeration on the tracks and album cover and title.
