Albino Slug is the twenty-second studio album by guitarist Buckethead. It is also the fifth album originally only being sold on tour. It is now available for purchase online through TDRS Music.

The announcement of this album came with the confirmation of two other albums featuring Buckethead, The Dragons of Eden and Bolt on Neck by the Frankenstein Brothers (consisting of Buckethead and That 1 Guy):

"Spooner Arks" refers to early Ark producer Charles Spooner.[2]

On March 18, 2009, a seven-minute long solo was added to "Forgotten Trail", and made available with the iTunes release of the album.

The album is being re-released on November 15, 2017 under a new title, new artwork, and will include re-recorded versions of "Redeem Team" and "Siege Engine". A Limited edition version will feature a DVD with live performance of "Redeem Team" or "Siege Engine", a signed and numbered cover, signed photo, poster and sticker.[3]
