Pike 13 is the forty-third studio album by the guitarist Buckethead, and the thirteenth installment in the Buckethead Pikes Series.[1]

The album was hinted at when Buckethead announced The Mark of Davis shortly after announcing Propellar, leaving a gap between both albums leading people to speculate about the missing Pike 13 album. On May 13, 2013, Buckethead's 44th birthday, Buckethead announced Pike 15 as a limited edition album and shortly after during the day he also released Pike 13. Unlike any of the Pikes released during this period, this album was released immediately as a standard edition album without giving any samples or information about it.

The album shows an unmasked, teenage Buckethead holding an acoustic guitar and hugging his father. The cover appeared at a time when Buckethead's father had been ill[2] and is the first time the artist officially revealed his face to the public.
