Spinal Clock is the twenty-eighth studio album by avant-garde guitarist Buckethead. The title may refer to Buckethead's back injury in April 2010.[citation needed] It is his first solo album released since then.

The album was announced and available for pre-order on August 25 via the TDRS Music page, suggesting a release date on or near September 15. Eventually the album was released on September 16, when 350 signed copies of the album were sent out. The rest of the signed orders and the regular orders were sent a day later.[1] The site also contains 30-second samples of every track from the album, except for "Spinal Cracker" which can be heard in its entirety.[2]

The album consists of nine tracks played with a banjo guitar. Originally, the first 300 copies of the album were limited-edition, signed and numbered by Buckethead, while the rest was going to be released as a regular non-limited CD, but due to the high demand of the album, Travis Dickerson announced that the number of limited-edition copies had been extended to 500.[3] On September 13 it was announced that the 500 limited-edition copies had sold out.
