Twisterlend is the sixty-eighth studio album by guitarist Buckethead, and the thirty-ninth installment of the Buckethead Pikes Series.[2] 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 released digitally on November 25 for free, making it the second album in the series to have been released for free (aside from Pumpkin). "Twisterlend" was released on two different limited edition formats. The first one, like Telescape through It Smells Like Frogs, consists of 300 copies of an untitled white album signed by Buckethead himself to be released on December 6. The second version, much like Forgotten Library through Pike 22, consists of an unspecified amount of copies of an untitled white album with hand drawn covers and signed by Buckethead himself to be released on December 6. The second version was only offered until December 3 while the first version lasted until copies sold out.

A standard edition was announced but has not yet been released.
