Wellwater Conspiracy is the fourth studio album by the American rock band Wellwater Conspiracy. It was released on September 9, 2003, through Megaforce Records.


The album was recorded in 2002 at Space Studio in Seattle, Washington. The band members produced the album themselves. The album was mixed by Adam Kasper. The album includes a cover of the Thunderclap Newman song "Something in the Air". David Fricke of Rolling Stone said Wellwater Conspiracy "upgrade the fragrant eccentricity of vintage U.K. flower power—spaced riffing, spiked-afternoon-tea lyrics—with modern muscle."[2] The band performed the song "Wimple Witch" from this album on the Late Show with David Letterman in 2003.
