Disguises is the fifth studio album by American rock band Aiden. Disguises was recorded some time between 2010 and 2011. Unlike previous albums, Disguises has a large usage of gang vocals. It is also their last album with founding drummer Jake Davison.

This is the only album by Aiden to not chart on Billboard Top 200, or any other chart.

So far, three singles have been released. "Walk Among the Dead", "Hysteria" (the first music video of the album), and "A Portrait of the Artist", which was released on their personal YouTube channel "Aidenvision". The music video for "Hysteria", featuring lyrics critical of religion, shows William Francis singing in a priest's robe juxtaposed with stock footage of burning churches, religious leaders, and social unrest. The music video for "A Portrait of the Artist" shows the other Aiden band members kidnapping Francis and ultimately hanging him and notably features drummer Ryan Seaman wearing a bandanna in place of Davison. No video for the first single, "Walk Among the Dead" has been released.
