Dust is the seventh and final album by the Screaming Trees, released on June 25, 1996.

After an aborted attempt at recording a followup to psychedelic rock and punk rock, Dust contains music that is equally influenced by folk and blues, while still retaining a harder-edged sound. "All I Know" was released as a single from the album and became a success on rock radio. "Dying Days", a song that was also released as a single to some minor success, features Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready.

Kerrang! Magazine selected Dust as the best album of 1996 in their year-end awards.[8] The band toured behind Dust for nearly two years (with former Kyuss and future Queens of the Stone Age leader Josh Homme serving as a touring guitarist), and afterwards went on an extended hiatus, eventually disbanding officially in 2000.
