Beyond the Neighbourhood is the third studio album by English rock band Athlete and was released in the United Kingdom on 3 September 2007 by Parlophone (see 2007 in British music) and was released in the United States on 25 September by Astralwerks.[6] The album peaked at #5 in the UK Album Charts,[7] and eventually turned out to be the band's last album on Parlophone before parting company. It is not clear if the band left after their deal ended, or the label were not keen on renewing their contract.

The album has a more low-key sound than the band's two previous efforts, having been recorded by the band themselves in their own studio. Jonny Pilcher contributes additional guitar on tracks 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 9 and 11. Pilcher then played live with the band on the subsequent tour.
