Fallow is the debut album by The Weakerthans.

It was released in 1997 on G7 Welcoming Committee Records in Canada, and in 1999 on Sub City Records in the United States.

The songs "Letter of Resignation" and "Anchorless" were originally written for Propagandhi, the band which John K. Samson left to form the Weakerthans. "Letter of Resignation" appeared on the Propagandhi/F.Y.P. split 7" and "Anchorless" on the album Less Talk, More Rock.

Epitaph Records, the band's current label, rereleased Fallow (along with Left and Leaving) in Canada on November 6, 2007.[2]
