The discography of Glasvegas, a Scottish Indie rock[1] band, consists of three studio albums and twelve singles. James Allan (vocals and guitar), Rab Allan (guitar), Paul Donoghue (bass) and Jonna Lofgren (drums) formed the band in Glasgow, Scotland in 2003. The band's debut single was the limited edition double A-side single, "I'm Gonna Get Stabbed"/"Ina Lvs Rab", which was released in May 2004.[2] Three further independent singles were released through WaKS and Sane Man, all of which failed to chart although Daddy's Gone released on Sane Man Recordings was voted the No.2 single of the year by the NME.

The band signed with Columbia Records in early 2008 and released two further singles – "Geraldine" and "Daddy's Gone" (a re-release of their third single) – which reached numbers sixteen and twelve on the UK Singles Chart respectively. The band's debut album, Glasvegas, was released in September 2008 and reached number two on the UK Albums Chart. A mini-Christmas album, A Snowflake Fell (And It Felt Like a Kiss), followed in December 2008, which failed to chart in the UK although it reached number fifty-nine on the Swedish Albums Chart. EUPHORIC /// HEARTBREAK \\\ was released on 4 April 2011 and reached No.10 in the UK charts and No.1 in Sweden. The 3rd studio album is slated for release on 2 September 2013.
