Here We Stand is the second studio album by Scottish rock band The Fratellis, following their successful debut Costello Music from 2006. The album was released on 9 June 2008 in the United Kingdom and 10 June 2008 in the United States, and was their first release on Island Records.

Here We Stand reached and peaked at number five in the UK Albums Chart on 15 June 2008.[2] Each single released off the album included three B-Sides (except for "A Heady Tale" which only included two.) Tell Me a Lie was featured on the EA Sports title FIFA 09, while "My Friend John" was on Forza Motorsport 3. The voiceover work in the commercials was provided by Karl Pilkington.
