Augustana is the third studio album by the American rock band Augustana, released on April 26, 2011 on Epic Records.[6]

The album's lead single, "Steal Your Heart", was planned for a radio release on February 14 in order to coincide with Valentine's Day, but was released early on February 8 via AOL Music.[7] American Songwriter's review states the album "is full of strong, if not extraordinary material, which is sure to leave an indelible impression."
