Here We Stand, released in November 2007,[2] is the 6th studio album by English punk rock band Cock Sparrer. Recorded by former Vibrators bassist, Pat Collier, and mixed by Rancid's Lars Frederiksen and Michael Rosen, the album is the band's first new material for ten years. In addition to the 14-track CD version, the album was also released on vinyl as a picture disc. The tracks "Will You?" and "So Many Things" were omitted to improve the overall sound quality.[3]

A 7-inch picture disc single, limited to 1000 copies, was released at the same time. It contained "Too Late" (the album's opening song), and a rerecorded version of "Because You're Young" exclusive to the picture disc single.[4]
