Retribution Gospel Choir is the eponymous debut album from Low singer-songwriter-guitarist Alan Sparhawk's band Retribution Gospel Choir. The album was released in the US on March 18, 2008, through Mark Kozelek's Caldo Verde Records. Kozelek also produced the album.

According to the Caldo Verde website:

The first 1,000 copies pressed came with a 4 track bonus disc, titled RGC DUB, featuring untitled dub recordings. This version was only available through the Caldo Verde Records website link. The album was also pressed on limited edition vinyl in May 2008 and sold exclusively through Aural Exploits' website. The song "Breaker" first appeared on the Low album Drums and Guns in 2007 but was originally a Retribution Gospel Choir song.
