Roots & Echoes is the fourth full-length studio album by English indie rock band The Coral. It was released on 6 August 2007, and debuted in the UK Albums Chart at No. 8, the lowest entry in that chart for the band (see 2007 in British music). It subsequently dropped out of the top 20 in its second week and had fallen out of the top 50 by its third week in the chart. The band did not subsequently tour for the album very much, appearing at Glastonbury and supporting the Arctic Monkeys on a few dates around Ireland and the UK.

Unlike the band's first four albums, Roots & Echoes has yet to be released in the United States, only available there as an import or via digital download.
