Glasvegas are a Scottish indie rock band from Glasgow. The band consists of James Allan (vocals), Rab Allan (lead guitar), Paul Donoghue (bass guitar) and Jonna Löfgren (drums). The band received critical acclaim for their debut album 'Glasvegas' which was released in September 2008, which reached No. 2 in the UK Album Charts and was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize in September 2009.

The NME declared, "If The Libertines defined the start of the decade and Arctic Monkeys its middle, then Glasvegas are almost certainly going to define its end and beyond." Their debut album went on to enjoy success in the UK (where it went Platinum) and in Sweden (where it went Gold). The impact of the band in the UK and success of their debut album did not go unnoticed in North America, and as a consequence saw the band tour North America an unprecedented six times between October 2008 and September 2009. The band have mentioned on many occasions during interviews of their commitment to making the breakthrough in the USA and Canada.  

Glasvegas's second album 'Euphoric Heartbreak' was released on 4 April 2011 reaching No. 10 in the UK and No. 1 in Sweden.  In May 2012 the band toured China for the first time and are working on their third album due sometime in 2013.
