August and Everything After is the debut studio album by American rock band Counting Crows, released September 14, 1993 on Geffen Records.

The album cover depicts handwritten lyrics to a song called "August and Everything After", but the band decided against featuring the song on the album of the same name; it was not until over a decade later that it was played as part of one of their live concerts.

On September 18, 2007, a two-disc deluxe edition of the album was issued. The first disc contains the original album, remastered by Adam Ayan and Stephen Marcussen, with six demos added as bonus tracks. The second disc is taken from the band's penultimate performance during the August tour, recorded at the Elysée Montmartre in Paris, France on December 9, 1994.

The album August & Everything After – Live at Town Hall was released on August 29, 2011, featuring live recordings of the songs from this album.
