Missiles is the fourth full-length studio album by Canadian indie rock band The Dears, which was released on October 20, 2008 on Dangerbird Records in the United States and MapleMusic Recordings in Canada.



The album was marked by creative tensions within the band. By the time the recording process was complete, most of the supporting musicians had left, leaving only core members Murray Lightburn and Natalia Yanchak. Lightburn subsequently selected several other musicians, including members of Pony Up, as a temporary touring band; most of the band's earlier lineup later returned for the 2011 album Degeneration Street.
