Hello @blazer232 and welcome to the community,

 

I guess you talk about the band "A Day To Remember".

 

I have checked the profile and I see 7 albums available.

 

What country are you in ?

I'm in the US.  The only albums that I see listed are, "Common Courtesy," and, "And Their Name Was Treason."

 

e: I still also see playlists on their page that previously had songs that are now unavailable to me.

After some researches it happens that all the albums removed are from the same label "Another Victory Records". What I suppose is there is a licensing problem with this label in the US because the albums are all available in the other countries covered by Spotify.

It's possible to expect that when the problems will be fixed the albums come back.

 

Spotify wants all the music in the world available to stream. Unfortunately, sometimes, due to licensing problems or by decision of the artist or label or rightholders, it can happen that some album are not available at all on Spotify or partially available in some countries.

 

Spotify is working hard daily to convince labels/artists to have their music to stream.

 

The best users can do to help is to try to contact labels and ask why the music is not on Spotify.
