Lake Malawi will represent Czech Republic at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest. The indie-pop band was founded by Albert Černý in 2013 and the band's name was inspired by a Bon Iver song. 

Lake Malawi have played over 300 gigs in Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Austria, ​and the United Kingdom. Their music appeared in Czech films and was featured in a major rail carrier advertisement. Currently, the band consists of Albert Černý (lead vocal, guitar), Jeroným Šubrt (bass and keys) and Antonín Hrabal (drums).
