Background

In October 2015 Deathwish's YouTube channel released a preview for the album/video. The trailer contained two songs from the album/video; "Concubine" and "Dark Horse". Noisey writer John Hill described the preview as "[doing] a good job of showing the diversity of Converge's catalogue. The classic "Concubine" is a killer start to the live album, showing the rawness of the band's earlier work updated a little with the live performance. It then leads into a newer cut, "Dark Horse" which sounds even crisper than it did in 2009." [2] On November 14 the video was screened at midnight in Brookline. [2] Thousands of Miles Between Us was released as a digital download, three-disc Blu-Ray collection, and a limited box set that includes a double LP and a 160-page booklet. [2]

The footage ranges from a full 20 song Converge set to over 15 hours of live, rare, and previously unseen footage, which is claimed to span over a decade in the life of Converge. [1] Disc one contains a full 20 song set from the band's Union Transfer (Philadelphia, PA) show All We Love We Leave Behind tour. Disc two and three collectively show over 15 hours of live, rare, and previously unseen footage spanning over a decade of the band, chronologically presented over two Blu-ray discs. The collection features international live performances, interviews, features, music videos, covers, and more. [1]
