Gah, less than a month away - can't wait to pour over that beautiful deluxe edition.

Out of curiosity, in regards to the tracklisting, unlike the normal "and then we slapped three extra tracks on the end of the record because we need to move units" method, Converge chose to incorporate the bonus tracks as part of the record. I like this approach, I'm just curious how the band feels this affects the album? Of course, I presume you wouldn't have done it this way if you didn't feel it worked, but how do you compare listening to the album with and without the extra songs? Simply "different" experiences?

Postscript: It's been too long since I've logged in here so I just wanted to say thank you, as always, to Deathwish for its continued support of the "extreme" (or whatever, fuck labels) music scene. It was really sad to read about Hydra Head closing shop; I sure hope you guys continue on forward. I know the waters are rough, but your dedication does not go unnoticed or unappreciated.

Tracklisting:
We don't view them as "Bonus" Tracks, but an alternate track listing, and in many ways the preferred tracklisting.
We placed the songs in the order that we felt work best for the flow of the album, same as we've done with every release.
There are a lot of factors that come into play in doing that. Personal preference, intention during writing, tuning, flow, etc.
As always, a large amount of time and attention to detail was put into the decision making process.

Thanks.

Ah, forgive the terminology – "bonus" was taken directly from the King's Road description.

Anyway, I know my mess of text was not as clear as it should have been, sorry about that, but you started to touch one what I was asking: You said the deluxe edition and LP has "in many ways the preferred tracklisting." So, I was curious if you could speak to that a little more - what made you guys choose have a separate tracklist for the regular CD edition? Also, if you listened to the two, how do you compare the experiences?

Thanks!

We didn't choose to have two different track listing per se, but Epitaph suggested it for a variety of reasons.
I have listened to both of them and feel they are both great. I am bias of course.
Thanks.

Well done all AWLWLB is amazing, it took me a few listens to get it under my skin(always a good sign), now I can't wait for my copy to immerse myself in the artwork etc.

Thank you for Pre-ordering the new Converge album, "All We Love We Leave Behind" from Deathwish.

The Good News: As a thank you to all of our vinyl Pre-order customers, we are sending you a Digital version of the full album now. The digital link will be coming from Epitaph/Kingsroad download system, keep an eye out for an email from them in your mailbox. CD Pre-orders have shipped as well.

As always, thank you for your patience and continued support.

Thanks very much to let us listen to this new master piece two days ago...
It helps me a lot to go through this sad day, when I had to "leave my love behind"...


A Glacial Pace, Coral Blue, Empty on the Enside, Shame the Way, Sadness comes Home and of course AWLWLB (incredible surprise, you guys can always blow my mind) are my favorites tracks, but the whole album is truly amazing.
I can't wait to get my CD (and LP a bit later), to get amazed by the artworks and finaly read the lyrics.


Thanks again. Sincerely.

I got my cd early which was awesome, the record rips, to the point that my brain lost track by track ten

Are the three extra tracks from the previously released 7"s the exact same versions as they are on 7"? Or were they re-recorded? A song like Runaway would feel out of place considering the production sounds different. As does On My Shield of course being originally recorded more than two years ago.
