Going the Distance Soundtrack 
A love story between Drew Barrymore and Justin Long is a great foundation for a funny/romantic flick. What could make it better? How about a soundtrack with The Boxer Rebellion, Band Of Skulls, Passion Pit, The Airborne Toxic Event and more?!
Watertown Music is excited to announce the forthcoming release of the soundtrack to the upcoming film, "Going The Distance". The indie-rock mix will be released on both CD and digital formats and boasts some of the greatest names in indie-rock including new music by many of the artists.
London-based indie-rock group The Boxer Rebellion actually perform a new song called "If You Run" IN the movie and are giving away a free download of "Evacuate" from the soundtrack when movie-goers purchase tickets for "Going The Distance" from Fandango.com and Movietickets.com.
About out film, Erin and Garrett are good together–even when they’re apart. When aspiring journalist Erin (Barrymore) moves to San Francisco to finish her last year of school, boyfriend Garrett (Long), an assistant music scout, stays in Manhattan to pursue his ambitions and wait on that promotion he’s been promised. With a webcam connection and frequent flier miles, the two gamely navigate the pitfalls and miscommunications of their bi-coastal romance, dodging bad advice from friends and some predatory singles who won’t take “taken” for an answer. But when it seems their wait is almost over, Erin scores her dream job in California just as Garrett’s career heats up in New York. The big breaks they’ve been hoping for could break them up for good…unless their love can truly go the distance.
