This is the only Nonpoint album to feature guitarist Zach Broderick, who joined the band in late 2008 following the departure of original member Andrew Goldman. The album was recorded in Racine, WI and was produced by Mudvayne singer Chad Gray and guitarist Greg Tribbett.

The album debuted No. 59 on the Billboard 200 chart. Miracle is the second highest debut of the band's career. It also landed at No. 5 on the Rock Albums chart in its first week of release.

It was announced in February 2010 that the album was to be released on April 27, 2010, however it was delayed and was announced on March 10 that the release date would be on May 4, 2010.[4]
