Rescue is the fifth studio album by the Canadian post-hardcore band Silverstein. It was released on 26 April 2011,[4] the first full length album to be released through Hopeless Records.

Style[edit]

The album continues their style heard on A Shipwreck in the Sand. It has some very heavy songs similar to that album along with some songs featuring a traditional emo style similar to their early records. It also has some influences from melodic metalcore.

Background information[edit]

Rescue contains two songs from the band's previously released EP album Transitions and a music video has already been released for the song "Sacrifice". On February 5, 2011 the band played a free show in Toronto, with Robby Starbuck filming the event for a music video for the song "The Artist", released on March 28. Frontman, Shane Told revealed that a video will also be released for the song "Burning Hearts".[5] Told also announced that there will be a 7" vinyl release for "The Artist" on their Record Store Day and it will have 3 exclusive covers as B-sides[6] along with there being an iTunes exclusive track for the album as well.[7]

The material on Rescue was described by Told as "a cross between Discovering and Shipwreck".[8][9]
