The End of Silence is the fifth release and the third full-length album by Rollins Band, led by former Black Flag singer Henry Rollins. The album's cover features a sort of mascot for the band, a stylized drawing of the sun identical to the one tattooed on Rollins' back. The album's liner notes credit the artwork to famed California tattoo artist Rick Spellman, who also tattooed musician Glenn Danzig.
