Biography

Hold the Ground, the much-anticipated follow up to Await Rescue’s 2008 self-titled full-length, is the Napoleon of new releases – short, yet powerful and hell-bent on conquering the ears of those who allow it to invade their ipod playlists. This EP caps off a year’s worth of successful shows in the New England area, spanning from their sold-out album release show at Bill’s Bar in the shadows of Fenway Park in 2008 to the band’s first Boston-to-Miami-and-back East Coast tour in August of 2009.

The Hold the Ground EP was unveiled to yet another sold-out room at the Middle East Upstairs in Cambridge, MA on August 7, 2009, and it very notably marks a step in a new direction and a whole new journey through the depths of Rock n Roll for Await Rescue. The new EP is a stylistic foray into genres made famous by the likes of Incubus and Foo Fighters, a noticeable departure from the band’s more prog-rock oriented self-titled release. Await Rescue is, however, bringing along a few pieces of their roots for the ride; Hold the Ground features a refreshed and revamped incarnation of “Alright”, a fan favorite and crowd pleaser released originally on their self-titled album in 2008. Featuring fuller, more powerful, hard hitting choruses and bridges, the latest version also features Seattle native and Berklee graduate, Jacob Yackshaw, on bass. Trained in jazz and having been a part of numerous bands on both coasts, Jake brings new life to the rhythm section that elevates Await Rescue’s musical creations to new heights.
