05. Drowning in the Waves HELL OR HIGHWATER's debut album, "Begin Again", was originally released independently in August 2011 and was reissued with "bonus content" on February 5 via Pavement Entertainment. For more than 15 years, Saller put his blood, sweat, and tears into the Southern California metalcore outfit ATREYU. The seasoned drummer/vocalist hammered out five studio LPs with four of his best friends, while traveling the globe and performing for legions of exuberant fans. Saller lived the dream of every musician: to bring the rock 'n' roll to the hungry, fervent masses. And with HELL OR HIGHWATER, Saller emerges from behind the drum kit, with the same unbridled passion, to ignite the next rock 'n' roll firestorm.
HELL OR HIGHWATER had been brewing for nearly three years, as Saller's songwriting drew inspiration from classic rock, doo-wop, punk and pop. Once armed with a solid collection of tunes, he unleashed his newfound vigor in a slew of gigs, and it felt totally natural. When ATREYU announced their hiatus in January 2011, Saller felt the timing was spot on to bring HELL OR HIGHWATER to the forefront.
