"Throwing Rocks" is Sam Sniper's second self-produced album recorded out of their home studio in Athens, GA. Andrew Klein and Chris Barnett, both on vocals and guitar, continue their sovereign tradition of songwriting and producing with drummer Bill Bacon and Nicholas Mallis on bass. Sam Sniper brings a neoteric grunge aspect to their newest album while staying true to the alt-country and psych-pop elements of their first album, "We're Not Coming Back This Way." Since the release of their first album, Sam Sniper has been stretching their way across the southeast playing shows as far as Austin, Texas. The album has gone on to be nominated for 2012 Album of the Year by Flagpole Magazine in Athens, GA. Chris and Andrew started independently recording demos for their new album in the summer of 2012 and worked with Nicholas and Bill throughout the next year to complete their album. "Throwing Rocks" expands on Sam Sniper's introspective vision of purpose, love and escape from reality.
"Their boisterous stage presence and thunderous, room-swallowing harmonies set Flicker ablaze like a summer wildfire."
