Sam Sniper is an alt-country band from Athens, Georgia. Members include Chris Barnett on guitar and vocals, Andrew Klein on guitar and vocals, Nicholas Mallis on bass guitar, Bill Bacon on drums, and all four members singing harmonies. Since releasing their debut album, "We’re Not Coming Back This Way," a self-produced self-recorded effort by members Andrew Klein and Chris Barnett, Sam Sniper has been nominated for Best Southern Rock Band, Album of the Year, and Artist of the Year by the 2012 Flagpole Music Awards in Athens, GA. Drawing on songs written collaboratively by the two, "We’re Not Coming Back This Way" deals with love, heartbreak, purpose, and intergalactic jungle warfare. A single song can move from country ramble to explosive rock, while grooving together within the warm embrace of pop sensibility.
