Five Mile Sniper - Can't Go On

Five Mile Sniper - Can't Go On
Five Mile Sniper's debut album The Sound of Trees is set for release October 24th 2014. Founding member John Baxter draws from a music career that spans over 25 years. John played as guitarist in renowned pop band Holocene and established many bands including Melbourne 3 piece Alcotomic with Living End drummer Andy Strachan. In 2003 John established alt-rock outfit Prettymess, who were signed to Shock Records and produced a top 20 album, Greyscale Broadcast.

After the demise of Prettymess in 2006, John headed to the US. With nothing more than an acoustic guitar and harmonica, he travelled coast to coast in a gold '72 Caprice, playing bars and busking. In 2009, he met pianist Henry F. Griffin in Baton Rouge and they began performing, writing and recording together. From this collaboration many tunes would eventuate on the Five Mile Sniper debut album.

Recorded in Memphis, Tennessee and Melbourne, the album title The Sound Of Trees is analogous to suffering in silence. The Sound Of Trees is a euphemism for the decaying natural world we've inherited that has no voice - a cry for help that cannot be heard. It conveys moments of optimism with an undertone of loss.

About this track...

Written from personal experience, the song explores the subject of youth suicide, supported by an unsettling video clip shot in Poland by the brilliantly dark Lukasz Pytlik. All proceeds from the sale of ‘Can't Go On’ will be donated to ReachOut for the prevention of youth suicide and depression.
