Hard rockers Joe “Blower” GarveyMark KingMike Rodden, and Cody Hanson entered the studio with their new singer as of 2013, Nolan Neal, in the spring to record a brand new effort that was co-produced by Hanson and Marshal Dutton. There are no boundaries, and every idea was fair game throughout the process. Hanson says, “We like to think we can do anything. We don’t want to be stuck in a rut with one type of sound or formula. One song might have a country influence, while another might have a pop influence. Then, there are some heavy metal moments. We have every element covered on this record. You’ve got to do what’s best for the song.” After nearly a decade, Hinder are stronger than ever. Hanson concludes, “This band was built around a strong core of hard work and friendship. Like it or not, we’re going to be around for a long time.”

Combining raw riffs with big hooks and vocal harmonies, Hinder takes their cues from rock legends such as Aerosmith, AC/DC, KISS and Guns N’ Roses, and update them with modern guitar sounds. Their debut release catapulted the band to mainstream fame while 2008’s follow up Take It to the Limit surpassed Gold status after debuting at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 with over 80,000 copies sold first week. Third effort, All American Nightmare, dropped in 2010, followed by Welcome To The Freakshow in 2012.

Having toured with the likes of Mötley Crüe and Nickelback to Aerosmith and Papa Roach, Hinder looks forward to continuing their journey in support of their new single and upcoming album.
