Multi-platinum rock act Hinder have announced their new studio album The Reign, set for release August 11 via BMG/The End. For this album, the band dug deep to try to express the emotional struggle of the rock and roll life. They explain: “The constant emotional expenditure that an artist must do in order to always be creating and the ups and downs of a career in music tends to lead to substance abuse and suicides. Unfortunately, the world has lost way too many music legends this way. Overall, this album is definitely darker and heavier than most of the past Hinder albums. However, for our old school fans, it also has a few songs that have that signature ‘Hinder’ sound.”
The Reign includes “Remember Me,” a heavy song about trying to get your head above water while buckling under the weight of how you’ll be remembered. “With chugging guitars and a wall of sound,” says Loudwire, “singer Marshal Dutton’s voice powers through this raucous new track.” The song is now available for download and streaming.

Multi-platinum rockers, Hinder, have sold over 3.8 million albums, more than 7.5 million singles,garnered north of 130 million video views, racked in 80 million spins on Spotify, and counting. On May 13, 2016, they released their first-ever acoustic EP Stripped.
Stripped followed their fifth full-length album When The Smoke Clears. When The Smoke Clears entered the Billboard 200 while also claiming four other Top 10 chart positions upon its May 12, 2015 debut. With over a decade-long career under their belts, and having honed their chops touring with the likes of Mötley Crüe, Nickelback, Aerosmith and Papa Roach, their album When The Smoke Clears breathed a new sound, and new air, into the ever-evolving band. When the Smoke Clears runs the gamut from rowdy rock to subtle country influence, to memorable pop hooks; all of which retain the DNA-distinct spirit of Hinder. That ability to walk the tightrope between genres, without a net, is something the band has had fun with in creating the new album.
As one of the few bands to have massive cross-over success, Hinder’s debut album Extreme Behavior climbed to #1 on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers chart and made its way to #6 on The Billboard 200 chart. The album featured one of the biggest songs of the year, “Lips of an Angel” – a Top 5 hit across EIGHT Billboard singles charts (including #1 on Top 40). Their sophomore effort, Take It To The Limit surpassed their debut, peaking at #4 on The Billboard 200, solidifying Hinder as the biggest new breakout rock act and catapulting them into packed arenas worldwide with their explosive live show. Proving they consistently make hit records, the band followed the first two albums up with a #1 Top Modern Rock/Alternative Album (All American Nightmare), and a #3 Top Hard Rock Album (Welcome To The Freakshow).
With increasing social media stats (1.6 million Facebook followers), it’s clear that Hinder fans are along for the ride and as hungry as ever for more.
