Hinder's certainly had quite the ride to arrive at this point in their careers. Their 2005 debut, Extreme Behavior, sold over three-million copies in the U.S., while its breakthrough single "Lips of an Angel" hit #1 on the Billboard Pop Chart. The record's follow-up in 2008, 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. Meanwhile, their third effort, All American Nightmare, dropped in 2010, followed by Welcome To The Freakshow in 2012 . Along the way, the band has shared the stage on national tours with everyone from Mötley Crüe and Nickelback to Aerosmith and Papa Roach.
The multi-platinum Oklahoma City hard rockers Joe "Blower" Garvey, Mark King, Mike Rodden, and Cody Hanson — entered the studio in the spring to begin recording a brand new effort which will be co-produced by Hanson and Marshal Dutton. There are no boundaries, and every idea is going to be 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."
