    Those rockers in Hinder have officially parted ways with their lead singer Austin Winkler. A replacement has not yet been named.

    Earlier this year, Winkler left the band's national tour due to personal reasons. Hinder continued to tour with guest lead vocalists helping out, including Jared Weeks from Saving Abel.

    "I'm really proud of what we accomplished over the years," said Hinder drummer (and songwriter/producer) Cody Hanson. "We hold no animosity towards Austin, and wish him the best. Although it was a difficult decision, it was the best thing for everyone involved and time for us to move on."

    "This summer/fall tour was a tough one," he continued. "We want to thank the fans for all their overwhelming support. We couldn't have made it through everything without you. We are very excited about the future of Hinder and can't wait to share the next chapter with all of you!"

    Who should sing for Hinder and replace Austin Winkler?
