Hinder Concerts Schedule
Created in 2001, Hinder is an American post-grunge rock band from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. The bands influences include Bush, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Def Leppard, Ozzy Osbourne and many more. Their style resembles the mainstream rock sound flooding radios in the early 2000s. Similar acts include Three Days Grace, Papa Roach, and Trapt.
The group began when former singer Austin Winkler met the other members at a party. Cody Hanson and Joe Garvey approached Winkler after he finished performing. Soon the group began writing and performing in the local area. The group built a small following and released their first EP, Far From Close. The unsolicited music sold well garnering the attention of record labels. This led to them adding Mark King and Mike Rodden to the ensemble. In 2005, Hinder inked a deal with Universal Records and began work on their debut album.
Extreme Behavior released and sold over 3 million copies. It garnered huge mainstream success; yet, critics had mixed opinions on the record. “Lips of an Angel” became a college girl favorite in 2005 and topped charts worldwide. Hinder gained popularity in Canada, New Zealand, the US and many other countries. They spent the next two years touring in support of their album. In 2007, Winkler was arrested for suspicion of DUI outside of Batesville, Arkansas.
One year later, the band released their follow-up, Take it to the Limit. The album received modest success and continued the bands popularity. They followed by headlining the Jägermeister Tour with Trapt and Theory of a Deadman. Hinder continued the trend throughout the next two years performing on Tour with Nickleback and others. In 2010, they released their third record, All American Nightmare. The album proved to be the beginning of a downhill slide for the group. In 2012, the group came out of the studio with another mediocre album titled, Welcome to the Freakshow. Shortly after, Winkler went into rehab and Hinder moved on without him. In 2014, they announced Nolen Neal as the permanent singer.
