Hinder is an American rock band from Oklahoma that was formed in 2001 by drummer Cody Hanson, guitarist Joe Garvey, and singer Austin Winkler. The band was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame in 2007.



Formation and early history

Before the band formed, Austin Winkler sang in an Oklahoma City cover band until July 2001,[3] when he met drummer Cody Hanson and guitarist Joe Garvey at a college party.[4] Soon after meeting, the three formed Hinder and began performing at an Oklahoma City club called The Blue Note, building a local fan base. Profits from the shows went to advertising, as well as paying the expenses for the group's first release, an EP entitled Far from Close. The EP was released in 2003 on the independent label Brickden Records, and sold around 5,000 copies.[5] Two years later, bassist Mike Rodden and rhythm guitarist Mark King joined the band.[3] Winkler writes the majority of the band's music, along with drummer Cody Hanson.[6]

Extreme Behavior: 2004–2007

After the release of Far from Close, Hinder was offered record deals by Atlantic Records, Roadrunner Records, and Universal Records, eventually signing with Universal Records in 2005;[5] later that year, their major-label debut album, Extreme Behavior, was released.[7] The album was produced by Brian Howes, who, along with Cody Hanson and Austin Winkler, wrote most of the material on the album.[8] The album was engineered by Mike Fraser. The album reached triple-platinum certification for sales,[7][9] albeit Allmusic calling Extreme Behavior "one of 2005's worst albums".[8]

Hinder toured and released singles in support of their first album. Hinder's debut single, "Get Stoned", was released in October 2005. The band's second single, "Lips of an Angel", entered charts in the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and Singapore; the song lasted for 41 weeks in the New Zealand charts, two weeks of which were spent at the number one spot. The band's third single, "How Long", was released in September 2006 and appeared at number six on the US Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

In 2006, As a Christmas gift to their fanclub, the Hinder Army, the band recorded their version of the public domain song "A Little Drummer Boy" and released it on their fanclub website.[citation needed]

Their second song to be released in New Zealand was "Better Than Me", which spent three weeks on the New Zealand charts, peaking at number 16.

In 2007, Hinder was inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame,[5] and in October of the same year, the band released their limited edition CD/DVD of Extreme Behavior entitled You Can't Make This Shit Up.

On December 21, 2007, Winkler was arrested in Jonesboro, Arkansas on suspicion of DUI after leaving his engagement party.[10]

Take It to the Limit: 2008–2009

The first single from the band's second album, "Use Me", was released on July 15, 2008 and peaked at #3 on the US Mainstream Rock Tracks chart. The second album, Take It to the Limit, was released on November 4, 2008; the album marked a change in style in Hinder's music in that it moved the band in a slightly more glam metal-influenced direction. They announced the release of the album's second single, "Without You," through their official MySpace page on September 13, 2008. Take It To the Limit debuted at number four on the Billboard 200 with 81,000 sales its first week and ended up going Gold in the US

Through late 2008, Hinder headlined the Jägermeister Music Tour with Trapt and Rev Theory also on the bill.

Winkler and actress/model Jami Miller were married in late July 2008. Winkler met Miller while filming the music video for Hinder's cover of "Born to Be Wild", which was filmed for NASCAR.[11]

In early 2009, Hinder embarked on Motley Crue's Saints Of Los Angeles Tour, which also included Theory of a Deadman and The Last Vegas.

In July, Hinder embarked on Nickelback's Dark Horse Tour, which ran through Live Nation outdoor amphitheaters; other bands involved on the tour were Papa Roach and Saving Abel.

All American Nightmare: 2010–present

During early 2010, the band was engaged in writing and recording material for their third album,[12] titled All American Nightmare.[13] The album was released on December 7, 2010, with the first single, the title track, released on September 14, 2010.[12][14] Although the album was originally planned to be produced by Howard Benson, Kevin Churko was later announced to be the producer.[12]

Winkler said that the group started recording during the touring cycle for Take It To The Limit. “We wrote 70 or so songs, recorded about 50 and cut it down to 12," the singer explained. "It’s something that we’ve never done before, so it’s like our ultimate baby. A lot of the [other] songs could be shit, too, we don’t know. You don’t really know until you put it out there and have more than two people’s opinion on it.” Both he and drummer Cody Hanson mentioned the song "Memory" as one that was a strong contender for the final cut. "It’s about being with your chick — the chick you’ve been with for a while, not some chick you’ve met on the road — and about being able to still have a good time with your wife or long-time girlfriend," said Hanson. "I’ve been in a relationship myself for nine years, so it was cool to write a song like that.” Hinder will also be at Bayfest 2011 on the Pepsi stage in Mobile, Alabama alongside local talents such as, Skrayp, and Top Of The Orange on October 8, 2011.[15]

Live performances

Hinder have allegedly often sent scouts into the crowd at their concerts to pass out VIP passes to good-looking women.[16]
