Austin Winkler's temporary hiatus from Hinder earlier this year turned into a permanent split. The official announcement came last week from his bandmates, and now the singer has spoken out about parting ways with the band, his recent sobriety and starting a new project.
Earlier this year Hinder hit the road without frontman Austin Winkler, leaving fans wondering what the future might hold for the band and their estranged singer. Hinder have now revealed that they have officially parted ways with Winkler.
Hinder have suffered another unfortunate setback during their current tour run. Scheduled to appear at the Boise Music Festival in Boise, Idaho, on July 27, the band has been forced to withdraw from the event after a tour bus accident resulting in injuries for members of the band and crew.
Rockers Hinder have a jam-packed touring schedule for the next two months so when frontman Austin Winkler requested a temporary leave of absence, the band sprung into action to fill his shoes for their upcoming shows.
Hinder found their first major crossover hit song with 'Lips of an Angel,' which is romantic in its own way despite the fact that frontman Austin Winkler is singing about being with a past love when his current girlfriend is still nearby.
After announcing a number of shows over the last month, Hinder have revealed the full itinerary for their upcoming North American tour. The band will be hitting the road to support their latest album, 'Welcome to the Freakshow,' which arrived in stores in December.
Hinder exploded upon the scene with their 2005 debut ‘Extreme Behavior,’ which sold over 3 million copies and spawned five singles that landed on the rock charts including the massive hit ‘Lips of an Angel.’ Their following two albums also did well and had top 10 rock singles, and now the Oklahoma band returns with their fourth effort, ‘Welcome to the Freakshow.’
Hard rockers Hinder are back with a new album, ‘Welcome to the Freakshow,’ out Dec. 4, and frontman Austin Winkler isn’t holding back when it comes to opening up about the inspiration behind the album’s heavy tracks. Winkler says most of the songs are a reflection of “a really, really dark drug binge,” which drove him to rehab after the band finished the album.
Avenged Sevenfold gave bands a deathbat beat down to enter Loudwire’s Cage Match Hall of Fame with five straight victories. Now it’s time for two new bands and their brand new singles to go head to head.
