Hinder drummer Cody Hanson and vocalist Marshal Dutton are bringing their long in the works project Dangerous Hippies to the forefront during a period of downtime for band, and today (April 29), they're teaming up with Loudwire to bring you the premiere of their new song "1982."

Dangerous Hippies unofficially started in 2011 when Hanson and Dutton (in his pre-Hinder days) formed a songwriting partnership to write a song for a commercial. That collaboration was such a positive experience, they continued to write beyond the initial project, but felt the music was different enough from Hinder to keep it separate.

As for the new track "1982," Hanson says, "'1982' is a fun, upbeat track about a girl that was born in 1982. When I think about pop culture from the '80s, which I love, I remember everything being really fun and vibrant. The song alludes to the fact that no matter how many great things happened that year, she is what made really made the year 1982 special."

The drummer continued, sharing his passion for Dangerous Hippies adding, "We're having an absolute blast already with Dangerous Hippies. That fact that there are no rules and we can blend all of our different inspirations from different genres is super fun and rewarding."

That said, Hanson assures Hinder fans they have nothing to worry about as the band will continue in addition to their Dangerous Hippies pursuits. Have a listen to "1982" below. If you like what you hear, it will be available starting May 1 at digital service providers and you can pre-save it here. Check out the video and the lyrics below:

You're California cool, since 1982

There were fast times at Ridgemont High when Thriller was the thing
But you're the reason 1982 made history they say
1982, it was all about you

You're the exception to the rule, you're 1982

The Eye of the Tiger was the jam in Rocky 3
But you're the reason 1982 was hard to beat they say
1982, it was all about you

In the tape deck was Joan Jett cause' I love Rock N Roll
But you're the reason 1982 was really dope they say
1982, it was all about you

Dangerous Hippies, "1982"
