Hinder are back with their brand new single, "All American Nightmare," which is the title track of their forthcoming album set for December 14th release.
For their forthcoming album Hinder decided to mix it up a bit by pushing themselves during the writing process and hiring a new producer. Singer Austin Winkler says he couldn't be any more pleased with the outcome.
"I'm ecstatic about the album," Winkler said via telephone between drags of a cigarette and sips of beer on a recent day off in Nashville. "It's different, babe. I don't know if you've heard this before, but I've never been more proud of a record than I have with this one."
Hinder fans will be able to get a healthy sneak peek of the album on the band's tour, as the group is performing six new songs in concert along with hits like "Lips Of An Angel" and "Without You."
"The heavy songs are heavier," Winkler said of the new tracks. "Where it's lighter, it's lighter. The songs are unique. We probably couldn't label them. You'll have to wait to hear it. It's definitely different. There's some tongue-in-cheek songs in there that the crowd's responding awesome to."
Winkler explained that the songwriting process this time around was far different from for Hinder's previous efforts, 2005's triple-platinum "Extreme Behavior" and 2008's "Take It To The Limit."
"Me and Cody [Hanson, drummer] have been writing for probably a year and a half," Winkler said. "We wrote, I think, 60 or so songs for this record, which is not what we normally do. We normally do whatever the label wants. But for this record, we had to do something different. We had to mix it up a little bit. We wrote a lot of songs. We're going to have 10 on the record and 12 on the deluxe version.
"It was hard. It was kind of cool, though, to sit there and write that many songs and then shape the album, because it all runs together."
