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.
Just a few years ago a little band from Oklahoma called Hinder was on top of the world with their worldwide smash hit, "Lips of an Angel." Since then, the guys have continued to have success in the rock world, but have recently ran into a bit of bad luck. I had the chance to sit down with the guys from the band to discuss that and had a little fun with them as well.
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.
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.
