Hinder Clears The Smoke

Hinder announces spring dates as the Oklahoma rock band preps for the release of its fifth full-length studio album coming out in May.  Destinations include Green Bay, Chattanooga, Biloxi and Tulsa.

When The Smoke Clears is the new disc, due out May 12 via The End Records/ADA.  Described as running “the gamut from rowdy rock to subtle country influence to memorable pop hooks,” the LP has already spawned a single – “Hit The Ground” – featuring new vocalist Marshal Dutton.

In case you just awoke from a three-year coma, original Hinder vocalist Austin Winkler left in 2013, resulting in former Saving Abel singer Jared Weeks fronting the band on its tour that year.  Members announced Dutton’s entry into the Hinder universe earlier this year.
