Hinder Reschedules

When we last checked in with Hinder, the band’s tour bus had crashed outside of Cookeville, Tenn., Nov. 18 and the bus driver had lost his service dog.  Now the band has rescheduled its November-December dates and the driver has been reunited with his pooch.

According to the Hinder camp, heavy rains are thought to be the cause of the crash that resulted in multiple injuries suffered by the band and crew. Bassist Mike Rodden and the tour’s lighting tech suffered broken ribs and the bus driver underwent surgery.

But all is fine now and the band expressed its thanks to all involved.

“We’d like to give special thanks to the Putnam County Emergency Management Agency and the Cookeville Regional Medical Center for taking care of us,” members of Hinder said in a statement. “The outpouring of messages that we’ve received from our fans has been incredible.  We definitely feel the love and appreciate each and every one of you.  We look forward to being back on the road in 2016!”

The dog, an Australian Shepherd named Cuzco, was eventually recovered.
