Hinder Announce 2013 North American Tour
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.
The trek launches Feb. 21 in Council Bluffs, Iowa and will last just over a month with the final date scheduled for March 24 in Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan.
The band is off to a solid start with the single 'Save Me' doing well at radio, and there are more hard-rocking tracks on 'Welcome to the Freakshow' like 'Ladies Come First' and 'See You in Hell' that are destined to be live favorites, as well. In addition, the band got a little more eclectic on their new disc with songs like the ballad 'Anyone Like You,' the electronic-leaning 'Wanna Be Rich' and the infectiously poppy favorite 'Is It Just Me.'
Speaking about the disc, singer Austin Winkler revealed that the album is reflecting of "a really, really dark drug binge." He added, "I think you can definitely hear the turmoil in my voice. As soon as we got the record done I went into treatment to get help, and it’s interesting to go back and listen to it now. Coming back, I have a whole new look on all of them and they mean something completely different to me now, too, so it’s pretty cool. That’s the beauty of music.”
