After nearly a decade, Hinder are stronger than ever. Drummer Cody Hanson suggests: “There aren’t too many bands that can stick together in the same lineup for an entire career. We all get along so well because we’re just five dudes from Oklahoma who like having a good time, laughing, and making music.” The multi-platinum Oklahoma City hard rockers got just freaky enough for their latest offering. Of course they’ve still got some big panty-dropping rock anthems such as “Ladies Come First,” but new tracks like the acoustic “Get Me Away From You” boast gritty charm with just the right amount of pop prowess. “We stayed true to our sound, but every track is unique,” vocalist Austin Winkler states. “We intentionally wrote about different subjects for each song. That’s something we hadn’t really done on a Hinder record. That drove the new direction. We wanted to make the lyrics and the songs as real as possible. We were more honest than ever before.” Welcome to the Freakshow is Hinder at their most diverse and dynamic.

Candlebox, named for a line in a song by Midnight Oil, had sold more than 4 million copies of their self-titled debut which, after many months of gaining momentum, peaked at number 7 on Billboard’s album charts. Their follow up album, Lucy, was certified as platinum. Candlebox was the first successful act on Madonna’s Maverick Records. The band was known for an explosive live show and throughout their career they toured with such bands as The Flaming Lips and Metallica. They are best known for the singles “Change”, “You”, “Far Behind” and “Simple Lessons”. “Far Behind” entered Billboard’s Top 20 and didn’t drop off the charts until six months later. The videos for “Far Behind” and “You” were in seemingly perpetual rotation on MTV and became two of the most requested videos.
