Hinder Spent Two Years Writing New Album — ‘Creep Show
A decade into their career, Oklahoma hard rock deviants Hinder are still tearing it up. The band’s third album, ‘All American Nightmare’ just entered the Billboard 200 album chart at 37, and Hinder are currently on tour with Saving Abel and Default. Instead of incorporating a couple new songs into their live set like many bands, Hinder are playing six of the ‘All American Nightmare’ numbers in concert. It’s not just that they want to make a hard sell for the album — they truly believe in the songs.
While past excursions have involved intensive writing sessions that yielded enough material for good albums, Hinder spent almost two years writing 75 new songs to ensure ‘All American Nightmare’ was as strong as it could possibly be. “We wanted to create something that people felt they had to have,” drummer Cody Hanson told Noisecreep during their ”Creep Show’ session.

In addition to discussing the creation of the album, Hanson and vocalist Austin Winkler talked about their disgust with mindless reality shows and vapid pop music, touring with their heroes in Mötley Crüe and Aersomith, some of their bizarre backstage antics and their efforts to keep rock ‘n’ roll raging.
