"All American Nightmare", the third album from Oklahoma hard rockers HINDER, sold 35,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 37 on The Billboard 200 chart.
Co-produced by drummer Cody Hanson and Kevin Churko (AT THIS MOMENT, OZZY OSBOURNE), "All American Nightmare" continues to follow HINDER's living-life-to-the-fullest and sometimes biographical writing style with anthemic gems filled with the band's rich guitar sound such as "Red Tail Lights" to bluesy southern rock with "What Ya Gonna Do" and "Put That Record On", to the harder-edged lead single "All American Nightmare" and "Strip Tease".
The track listing for the CD is as follows:
01. 2 Sides Of Me
02. All American Nightmare
03. What Ya Gonna Do
04. Hey Ho
05. The Life
06. Waking Up The Devil
07. Red Tail Lights
09. Everybody's Wrong
10. Put That Record On
HINDER has released a viral video for the song "Put That Record On". While the track is a tribute to all the artists that the band members grew up listening to, singer Austin Winkler told The Pulse of Radio that someone at the recording studio was not impressed. "It was funny, whenever we were demoing the song, in the chorus it says, 'turn, turn, turn it up loud,' and we're sitting there singing it," he said. "Whoever was next door was like, 'Turn it down!' or went and told somebody to come in here and tell us to knock it off. And I thought it was actually a pretty funny story because we're sitting there singing, screaming if you will, 'turn, turn, turn it up loud,' and we got told to turn it off."
HINDER has sold more than three million albums in the U.S. with its two previous releases, "Extreme Behavior" and "Take It To The Limit", more than six million digital singles, more than six million ringtones, toured the world continuously for the past five years and reinvigorated the rock community with its infectious party lifestyle. The band's epic 2006 debut album, "Extreme Behavior", became a mainstay on The Billboard 200 chart for more than 70 weeks, earned the band numerous honors and accolades as the most successful grassroots-artist development stories of the decade. "Extreme Behavior" launched five successful singles, including the multi-format No. 1 smash "Lips Of An Angel", which earned dozens of chart-topping merit badges and and Active Rock Radio's most popular rock single of 2006 as well as three BMI Awards including "Pop Song of the Year" and "Internet Song of the Year." Their sophomore release, "Take It To The Limit", debuted at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 and included hits "Use Me" and the Top 40 smash and video hit "Without You".
