Oklahoma City rockers HINDER will release their new full-length album, "When The Smoke Clears", on March 3 via The End Records/ADA.
Since releasing "Hit The Ground", the first single off their fifth studio album, the hard-rocking quintet has received an outpouring of support from their fans as well as Active Rock radio, garnering eighteen station adds to date.
"This is the album HINDER fans have been waiting for and they won't be disappointed," says drummer Cody Hanson. "We spent a year writing this and we couldn’t be more excited for the world to hear it."
"When The Smoke Clears" is now available for pre-order via The Omega Order in multiple configurations, including an exclusive vinyl bundle offering the following:

Joe "Blower" Garvey, Mark King, Mike Rodden and Cody Hanson entered the studio with their new singer as of 2013, Nolan Neal, in the spring to record a brand new effort that was co-produced by Hanson and Marshal Dutton.
There were no boundaries, and every idea was fair game throughout the process. Hanson says, "We like to think we can do anything. We don't want to be stuck in a rut with one type of sound or formula. One song might have a country influence, while another might have a pop influence. Then there are some heavy metal moments.
"We have every element covered on this record. You've got to do what's best for the song."
After nearly a decade, HINDER are stronger than ever. Hanson concludes: "This band was built around a strong core of hard work and friendship. Like it or not, we're going to be around for a long time."
Combining raw riffs with big hooks and vocal harmonies, HINDER takes its cues from rock legends such as AEROSMITH, AC/DC, KISS and GUNS N' ROSES, and update them with modern guitar sounds.
HINDER parted ways with singer Austin Winkler in November 2013. Winkler left the lineup during a tour earlier last year for what was said to be "personal reasons," although it was later confirmed that the hard-partying vocalist had entered rehab for the second time in his career. Jared Weeks from SAVING ABEL filled in for Winkler on what was then a temporary basis.
HINDER spent much of 2013 on the road in support of its fourth album, "Welcome To The Freakshow", which came out in 2012.
