Announce ‘Extreme Behavior’ 15th Anniversary Tour Playing Their Debut Platinum Album Live for the First Time Ever
Multi-platinum rockers Hinder will hit the road to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of their debut Extreme Behavior, playing the LP live in its entirety for the first time ever. Extreme Behavior reached #6 on the Billboard 200 and #2 on the Top Rock Albums chart and the second single ‘Lips of an Angel’ became one of the biggest songs of the year reaching the top 10 across several Billboard singles charts, including #1 at Top 40 and Pop 100. Extreme Behavior has since been certified 3x Platinum. Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday, February 28th.
“It’s a strange feeling to think that our first major label album came out 15 years ago! This tour is going to be the first time that we’ve played some these songs since 2005. Going back through the catalogue brings back so many memories of where we were when each song was written. I can’t wait to see how people react to each song at the shows!” Cody Hanson.
Hinder most recently released their cover of the Eagles classic ‘Life in the Fast Lane’ that premiered on Loudwire this past summer. The band is working on new material and will head into the studio later this year.
Release plans for Hinder’s seventh studio album will be announced soon. The set will follow 2017’s The Reign and will be the first they do completely on their own terms. Cody Hanson explains: “We’re excited about releasing the next album, but in a different way than usual. We’ve never had the opportunity before to completely control every aspect of the creative process until now. We’ve worked really hard to get to this point and we can’t wait to share the outcome with our fans!”
Hinder formed in 2001 and have remained at the top of their game supported by a solid and steady fanbase. The proof is in the numbers, selling over 4 million albums and 10 million singles and amassing more than 150 million video views. The band has also seen more than 100 million streams and growing.
As one of the few rock bands to grab massive cross-over success, Hinder’s 2005 debut album, Extreme Behavior is now certified 3x Platinum. In 2008 their sophomore effort, Take It To The Limit, surpassed their debut by peaking at #4 on the Billboard 200 and hitting the Mainstream Rock chart at #3 with single ‘Use Me.’ This solidified Hinder as the biggest new breakout rock act and catapulting them into packed arenas worldwide with the likes of Aerosmith, Mötley Crüe, Nickelback, 3 Doors Down, Papa Roach, and many others. Hinder proved consistent record hit making by following up with a #1 Top Modern Rock/Alternative Album, All American Nightmare (LP 3), and a #3 Top Hard Rock Album, Welcome To The Freakshow (LP 5).
