Rock Band Hinder Ready to Display ‘Extreme Behavior’ to Chicago

By Randy J. Klodz

Oklahoma City-based rock band Hinder has seen the steady rise to success in the competitive and often exhausting music business. Hinder has rocked the charts, and is now prepared to thrill fans live in concert. Chicago-area fans can get their glimpse of Hinder at Congress Theatre on Jan. 29.

Hinder—which includes Austin Winkler (vocals), Joe “Blower” Garvey and Mark King (guitars), Mike Rodden (bass) and Cody Hanson (drums)—first drew the attention of fans with the hard-rock song “Get Stoned.”

But the low-key “Lips of an Angel” with Winkler’s stunningly unique singing voice has blown the doors open for Hinder with radio stations of all sorts playing the song one request after another.

Now that Hinder has found the spotlight, the band is ready to rock. With the band’s debut album, “Extreme Behavior,” which it stores in September of 2005, flying off the shelves other songs like “Better Than Me” and “How Long” continue to garner airplay.

With a hit album, the boys in Hinder are ready to hit the road on its own solid headlining tour.

Congress Theatre is at 2135 N. Milwaukee Ave. Tickets for this all-ages show are listed for $22.50 each with showtime slated for 5:30 p.m. This show was originally scheduled to be held at House of Blues on Jan. 20. Tickets purchased for the House of Blues show will also be accepted. Also scheduled to perform include rock bands Finger Eleven and Black Stone Cherry.
