For the first time in the band’s history, multi-platinum rock act Hinder are releasing acoustic recordings to be accompanied by an acoustic tour. The 6-song acoustic EP entitled Stripped is set for release May 13 via The End Records, and features five acoustic renditions of original Hinder songs plus an acoustic cover of “Not An Addict,” originally recorded by K’s Choice.
Say Hinder, “We’re thrilled to finally be able to release this acoustic EP. When we write songs, we believe that they have to be great with just an acoustic guitar. The rest of the instrumentation is just icing on the cake. We can’t wait get out on the road and show our fans our music in its original form.”

Multi-platinum rockers Hinder, whom have sold over 3.8 million albums and more than 7.5 million singles, garnered north of 130 million video views, and racked in 50 million spins on Spotify, and counting, are back with their first-ever acoustic EP Stripped, set for release May 13, 2016.
Stripped follows their fifth full-length album When The Smoke Clears. When The Smoke Clears entered the Billboard 200 claiming four Top 10 chart positions upon its May 12, 2015 debut. With over a decade-long career under their belts, and having honed their chops touring with the likes of Mötley Crüe, Nickelback, Aerosmith and Papa Roach, When The Smoke Clears breathed new sound, and new air, into the ever-evolving band. The songs on When the Smoke Clears run the gamut from rowdy rock to subtle country influence, to memorable pop hooks, all of which retain the DNA-distinct spirit of Hinder. That ability to walk the tightrope between genres, without a net, is something the band has had fun with in creating the new album.
As one of the few bands to have massive cross-over success in recent years, Hinder’s debut album Extreme Behavior climbed to #1 on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers chart and made its way to #6 on The Billboard 200 chart. The album featured one of the biggest songs of the year, ‘Lips of an Angel’ – a Top 5 hit across EIGHT Billboard singles charts (including #1 on Top 40). Their sophomore effort, Take It To The Limit surpassed their debut, peaking at #4 on The Billboard 200, solidifying Hinder as the biggest new breakout rock act and catapulting them into packed arenas worldwide with their explosive live show. Proving they consistently make hit records, the band followed the first two albums up with a #1 Top Modern Rock/Alternative Album (All American Nightmare), and a #3 Top Hard Rock Album (Welcome To The Freakshow).
With increasing social media stats (1.6 million Facebook followers), it’s clear that Hinder fans are along for the ride and as hungry as ever for more.
