Hinder Members Launch New Project Dangerous Hippies

Hinder drummer Cody Hanson and frontman Marshal Dutton have launched a new project called Dangerous Hippies. You can find an official video for their debut single “Whoa” below:

According to the duo, the project kind of started in 2011 when they were approached about writing a song for a commercial that was similar to The Black Keys. Hansen said the following:

“We were very inspired and were having a blast, so we decided to write more in the same style. It seemed to come naturally and since it had a more raw feel, we could spend more time on writing and less time polishing in the studio.”

“Dangerous Hippies was never intended to be a replacement for Hinder. Hinder will continue to tour. However, Marshal and I feel that we have grown as songwriters and producers. We don’t want to be stuck in the box of the ‘active rock’ genre forever. We feel that it’s time to get some of the music that we’ve been working on for so many years out to the world.”

“We don’t want this to be just another side project that releases a song/album and then disappears. We plan on taking the time to build this the right way and to build the fan base that will appreciate this new style of music.”
