Hinder Sue Former Singer Austin Winkler

According to The Oklahoman, Hinder are suing former vocalist Austin Winkler, due to the singer using the band’s trademark to promote his solo career. The lawsuit says he violated an agreement between him and the band, which stated he could only go by “Austin Winkler, formerly of Hinder” if the name in promotional materials, is not bigger or more prominent than his actual name. The band are seeking “all gains, profits and advantages realized from [Winkler’s] infringing.”

Hinder’s attorney Blake Johnson commented:

“Hinder has no ill will toward Mr. Winkler and would have much preferred to privately resolve this matter. Mr. Winkler, however, was apparently uninterested in such a solution. Though they’ve now been forced to seek legal redress, the band is less interested in a monetary reward and more interested in protecting Hinder’s valuable intellectual property and its brand and reputation.

“The members of Hinder simply cannot abide another musician making reckless use of the name and trademark they’ve worked for over a decade to make meaningful and distinct.”

Winkler left Hinder in 2013 due to medical and emotional problems, and the lawsuit said the band’s Leaving Member Agreement gives him “no rights in the (trademark), or to promotional use of the name Hinder” and that he agreed to a “very limited license for use of the mark under certain express restrictions.” It goes on to say Winkler is infringing on the trademark “by falsely suggesting Winkler’s continued affiliation with or endorsement by Hinder in ways likely to cause consumer confusion.”

Hinder To Release New Album “The Reign” In August

Hinder have announced that their new album “The Reign” will be released on August 11. They said the following about that:

“The constant emotional expenditure that an artist must do in order to always be creating and the ups and downs of a career in music tends to lead to substance abuse and suicides. Unfortunately, the world has lost way too many music legends this way. Overall, this album is definitely darker and heavier than most of the past Hinder albums. However, for our old-school fans, it also has a few songs that have that signature ‘Hinder’ sound.”

“The Reign” Track Listing:

01. “The Reign”
02. “Burn It Down”
03. “King Of The Letdown”
04. “Remember Me”
05. “Too Late”
06. “Another Way Out”
07. “Making It Hard”
08. “Drink You Away”
09. “Play To Win”
10. “Long Gone”
11. “Loser’s Salute”

Hinder Premiere New Song “Remember Me”

Hinder have premiered a new song titled “Remember Me,” via Loudwire. Check it out below:

Marshal Dutton commented:

“We are extremely excited for the world to hear our new single. The song lyrics use a metaphor of being lost at sea to express the feeling that you might not survive after being overwhelmed by choices that you’ve made, and though you fight to redeem yourself, you ultimately can’t resist questioning how you might be remembered in the end; a message we feel is easily relatable to many people. We can’t wait to introduce it to our fans on our upcoming spring tour with Nonpoint.”
