Hinder has replaced its lead singer for the second time in less than two years. After recruiting Nolan Neal to replace original frontman Austin Winkler following the latter’s departure in late 2013, the band has announced that Neal himself has been shown the door. In a new post on Facebook, the group has revealed that their new vocalist will be Marshal Dutton, who also happens to be the co-producer on several of their records.


The band’s statement said, “As our loyal and beloved fans know, we have been searching to find the perfect fit for two years now and recently came to realize that it was right under our nose the entire time. Marshal has been a part of the Hinder family since 2009, when he began co-writing/producing on the All American Nightmare album. He has been a co-producer on every Hinder release since, and truly loves this band as we do. We have been the best of friends for many years and we couldn’t be more excited for the future!”

  • Dutton previously sang for Hinder on some tour dates during Winkler’s hiatus from the band in 2012.
  • After Winkler left for good in November 2013, the band recruited Neal to take his place. A single, “Hit The Ground,” was released last fall with Neal on vocals.
  • Hinder will release its new full-length album, When The Smoke Clears, on March 3rd.
