Hinder have announced that frontman Austin Winkler is pulling out of the band's current North American tour for personal reasons and they have recruited Saving Abel's Jared Weeks and Drankmore's Marshal Dutton to fill in for him.
The band had this to say, "We want to let you know Austin has decided to temporarily leave the tour for personal reasons. Our thoughts and prayers are with him in this time and we know that he will be just fine.
"However, the band has decided, instead of canceling shows and leaving our die-hard fans hanging, we're going to keep the good times rolling on the road this summer. We have some guests filling in to help us out and promise you won't be disappointed! For those of you that have your tickets already, get ready for a great time! For those of you that don't, you won't want to miss out!
"Thanks again to our amazing fans for all your support. We can't wait to see you this summer…get ready for the party! - Cody, Blower, Mark & Mike"
