Formation, Early History, & Far From Close(2001-2004)

Before the band formed, Austin Winkler sang in an Oklahoma City cover band until July 2001,[[Wikipedia:Hinder#cite note-songwriter interview-2|interview 2-0" style="line-height:1;font-size:11.2px;unicode-bidi:-webkit-isolate;color:rgb(37,37,37);font-family:sans-serif;">Wikipedia:Hinder#cite note-songwriter interview-2 when he met drummer Cody Hanson and guitarist Joe Garvey at a college party.[[Wikipedia:Hinder#cite note-yahoo-3|3-0" style="line-height:1;font-size:11.2px;unicode-bidi:-webkit-isolate;color:rgb(37,37,37);font-family:sans-serif;">Wikipedia:Hinder#cite note-yahoo-3 when he met drummer Cody Hanson and guitarist Joe Garvey at a college party.Wikipedia:Hinder#cite note-yahoo-3 Soon after meeting, the three formed Hinder, Hanson commented on Austin Winkler shortly after the band formed saying he was "blown away" and "he has the kind of charisma very few people have and that unique voice. You can't really compare him to anybody." Somewhere in the timeframe from July 2001 and early 2003 the three founding members recruited bass player Cole Parker, together the four recorded a 4 track demo disc, with the track listing "Someday", "Like Me", "Broken", and "Worthless Home". The tracks "Someday" and "Broken" would later be re-recorded and put on their debut EP "Far From Close" and the other two tracks "Like Me" and "Worthless Home" still remain unreleased, only being able to find them on their demo cd's. The band began performing at an Oklahoma City club called The Blue Note, building a local fan base. Profits from the shows went to advertising, as well as paying the expenses for the group's first release. In April 2003, Hinder entered the March Bandness contest for Oklahoma City radio station KHBZ-FM (94.7). They made it to the Final Four out of a field of thirty-two, ultimately losing to the OKC group Falcon Five-O. After saving enough money from local concerts the band's debut EP "Close" was released in 2003 on the independent label Brickden Records and sold around 5,000 copies.[[Wikipedia:Hinder#cite note-Hall of Fame-4|Fame 4-0" style="line-height:1;font-size:11.2px;unicode-bidi:-webkit-isolate;color:rgb(37,37,37);font-family:sans-serif;">Wikipedia:Hinder#cite note-Hall of Fame-4 A year later in late 2004 or early 2005 it is still unknown, bassist Mike Rodden and rhythm guitarist Mark King joined the band.[[Wikipedia:Hinder#cite note-songwriter interview-2|ref-songwriter_interview_2-1" style="line-height:1;font-size:11.2px;unicode-bidi:-webkit-isolate;color:rgb(37,37,37);font-family:sans-serif;">Wikipedia:Hinder#cite note-songwriter interview-2 Cody Hanson, Along with Former lead singer Austin Winkler wrote the majority of the band's music on their first four albums.[[Wikipedia:Hinder#cite note-5|ref-5" style="line-height:1;font-size:11.2px;unicode-bidi:-webkit-isolate;color:rgb(37,37,37);font-family:sans-serif;">Wikipedia:Hinder#cite note-5

Winkler said that the group started recording during the touring cycle for Take It To The Limit. “We wrote 70 or so songs, recorded about 50 and cut it down to 12," the singer explained. "It’s something that we’ve never done before, so it’s like our ultimate baby. A lot of the [other] songs could be shit, too, we don’t know. You don’t really know until you put it out there and have more than two people’s opinion on it.” Both he and drummer Cody Hanson mentioned the song "Memory" as one that was a strong contender for the final cut. "It’s about being with your chick — the chick you’ve been with for a while, not some chick you’ve met on the road — and about being able to still have a good time with your wife or long-time girlfriend," said Hanson. "I’ve been in a relationship myself for nine years, so it was cool to write a song like that."[13]
