Dangerous Hippies Release Americana Version Of 'Like A Ghost'
Hinder drummer Cody Hanson and frontman Marshal Dutton recently announced a new project called Dangerous Hippies. Last month they unveiled their new video 'Like A Ghost' that premiered over at American Songwriter. Dutton on the song: "Like a Ghost is a story about being out-shined and loving it!" Hanson talks about the re-worked Americana version: "The great thing about this project is that there are no rules. If we wake up and hear different version of a song in our heads, we'll work it up and release it." "You know you have a good song when you can produce it in any style and you love it just as much as you did before."
As one of the few rock bands to grab massive cross-over success, Hinder's 2005 debut album, Extreme Behavior, climbed to #6 on the Billboard 200 chart and was the 2nd Top Rock Album. 'Get Stoned' would be the album's first radio single, climbing to a #4 mainstream rock spot. What followed would end up being one of the biggest songs of the year, 'Lips of an Angel', which peaked within the top 10 across several Billboard singles charts, including #1 at Top 40 and Pop 100. Extreme Behavior has since been certified 3x Platinum. In 2008 their sophomore effort, Take It To The Limit, surpassed their debut by peaking at #4 on the Billboard 200 and hitting the Mainstream Rock chart at #3 with single 'Use Me.' This solidified Hinder as the biggest new breakout rock act and catapulting them into packed arenas worldwide with the likes of Aerosmith, Mötley Crüe, Nickelback, 3 Doors Down, Papa Roach, and many others. Hinder proved consistent record hit making by following up with a #1 Top Modern Rock/Alternative Album, All AMERICAN NIGHTMARE (LP 3), and a #3 Top Hard Rock Album, Welcome To The Freakshow (LP 5).
