Hinder, Nonpoint, Nine Shrines and Chrysalis ready to rock the Ohio Theatre in Lima, Ohio on Wednesday!!

The Ohio Theatre in Lima, Ohio is the place to be this Wednesday night when Bame Artist Group presents Hinder and Nonpoint continue their co-headlining tour along with special guests, Nine Shrines and Chrysalis. The four bands invade the historical venue with the doors opening at 7:00 p.m.

Hinder was formed in 2001 in Oklahoma City when Austin Winkler (vocalist), Joe Garvey (lead guitarist) and Cody Hanson (drummer) got together along with bassist, Cole Parker. The foursome played together until Parker’s departure in 2003.

Mike Rodden replaced Parker while Mark King was added to take care of the rhythm guitar at the same time. That core group rose to fame together and produced four albums beginning with ‘Extreme Behavior’ which was released via Universal Records in 2005. That compilation included the hit singles “Get Stoned”, “Lips of an Angel” and “How Long”. All three tunes spent time among the top charts in the United States with “Lips of an Angel” making it all the way up to #1 on US Mainstream Top 40. The album climbed all the way to #6 on the Top 200 and has reached triple-platinum status since its release.

‘Take It to the Limit’ was the second collaboration and it followed suit with their debut work as “Use Me” rose all the way to #3. That effort enabled the album to open at #4 on Billboard’s Top 200 after selling 81,000 copies in the first week. ‘Take It to the Limit’ peaked at number 4 and was certified as a gold record in 2013.

In 2010 the band unleashed ‘All American Nightmare’ on the public and two years later ‘Welcome to the Freakshow’ was introduced to their fans.

As it turned out that would be the final piece of work that Winkler would be a part of as he had a battle with addiction and went into rehab in July of 2013. The band’s Bare Bones tour was completed with the help of friends Marshal Dutton and Saving Abel front man, Jared Weeks. In November of that year it was announced that Winkler had left the band.

Winkler’s departure sent Hinder into hiatus for over a year until they let it be known that they were back and had been working on their fifth album entitled ‘When the Smoke Clears’. At the same time it was also announced that Dutton had stepped into the lead role on a permanent basis.

“Remember Me” is the title track from their upcoming album and was made available for purchase on April 28th.

Nonpoint got its start in 1997 when current lead singer, Elias Soriano and drummer Robb Rivera, got together with Ken McMillan (bass) and later Andrew Goldman (guitar) in Jacksonville, Florida. They signed their first record deal two years later and released ‘Struggle’, their first album, in May of 1999.

The band moved from to MCA Records the following year, sending ‘Statement’ out to their fans in October.

‘Statement’ eventually climbed No. 166 among the top 200 chart thanks “What a Day” which settled in the Mainstream charts at No. 24.

In June of 2002 ’Development’ would be released and it continued the momentum for the band as it rose to No. 52. “Your Signs” was the highest charting single off of the compilation, climbing to 36.

‘Recoil’ was unleashed on the public in 2004 opening at 115th on the top 200 charts. That would be the final time that Nonpoint would work with MCA. They signed on with Bieler Brothers Records for ‘To the Pain’ two years later. It sold 9,000 copies in the first week, pushing it to #147 behind the monster hit, “Bullet with a Name”, which made it to # 22 on the Mainstream charts. “Alive and Kicking”, followed the success of Bullet rendering a #25 spot on the charts

“In the Air Tonight” a remake of the Phil Collins hit, was used as an integral piece of the movie, Miami Vice which starred Jamie Foxx and was based on the hit television show.

‘Vengeance’, the final compilation under the Bieler Bros. logo, sold 8,400 copies in its first week which helped it go all the way to 129. The EP ‘Cut the Chord’  was let loose while the band was looking for another label and featured acoustic renditions of “What a Day”, “Circles”, “Rabia”, “Victim” and “Your Signs”.

‘Miracle’ hit the scene in 2010 and turned out to be Nonpoint’s highest debut album ever, hitting the ground running to No. 6 on the Hard Rock Albums charts.

Nonpoint’, a self-titled album was released on the Razor & Tie label in October of 2012 and included the hit “I Said It”. ‘The Return’ followed in 2014 with the single “Breaking Skin” helping to push the album to #39 on the Top 200 list.

In 2016 the band joined forces with Spinefarm Records to release ‘The Poison Red’. It has been received well by the fans evident by its 73rd spot among the top 200. It also settled in at #2 on the independent charts.

 Soriano and Rivera are currently teamed with the outstanding talents of Rasheed Thomas (rhythm guitar and backup vocals) and Adam Woloszyn (bass guitar) and B.C. Kochmit (lead guitar).

Nine Shrines will be back home in the Buckeye state and opening the show. The Mascot Records signee has four members (Andrew Baylis, Devon Voisine, Evan McKeever and Chris Parketny) who are based out of Cleveland while founder Andrew Wetzel calls Columbus home.

Wetzel is the former drummer for the band Attack Attack! who had success with their self-titled album that rose to #26 on Billboard’s top 200 charts in 2010. Other members of that group included Caleb Shomo (Beartooth) and Austin Carlile (Of Mice & Men).

Once they disbanded in 2013, Wetzel and Baylis got together to discuss the possibilities of getting something off the ground. Voisine was on board after a couple of weeks with McKeever to follow. All that was needed was someone to man the lead vocal slot. Parketny won the spot after auditioning and Nine Shrines was born.

I saw the band perform at 99.7 The Blitz’s Great Summer Smokeout at EXPRESS LIVE in Columbus last year and the quintet proved to be a force with their performance.

Chris Parketny looked extremely comfortable as the man in the middle, carousing around the stage almost in a trance. The rest of the band did a tremendous job as well.

Nine Shrines announced at that time that they had to hold off plans for releasing an EP that they were working on which gave speculation that the band might soon be signing their first record deal. That came to fruition in March of this year when they inked with Mascot Label Group.

‘Misery’ the EP that they spoke of was finally out on April 21st and the band has been on the road in support of that since early April.

Opening the show will be Chrysalis an indie-metal/rock band out of Barstow, California that has been together for over a decade.

They currently have an album out entitled ‘Reminder’ that features the single “My Eternity” that has climbed into the top 30 on the Active Rock radio charts. Grammy nominated producer, Ulrich Wild, who has worked with Deftones, Pantera and Incubus, produced the album.

Chrysalis is no stranger to the road having played over on over 175 dates from 2014 through 2016. Band members include Yessi Burton on vocals, Gabe Julian and Gabe Gallego taking care of the guitar work with Jared Sturgis (bass) and Billy Norris (drums) combining to handle the rhythm section.

The Ohio Theatre is located at 122 W. North Street in Lima, Ohio. Tickets for the 18 and over show are $25 and are available at www.bameartistgroup.com
