After the success of their 2006 single "Lips Of An Angel
" from their 2005 debut album Extreme Behavior
, Hinder went into the studio to record their sophomore effort. Unfortunately, the band did not receive the same level of promotional support for 2008's Take It to the Limit
, and, as a result, did not enjoy the same level of critical and commercial success. Drummer Cody Hanson described the experience as being similar to "having the rug pulled out from under them" and says the band "didn't expect that."
