Right before the news broke about Hinder parting ways with Austin Winkler, their drummer Cody Hanson shot me their latest recording. A Christmas song that also features Jared Weeks, from Saving Abel.

Earlier this summer when Hinder was on tour, Jared filled in for Austin while he was out attending personal matters. Well, it looks like the guys enjoyed their time with Jared so much that they decided to record a Christmas song, "We Wish You a Merry Christmas". I gotta admit, this is one heck of a rockin' Christmas tune.

While it's not their first foray into Christmas music (they have also performed Little Drummer Boy in the past), it is definitely the hippest one they've done. It's obvious Hinder and Weeks have developed an awesome chemistry, just based on this song.

I must warn you, this is one of those songs that will stick in your head all day. Not that it's a bad thing though.
