Oklahoma rock act Hinder exploded out of nowhere with 2005's "Extreme Behavior," which has gone on to sell more than 2.7 million U.S. copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and spawned the No. 3 Billboard Hot 100 hit "Lips of an Angel."

There was plenty of sex and drugs laced through the debut album, and drummer Cody Hanson promises more of the same on "Take It to the Limit," due this week via Universal Republic.

"We like to have a good time more than anything, so that definitely comes through a lot. Being in a rock band is all about having fun and enjoying life," he says of the inspiration for tracks like "Thing for You" and first single "Use Me," which is "about how guys are OK with a girl using them for whatever they want."

Hinder employed an unusual recording process for "Take It to the Limit," tracking five potential singles first. This enabled management to mix, master and launch a single while the band worked on the second set of songs. "We definitely didn't make a duplicate record," Hanson says. "It's different, but it's definitely still us."
