LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 8, 2007 -- Multi-platinum selling rock heroes HINDER are set to headline the inaugural MADPACKERS.COM "DOOR TO DORM" music tour, kicking off Spring Break in South Padre, Texas on March 16. The tour will hit 17 colleges and three major music festivals, reaching more than 800,000 fans when it resumes its full five-week schedule running April 13 through May 16. Grammy-nominated alt/metal group PAPA ROACH and multi-platinum selling post grunge band PUDDLE OF MUDD will join the tour as supporting acts on select dates.

Hinder, the fired-up Oklahoma quintet collectively dedicated to promoting good ol' fashion rock, landed multi-platinum success with their full-length debut CD "EXTREME BEHAVIOR" -- featuring the mega-hit single "Lips of an Angel" and current charting single "Better Than Me."

Comments MadPackers' President, Brian Altomare: "We are extremely honored and excited to have Hinder represent the MadPackers lifestyle brand through our inaugural 'Door To Dorm' music tour. They truly represent how rock music should be played, just as MadPackers represents how college shipping should be executed."

MadPackers.com's "Door to Dorm" shipping service is geared to alleviate the stress, hassle and headaches often associated with making that big move to college, by picking up a student's packed belongings and dropping them off inside their dorm room ahead of time. The company uses licensed, bonded carriers who provide all of the packing materials, and who will even pack for you, for an additional charge.

On college campuses, the MadPackers.com "Door To Dorm" music tour will be an all-day campus event and interactive experience, giving students the opportunity to interact, socialize, relax and rock out to great music on campus. "These students work hard and this is our chance to give them a reason to take a break and enjoy themselves," Altomare says. The concert tickets are also reasonably priced in order to meet a college student's budget.
