While Australian Hip Hop continues to break new ground, there is only one act synonymous with the term ground-breaking. Within a genre that is growing at an exponential rate, Adelaide’s Hilltop Hoods will always remain leaders.
The group has continued to move forward at light speed without ever looking back, and their latest album ‘Drinking From the Sun’ is no exception. The first single ‘I Love It’ featuring the mesmerizing vocal talents of Sia was their biggest single ever (their first to go triple platinum). The band launched ‘I Love It’ in Australia by supporting Eminem at three massive stadium concerts.
Upon it’s release (March 2012) ‘Drinking From the Sun’ became the groups third consecutive #1 album and held its position for 2 weeks, taking the top spot from Adele. ‘Drinking From the Sun’ went gold on the day of its release and was certified platinum within one week.
In support of ‘Drinking From the Sun’ the Hoods set out on their biggest national tour ever, ‘The Speaking In Tongues Tour’. They also completed a maiden US tour in support of their recent signing with Fontana (USA). On top of this the Hoods’ released their album in markets all over the world via Universal Music, and subsequently completed sold out dates in Canada, UK, Germany and Switzerland (including festival appearances at T In The Park, Open Air Frauenfeld and Wireless.)
With all these exceptional accolades, Hilltop Hoods have stayed true to their music and retained their integrity in an industry that has a tendency to value the transient.
