Hilltop Hoods release new box set, celebrate latest Platinum status
Today, as Hilltop Hoods’ Drinking From The Sun, Walking Under Stars Restrung album officially goes platinum, the group have released a vinyl deluxe edition of the ARIA award winning album. Limited to 1,000 copies the Drinking From The Sun, Walking Under Stars Restrung Deluxe Boxset is available to purchase from today.
The album became the hip-hop groups’ fifth #1 album on the ARIA Chart, and features platinum-selling ‘Higher’ ft. James Chatburn and four-times platinum single ‘1955’ ft. Montaigne and Tom Thum. The release was celebrated with The Restrung Tour in 2016 where Hilltop Hoods headlined arenas with Australia’s best orchestras and choirs conducted by Hamish McKeich.
Off the back of the album, the group initiated the “Through The Dark” project with Google Play, resulting in an astonishing six awards at the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity including the FWA People’s Choice Award.
The must-have boxset includes #1 ARIA charting albums Drinking From The Sun, Walking Under Stars and Drinking From The Sun, Walking Under Stars Restrung. All three albums have been pressed as 2-LP and 3-LP sets (7 records in total) on exclusive 180 gram coloured vinyl for maximum sound quality, then packaged with a hard cover book and housed in a slip-on case with lenticular cover. The 36-page book features artwork from the past three albums and exclusive images taken from the Hilltop Hoods’ 2016 sold-out Restrung Arena Tour. The boxset will also include an individually numbered and signed print plus a download card for all three albums.
To celebrate the deluxe boxset, brand new exclusive merchandise has also been crafted for today’s release. The limited edition bundles are exclusive to Hilltop Hoods store and available here.
The group have just finished their highly successful North American Tour and heading back into the studio, with new music to be released next year.
