PRESS RELEASE:

GOLDEN ERA, ROBIN FERNANDO AND FLAVA ANNOUNCE HILLTOP HOODS RETURN TO NEW ZEALAND

Australian’s hip-hop heavyweights are back!

Golden Era, Robin Fernando and Flava are hugely excited to announce the return of the Adelaide trio Hilltop Hoods to New Zealand shores. The New Zealand tour will see the vibrant act play shows in Auckland, Wellington and Queenstown this June.

Numerous sold-out national tours and standout festival appearances has seen Hilltop Hoods singled out as one of Australia’s most vibrant live acts by press, industry insiders and fans alike. Their success has not been limited to Australia though; the Hoods’ have proven they can take their sound to the far corners of the globe. They’ve toured everywhere from Switzerland to South Korea, appearing at such festivals as Glastonbury, Splendour In The Grass, Oxygen, Open Air Lumnezia and Splash.

Drawing upon a broad range of influences, Hilltop Hoods have never lost touch with the unique flavour they created in the Adelaide Hills as young Hip Hop fans. With an ethos that is both innovative and fearless, Hilltop Hoods inspirational sound has been embraced far beyond Hip Hop’s loyal underground.

Drinking From The Sun, Hilltop Hoods 6th studio album, featured as Triple J's Album Of The Week and the hit single ‘I Love It' took over the airwaves across New Zealand and Australia as they supported Eminem and performed on the 2012 BDO tour. As Hilltop Hoods' third consecutive number one album, the album was certified Gold on first day of release quickly selling to Platinum the following week (Now Double Platinum Certified). The album features guest appearances from Black Thought (The Roots), Chali 2na (Jurassic 5), Sia, Classified (Canada), Lotek (UK) & Solo (Horrorshow).

With all these exceptional accolades, Hilltop Hoods have not only risen to the top of Australian Hip Hop, but have cemented themselves a place at the very forefront of the Australian Music Industry.

Hilltop Hoods have stayed true to their music and retained their integrity in an industry that has a tendency to value the transient.

These shows will sell out – get in quick!!
