Bruce’s high-profile ‘Wrecking Ball’ is the sidekick to Hilltop Hood’s ‘Drinking From The Sun’.

‘Wrecking Ball’ took over most of the planet this week with a convincing debut at the top in both the USA and UK. Bruce also took over SXSW in Austin with an appearance at the Austin Music Awards on Wednesday, his keynote address at the Austin Convention Center on Thursday and then performance with The E Street Band at the Austin City Limits theater on Thursday night.

Hilltop Hoods ‘Drinking From The Sun’ is the first Australian to top the album chart this year. It is their third album in a row to debut at no. 1 after ‘The Hard Road’ (2006) and ‘State Of The Art’ (2009).
