“We are really excited by Blood Moon hitting # 1 on the ARIA chart – an incredible 21 years after our last one,” says Jimmy Barnes. “We never take anything for granted, so huge thanks to our loyal army of fans who have helped make this happen. We love Blood Moon– it’s our best collection of songs since the ‘80s.”
