Hilltop Hoods announce their 2012 Speaking in Tongues Tour.

IN AN announcement just made, the Hilltop Hoods have released their 2012 tour dates.

On June 28, presented by Triple J, Channel V & Golden Era, the Hoods are kicking off their Speaking in Tongues tour - at our very own Plantation Hotel. 

New album Drinking from the Sun has already gone platinum, and the Speaking in Tongues Tour will only up the hype.  

This is the Hoods' first headline tour since 2009, so fans will be hearing tracks from their new album along with favourites from State of the Art, The Hard Road and The Calling.  

Holding down the main support slot on the national tour is Sydney crew Horrorshow.

This duo has two albums, an ARIA nomination, sold-out national tours and festivals under their belt - and they're not even 23 years old. 

Also on the line up is Briggs, a young MC from Shepparton.

Tickets go on sale at midday, April 30 - available at the Planto, Park Beach Music, Coopers Surf Australia, oztix.com.au or offbeatoperations.com.au.
