After the success of The Hard Road, the Hilltop Hoods were invited to play with a string quartet at an awards show. They accepted this unusual challenge and were so impressed with how well it worked, they added a string quartet for their next tour. This lead to the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra offering to work with them, and they hit on the idea of creating an orchestral remix album, taking The Hard Road and reworking it to fit a 31-piece classical orchestra. The result could have gone either way, but in the end the mix works better than you might expect.

Lyrics to "The Hard Road Restrung" song by Hilltop Hoods: Going down the hard road, don't know where i've been. Growing up I needed a guide like, a blind veteran's dog, Cos I was going nowhere like a child's letters to god, Though life's road was hard I was never so lost, That I looked for an answer in a medicine box, I never did pop pills, or cop deals, just rocked hills Kids with skills, still.

On 12 May 2007, the Hoods released their new album The Hard Road: Restrung which is a remix of their previous album The Hard Road featuring the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra and Okwerdz. Like its predecessor The Hard Road, it took out "Best Urban Release" at the ARIA Awards, with the Hoods going back-to-back. The first single released from The Hard Road: Restrung is "Recapturing The Vibe Restrung". The video clip was on high rotation on rage & jtv for several months.
