    Crowded House hits cover of Rolling Stone after being crowned Icons

    The Brag Media has revealed the Rolling Stone AU/NZ June-August issue, with Crowded House gracing the cover. The issue hits news stands in Australia and New Zealand from 3 June.

    The cover story looks into the band’s various iterations, and why, all these years later, Neil Finn, Nick Seymour, Mitchell Froom, Liam Finn and Elroy Finn still pursue artistry and authenticity.

    “Everyone in Crowded House shares the history, and that’s the great thing about this lineup. It’s different to what it was, but it’s got as much soul to my mind as any lineup we’ve had. And potentially it might be our greatest lineup, by whatever measure you use. It feels like we’ve got massive trust now,” Neil Finn told Rolling Stone

    The multi-generational story includes insights from Neil Finn’s son, Liam, who joined the band in 2020.

    “Dad is always going to be working on songs, pushing himself to the edge of madness,” he said of Neil. “He’s the hardest working person I know in the world. And for better or for worse, it just won’t stop.”

    The creative collaboration on the cover of the June-August issue of Rolling Stone AU/NZ comes off the back of the band being recognised with the Rolling Stone Icon Award at the recent Rolling Stone AU/NZ Awards.

    “Rolling Stone has long been the kind of purveyor of culture that sits at the epicentre of music’s big moments,” Rolling Stone AU/NZ editor-in-chief, Poppy Reid, said.

    “The excitement and undoubted cultural shift that comes with a new Crowded House album was always going to be something we wanted to be part of.

    “For most of us, Crowded House has existed in the patchwork of our love for music since the very beginning. For some, it was the very first stitch. So to be part of a new Crowded House era, and to be invited into their private universe (pun intended), was a privilege.”

    Rolling Stone Australia reached 225,000 on average for each issue, for the 12 months to March 2024, according to the latest Roy Morgan Australian Magazine Readership Report. 

    The Brag Media’s network of brands now surpasses 40 million monthly page views and reaches 9.1 million unique Australian users per month across its top 50 sites, plus more through the Playwire network.
