Don’t Dream it’s Over

A new album and world tour by Crowded House, has made headlines across the globe. According to chief songwriter Neil Finn, he and bass player Nick Seymour have been considering regrouping since the tragic death of drummer Paul Hester in 2004. “It just feels like something good and true,” says Finn, “We sought each other out in the shadow of Paul’s passing. That helped us reconnect and gave me a reminder of what bands are and what they bring.” The new album is titled Time on Earth and will be launched – along with the world tour – at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival in California this April. Finn and Seymour will be joined by keyboardist Mark Hart and are currently auditioning for a new drummer in Melbourne. “It feels right to us that the band should re-emerge at this time and together with Mark Hart we look forward to reconnecting with the audience that we established and for whom we still hold a deep respect,” says Finn.
