After a decade spent relentlessly touring and recording, Toronto punk outfit Fucked Up is going on a hiatus following a few more gigs this year. That was the word from frontman Damian Abraham, who also told Spinner that he’s considering hanging it up completely. As he says in the interview, he just doesn’t know how much longer he can continuing tour with the band.
Abraham isn’t ready to confirm his departure just yet, but he did say that Fucked Up is scheduled to go on a “long break” soon. And whether or not the band comes back with him screaming into the mic with his shirt off remains to be seen. You can read a snippet from the interview below and peep the rest at Spinner.
“I don’t want to say I’ve been teasing it, in a way,” Abraham tells Spinner. “But I’ve been talking about it a lot because I don’t want to take away these five other people’s livelihoods.”
“I can’t tour anymore,” Abraham says. “I don’t want to take that away from them, so I would love to find a way to basically make it into a constantly evolving thing where sometimes F—ed Up can go on tour and other times, it’s another band involved with us.”
