About to arrive in Australia to support the Foo Fighters on their national tour, this could be your last time to see Canadian band Fucked Up in their current form with front man Damian Abraham telling a reporter he’d like to stop touring.
Speaking to Spinner in the US, Abraham said “I can’t tour anymore. 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 Fucked Up can go on tour and other times, it’s another band involved with us.”
He continued “I have no idea how it’s all going to work out. I know we’re going to take this long break and hopefully we can think about it and figure it out a little more.It’s weird because it’s not like you’re working a job where you don’t like it anymore and you want to move on for whatever reason — it’s not just you, it’s five other people who are also working at the same job.”
“I can be weirdly lonely even though you’re surrounded by these five other people,” Abraham adds. “But we’ve been together now 10 years and there’s not a lot left to talk about. It messes with your head after a while, and I think that’s why we need this break. Me especially though, I’m the one losing it the most by far.”
Fucked Up plan to wrap up their remaining scheduled dates including the Foo Fighters tour and a string of dates in the US before their self-imposed hiatus will take effect. You can read more about the latest announcements for the Foo Fighters tour here.
