Fucked Up

Damian Abraham, who fronts Canadian hardcore outfit Fucked Up, has confessed he’s considered quitting the band to spend more time with his wife and son.

Confirming that the band would go on hiatus after they’ve finished touring their latest album, Abraham told Spinner he hated being away from his family and would like to stop touring, but added that “I don’t want to take away these five other people’s livelihoods”. He wishes there could be some sort of set up where Fucked Up would sometimes tour with him, but other times the rest of the band could go off in another incarnation of the band and work without him. He continued: “I would love to find a way to basically make it [the band] into a constantly evolving thing where sometimes Fucked Up can go on tour and other times, it’s another band [involving] us”.

On the upcoming hiatus, he added: “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”.
