Fucked Up to take long break

Damian Abraham of Fucked Up has announced via Spinner that the band are to take a long break because he “can’t tour anymore” and further goes on to state that things are messing with his head and he is the one “losing it the most”.

“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.”

“I have no idea how it’s all going to work out,” Abraham says. “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.”

F—ed Up just wrapped up a joint tour with California punk-rockers Wavves. Though Abraham initially calls the jaunt “the most fun I’ve ever had on tour,” he later reveals it wasn’t exactly a rock ‘n’ roll dream. “It wasn’t the most fun I’ve ever had on tour,” he clarifies. “I was kind of melting down, mentally, on that tour but every time I was hanging out with those guys, it was fantastic.

“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.”
