Fugazi has reunited. Well, technically, Fugazi has reunited several times since they broke up in 2003, but only to play music together in private because the guys are still friends and sometimes that’s what friends do, they hang out together and play music. Does this mean they are planning on a reunion? No. Fugazi is NOT planning on reuniting.
In an interview on Vish Khanna’s podcast Kreative Kontrol, Fugazi bassist bassist Joe Lally says, “Yeah, when we’re all in D.C., we totally hang out together and talk and spend a lot of time laughing. We have a great time together, go out to dinner, and we’ll play some music together.” And then he goes on to talk about the possibility of a Fugazi reunion, “There’s so much to try to look after to allow Fugazi to do anything, that we do not have the time to give it the respect that it deserves. So unfortunately, it is where it is.” TL;DR, don’t hold your breath.
Ian MacKaye has talked about the guys getting together and playing in private for fun because that’s what old friends do, “But really, purely just to play music together because that’s what we love to do,” he said in a 2017 interview on the Culture Creature podcast.
Just think about it though, there are times in the past few years, where Fugazi has been together playing Fugazi songs and you weren’t there.
If a Fugazi reunion happens in D.C. and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
Now stop asking. You’ll just have to be a patient boy and wait, and wait, and wait.
