In a new interview on Vish Khanna’s Kreative Kontrol podcast, Fugazi bassist Joe Lally has revealed that the band still occasionally gets together to play. Lally begins, “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.” He then shoots down any hopes of a potential 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.” Fugazi went on indefinite hiatus in 2002. Listen to the episode around the 35:00 mark.

During the episode, Lally was joined by Fugazi drummer Brendan Canty and guitarist Anthony Pirog. The trio have formed a new band called the Messthetics, whose self-titled debut album comes out later tonight. Last year, Fugazi endorsed a new opera inspired by the band, created by the New York-based ensemble Object Collection. Read “Fugazi Returns… Through Opera?” on the Pitch.
