$uicideboy$ set to bum out Vancouver this summer

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      Making a case the underground is the new mainstream, New Orleans’ $uicideboy$ will prove you don’t need instantly recognizable radio hits or a mountain of glossy press clippings to headline arenas in 2024.

      The rap duo comprised of Ruby da Cherry and $crim will embark on a tour this year that includes an August 23 stop at Rogers Arena, with tickets going on sale Friday (April 5). Expect an orgy of emo-indebted darkness, with the two cousins having built an empire out of serious self-loathing and soul-sucking depression, while, occasionally, celebrating the superpowers of Satan.

      Angst is indeed sometimes good for art.

      $uicideboy$ are billing their North American swing as the Grey Days Tour, with dates scheduled to support the upcoming album New World Depression. Suggesting that Scrim and Ruby da Cherry haven’t exactly found peace despite rising to the top of the rap ranks, tracks from their full-length will include “Mental Clarity Is a Luxury I Can’t Afford”, “Misery in Waking Hours”, “All of My Problems Always Involve Me”, and the admirably succinct “Kill Yourself V”.

      That’s a pretty good indicator that, while the group has made some serious progress since the days of “If Self-Destruction Was an Olympic Event, I’d Be Tonya Harding”, there’s a serious case $uicideboy$ are still as trauma-scarred as ever.

      You know the saying “It gets better”? Well, sometimes it doesn’t.
