$UICIDEBOY$ announce second date
FRIDAY MARCH 24, 2017 - They’re the underground hip-hop act that you don’t know, unless you’re in the know. $UICIDEBOY$ fans went crazy at the announcement of the duo’s first downunder tour two weeks ago, and their New Zealand show sold out in record time. Now, $UICIDEBOY$ confirm a second Auckland date at The Studio in Auckland on May 9.
Tickets go on sale at 10am on Wednesday March 29.

Setting the hip-hop world alight, cousins Ruby da Cherry and $lick $loth, aka $UICIDEBOY$, produce a dark blend of horrorcore glitch-trap beats, brooding hallucinogenic rhymes and haunting atmospheric soundscapes, making tidal waves around the world with their unique blend of synth-laden trap beats and misanthropic, dark verses.
Growing up together Ruby and $lick shared very different tastes in music; Ruby taking lessons from Minor Threat, Leftover Crack and The Misfits, while $lick (aka Suicide Christ) pursued the art of turntablism, while honing his skills as a songwriter. Worlds collided as the New Orleans rap duo joined their creative forces in 2014 to form the juggernaut that is $UICIDEBOY$.
$UICIDEBOY$ then set about claiming the crown of ‘hardest working two-piece in the game’. When they aren’t writing, recording and touring, they are taking care of their own beat production, sound engineering, video production, art and merchandise design. Hard work and talent saw them swiftly noticed by G59 Records who signed them to get to work releasing the ambitious 2016 ten-part album series, Kill Your$elf, to the praise of the hip-hop underworld.
Back from the road with SXSW and a slew of international shows under their belt, the boys aren’t messing around, recording close to 30 EP’s and albums in only two years. Their 29th release, Radical $uicide arrived in July 2016 and quickly gained attention peaking at number 17 on the Billboard Rap Charts.
Don’t miss your chance to catch the future of hip-hop and trap music live this May.
