Last month, Ruby Da Cherry, better known as half of the dynamic duo of $uicideboy$. delivered his second EP under his pop-punk DUCKBOY moniker. The release marked the second in 2023 and underscored a prolific pace set by both members of $uicideboy$ - both collectively and individually.
existential hymns for the average sigma [vol. 9] followed tragic love songs to study to [vol. 5] - each of which showcased Ruby's well established punk pedigree, combined with his uncanny ability to craft a catchy track.
Helming the totality of the project, Duckboy is 100% Ruby, with the musician handling the entirety of the compositions from instrumentation to vocals, concept to execution. On his second EP, existential hymns for the average sigma (vol. 9), Ruby explores his own personal journey while delving into themes outside of the $uicideboy$ universe.
Introducing the second EP, DUCKBOY first unveiled the single "Excalibur" as vibrant introduction that asserts Ruby's creative bandwidth. Driving guitars, anthemic choruses and lively percussion makes for a commanding lead single and now includes an imaginative new music video.
Enlisting frequent collaborator Dill35mm to handle the direction of the video, the cut has fun with a medieval aesthetic, combined with the electrified cadence of the track.
This March, $uicideboy$ resume their touring itinerary with a visit to Australia and New Zealand for international dates of their acclaimed Grey Day Tour. $uicideboy$ will perform at Spark Arena in Auckland on March 23rd and Brisbane's Entertainment Centre on March 26th.
