Suicideboys “Meet Mr. Niceguy”: Duo Stay Vulnerable on New Song
$uicideboy$ continue to build hype for their forthcoming debut album, I Want to Die in New Orleans, today (Aug. 24) in the form of a new single from the project, "Meet Mr. Niceguy."
The track finds Slick Sloth and Ruby da Cherry entering their melodic alter egos Anthony Mars and Norman Atomic, serving trademark confessions of depression and substance abuse over a moody guitar loop paired with digital hi-hats and claps.
Ruby is particularly harsh in the first verse, blaming a lost relationship on his addictions and blaming his suicidal thoughts on the lover's departure.
"Think about you all the time, think about you all the time/Where the fuck was I when this relationship dried?/I was probably high to realize you left my side/I will finally give out and die, finally give out and die/I would love it if you bring me flowers, if you come by," he croons.
Previously teased snippets of the song hinted at the possibility of a Bones feature, but he doesn't appear on this version. This new track follows "Carrollton," named after the neighborhood in the duo's hometown of New Orleans, as the second single from their new full-length, due on Sept. 7. I Want to Die in New Orleans will be the $uicideboy$'s first studio album after a prolific run of mixtapes and EPs.
The group is currently touring in Europe and launch a domestic run, including a slot at Rolling Loud Bay Area, in support of the new project on Sept. 5. View those tour dates here and listen to $uicideboys$'s "Meet Mr. Niceguy" below.
