Tio Rico Bio:
Noise grunk outta Manchester, UK.
Tío Rico was formed by Scott (bass / vocals) and Ed (guitar / lead vocals) in late 2015 and, joined by Matt (Drums) shortly after, they got together and started working on a few song ideas.
Initially gravitating towards a sound that comprised of slow ska punk they recorded a self titled 5 track Demo with the help of long term friend Duncan with one song featuring on the Død Incarnate Records sampler alongside grind-core bands.
In September 2016 they went to Pressure Drop Studios in Stockport and recorded their single "Mr Big Shot" with Will Farley (Stay Clean Jolene / The Leif Ericsson) which was released through Horn & Hoof Records.
Their last EP, "Business and Pleasure" was again recorded with Will Farley and released in July 2017. It shows the band's progression away from ska to a heavier punky grungy sound.
These boys play loud, sing loud and have fun.
