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 along side 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, is shows the bands progression away from ska to a heavier punky grungy sound.
These boys play loud, sing loud and have fun.
