The Rialto Burns to play The Zanzibar Liverpool 26th Oct

The Rialto Burns have announced a show at The Zanzibar in Liverpool on the 26th October showcasing songs from their new album Learning To Fight

During the Toxteth riots of 1981 the burning down of the Rialto ballrooms made newspaper headlines. This destruction of a local hive for entertainment, artistry and community gave rise to the alarming yet explosive newspaper headline The Rialto Burns. Now, almost 30 years later it is with the sentiments of this iconic building that Liverpool’s latest and most innovative sound has evolved.

The Rialto Burns are the five strong Adam (vocals), Pottsy (bass), Alex and Cogsy (guitars) and Shaun (drums). The group met after a rekindling of old friendships and fortunate chance meetings on musicians’ forums. After the band nurtured and developed material, and sorted out who was going to play what, a high-octane live show burst its way onto the Liverpool circuit.

After just a handful of gigs, the band attracted the attention of record labels and signed with ambitious Dance/Indie label Gung-Ho Recordings, home to amongst others, The Japanese Popstars. In 2011 the band released three singles, 'Radiate', 'For The Asking' and 'While You Sleep' - all to critical acclaim and ended the year with the release of their debut album 'Learning To Fight' on 28 November 2011.

After a summer of writing, 2012 sees them return to the live circuit, stronger than ever and showcasing their new material
