About Group formed to make a record of improvised music for the Treader label in 2009, having never played together as a whole before the day it took them to make their first album. They then supported Gang Gang Dance at London's Dingwalls for their debut live performance, and followed this with a show at Ornette Coleman's Meltdown Festival at the Queen Elizabeth Hall. About Group also played Glastonbury Festival 2010 and took part in the Calling Out of Context festival at London's ICA, in which audiences were invited to watch the creative process of a recording and mixing session.
