"Just under a month after delivering their award-winning 2016 album Nonagon Infinity, King Gizzard took the stage at San Francisco’s The Independent for a set both wildly frenetic and meticulously executed. Newly unearthed by ATO Records, Live in San Francisco ’16 captures an extraordinary moment in the band’s increasingly storied history, a 13-song spectacular likely to leave every listener awestruck and adrenalized. With nearly half the setlist made up of Nonagon Infinity tracks, Live in San Francisco ’16 unfolds with the same exquisitely controlled chaos King Gizzard brought to that arguable masterpiece - a 9-song body of work crafted as the world’s first infinitely looping LP (i.e., each track flowing seamlessly into the next, with the album-closing 'Road Train' linking straight back into the opener)." - ATO Records
"2016 was peak tightness for Gizz. Around this time we were really into tightly composed sets, and the show was like one long song—everything linked, everything planned. We threw that idea out the window later on, but this live record is a great document of that moment in our collective psyche. We road-tripped a big lap of the U.S.A. in a couple of Ford E-Series vans—I remember driving through the California Redwoods, visiting lots of cities for the first time, lying in piles of trash in Brooklyn. We’d always planned to tape this show, but the recording was buried in dust of time—and then like a boomerang, it came back. And for that I’m glad. I had a lot of fun revisiting it, and I hope everyone can find some joy is this musical time capsule." - Stu Mackenzie
