Airiel was formed as Airiel Project One in 1997, in Bloomington, Indiana, by Jeremy Wrenn and former bandmate Shawn Delaney. This followed the break-up of Wrenn's previous shoegaze band, Black Olive, that released one CD called Verge. Airiel are currently signed to Shelflife Records, an independent record label.
Airiel released a series of EPs through Clairecords which were later re-released as a box-set entitled Winks and Kisses. In 2005, Airiel released their self-titled EP independently, and toured the eastern United States.
In honor of their contribution to the culture of The Principality of Sealand, a micronation, all the members of the band have been named official lords of Sealand , and were slated to be the first rock band to play a concert in the nation. This concert was to be broadcast live over the internet.  
Wrenn and DeBrizzio parted ways with Osborne and Rungger in late 2007. The band relocated to Bridgeport, a neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago shortly thereafter. Airiel toured the UK and Ireland in April 2008 with Ulrich Schnauss. Schnauss had also contributed to The Battle of Sealand, on the track "Sugar Crystals".
