They formed in late 2005, and are influenced by Minor Threat, 7 Seconds and Kid Dynamite. In 2006 they completed a UK tour with American punk bands Set Your Goals and Lifetime. They are currently signed to Banquet Records, who organise shows in and around the Kingston upon Thames area in Greater London.
In August 2007, the band released their debut album in the US on Get Outta Town Records, and toured the US East Coast. Shortly after this went on an unofficial hiatus for seven months at the end of which, in April 2008, they toured with Against Me! and released some new material in the way of a split 7" single with another Brighton band, Beat Express.
In 2008, the band began writing their second album, Bright Grey in Devon, England. The album was recorded in two days. It was released on 29 September 2008. In this year the band recorded a second live session for The Lock Up show.
The band split into two, forming Sauna Youth and Pacer. Bassist Dave House has also released four albums and two splits of solo material that dates back to 2004 before The Steal began.
