Founded in 2008 summer, Fear, and Loathing in Las Vegas was originally formed by members of the bands Ending for a Start and Blank Time. A year later, after an extensive search, So (ex Bombreligion) joined as the sixth member.

In 2011, the song "Jump Around" from the band's extended-play album Nextreme was selected to appear in the video game Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 (in Asia: World Soccer: Winning Eleven 2012) as 4th track .[1]

The song "Chase the Light" was used as the opening theme for Gyakkyō Burai Kaiji: Hakairoku-hen (逆境無頼カイジ 破戒録篇 lit. Suffering Outcast Kaiji: Maverick Arc).

In late 2011, the band's song "Just Awake" was featured as the closing song in the Hunter × Hunter reboot anime; a single was released later in 2012.[2][3]
