In October 2005, the band released its debut album, Paradoxes, on the Jerkov label.In 2006 the band recorded a cover version of David Bowie's "I'm Deranged" for the Chicago-based label FTC Records. The compilation entitled 2. Contamination includes bands such as Arcade Fire, The Dresden Dolls, and David J.
Sibyl Vane's next album, The Locked Suitcase, was released in October 2008.This album was recorded in France and mixed at the Hotel2Tango, Montréal by Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, A Silver Mt. Zion). Artists such as Mike Garson and Lydia Lunch have collaborated with the band and appear on the album.
