The band was formed by Ian Fowles, Jarrod Alexander, Efrem Schulz, Paul Miner and Jim Miner out of were the remnants of Clint, CleanX and the D-Cons (their former bands). They practiced in Jarrod's garage for a few months and then decided to record a demo. They recorded five songs at For The Record Studios, where Paul worked. Out of the five songs, four of them went on to be included on the album If Looks Could Kill, I'd Watch You Die. On March 5, 1998, they played their first show, and soon after began playing more shows around Southern California.

In 1998, Death By Stereo was signed to Indecision Records, and released their first album in the following year. Shortly after Jarrod moved to Boston to pursue music full time at the Berklee School Of Music, and was replaced by Tim Bender. Keith also left the band, to pursue his other bands Throwdown and Eighteen Visions. He was replaced by Dan Palmer, formely of the band Eyelid. They toured for the rest of the year.

In the winter of 1999, during a tour with Straight Faced and Ignite, Brett Gurewitz from Epitaph Records appraoched the band about releasing an album. In 2000, they signed to Epitaph Records, which is one of the biggest Punk Rock labels of all time. Between a tour with Bane and Adamantium, they finished their second album, Day of the Death, which was released in January 2001.

Death By Stereo spent almost all of 2001, touring North America, with bands such as Sick Of It All, BoySetsFire, The Hope Conspiracy, AFI, Rise Against, Nicotine and The Planet Smashers. At this time, Tim decided to leave the band and was replaced by Todd Hennig from 'Heckle' and 'Seven Years War'.

They have since released two more albums. Their albums are released in CD format on Epitaph Records, and in vinyl format on Indecision Records.

Death By Stereo has toured for a long time, and gone to many places, including Europe, USA and Canada. Unfortunately they are yet to play in Asia or Australia. On February 3, 2006, Death By Stereo played in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, marking the beginning of their Death to the Third World tour. They will also be playing in Venezuela, Colombia, Costa Rica and Mexico. Death By Stereo's guitarist Tito left the band in mid-2005. Death By Stereo is now playing as a four-piece band until a replacement guitarist is found. The band has recently commented that they are in no hurry to find a replacement, and that they may even play as a four piece for a long time. Former guitarist Jim Miner recently returned to the band to play two shows with the band in December, but he did not return to the band fulltime.

Death By Stereo has recently finished recording their new album, entitled Death Is My Only Friend, which is due out in 2009.

The name Death By Stereo was taken from a scene in the movie The Lost Boys.
