The band formed sometime around 1991/1992, due to "boredom". Their debut EP, Suits Anyone Fine, was released in 1997 to immediate success and critical acclaim in Europe. Soon afterwards, the band signed with the Swedish label Speech Records, and over the next two years released three further singles, "Face Wet", "Oh Darling", and "Nothing Yet". In 1999 Sahara Hotnights released their debut full-length studio album C'mon Let's Pretend, which earned two Swedish Grammy nominations.
The Drive Dead Slow EP appeared in April 2000, released on the BMG label, before the band's second album Jennie Bomb (named for Jennie Asplund) was released in 2001 (2002 in America). The timing of its release coincided with a surge in interest in Swedish rock'n'roll bands, such as The Hives, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, Mando Diao and Hellacopters. The songs "On Top Of Your World" and "With Or Without Control" were released as singles.
Sahara Hotnights supported The Hives before releasing Kiss & Tell in 2004 on the RCA label. "Hot Night Crash" and "Who Do You Dance For?" have been released as singles from that album. The single "Hot Night Crash" appears on the soundtrack of Burnout 3 and of Tony Hawk's Downhill Jam. The song "No Big Deal" is played in CKY4.
A new single entitled "Cheek to Cheek" from their forthcoming fourth studio album What If Leaving Is a Loving Thing on Stand By Your Band Records was released via the bands myspace. The album will come out on April 18, 2007.
