The band was formed by longtime friends David Gray and Jason Mendonca. Since its inception, the band has courted controversy due to an overt use of sexual and satanic imagery and themes.
A Live CD/DVD and a new album set to be released in 2010 remain unreleased, and according to various band members Akercocke have split up.
They played one last show in April 2011 in France.
