The band was formed in 1995 under the name Luke Warm, but the name was later changed to Lukestar. In 2002, they released their first EP entitled Code: Distance, and two years later, in 2004, they released their debut full-length album Alpine Unit. In January 2008, the band's second album Lake Toba was released. Also in 2008, band members Even Djønne, and Eirik L. Bærulfsen, were replaced by Jørgen Larsen, and Torbjørn Hafnor, from hardcore punk band The Spectacle.
