The label's first releases was from the band Deviate, a band in which Laurens Kusters played the drums. By the late nineties, I Scream Records had over 25 active bands.
In late 2005, I Scream Records opened its US headquarters to work its rosters of bands (90% of which are American) through their own network. Previously, the label's masters were issued under license in the USA by companies such as Victory Records, Bridge 9 Records and Thorp Records.
Recently the label has released records by Life of Agony, Madball, Skarhead, Wisdom in Chains, Incite, Death by Stereo, The Last Resort, Reno Divorce, M.O.D., Jaya the Cat, Stigma, Guajiro and Tying Tiffany to name of few. I Scream Records has also teamed up with Roadrunner Records to re-issue some of their old masters by bands such as Wrecking Crew, Token Entry & Earth Crisis.
In 2008 I Scream Records teamed up with ADA for an exclusive North American distribution deal and extended that deal with ADA Global for the rest of the world in 2009. That same year the label also signed a worldwide co-publishing deal with EMI Publishing for its copyrights.
I Scream is currently being distributed by Avex Group in Japan since April 2010, with the first offering being Incite's new album The Slaughter.
