Death Spells is an American electronic-hardcore band. The group was established in 2012 by former My Chemical Romance rhythm guitarist Frank Iero and James Dewees of The Get Up Kids — both members are also a part of Leathermouth.


Frank Iero and James Dewees were sharing an apartment in Los Angeles, California in 2012 while My Chemical Romance was writing and recording in studio.[citation needed] The project originally came to fruition when Iero and Dewees snuck equipment out of the studio so they could mess around with it and were "trying to blow up each other's speakers."[citation needed] The seediness of the area they were located in was a huge influence to the music, with the pair aiming to get "as grimly as humanely possible" without getting kicked out of the apartment.[citation needed]

In 2013, after My Chemical Romance disbanded, Death Spells started touring. This included a support slot on Mindless Self Indulgence's East Coast US tour as well as playing Skate And Surf festival.[1] Starting a week before the Mindless Self Indulgence tour, Death Spells posted a short demo of a new song each night at midnight, culminating this with their first full single "Where Are My Fucking Pills?" and an accompanying music video.[2]A full-length album was expected to be released in late 2013[3] however as of early 2015 there has been no update on this. The band supported The Architects in three shows in late 2013.
