Frank Iero
Frank Iero
and James Dewees were sharing an apartment in North Hollywood, Los Angeles in 2012 while My Chemical Romance
My Chemical Romance
was writing and recording in studio. 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." 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.

In 2013, after My Chemical Romance
My Chemical Romance
disbanded, Death Spells
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. 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. A full-length album was expected to be released in late 2013, however this never happened due to them moving onto other projects. The band supported The Architects in three shows in late 2013 and released a limited cassette release available at those shows.

released their debut studio album "Nothing Above, Nothing Below" on July 29, 2016.

The band are due to perform at Riot Fest in Denver and Chicago in September 2016. It was recently announced that they will be playing two shows with Iero's solo project, frnkiero and the patience, on the days immediately before and after their Riot Fest Chicago performances.
