James: I have this other thing going with Frank from MCR called Death Spells. We’re opening up for Mindless Self Indulgence in two or three weeks. It’s more like an electronic-hardcore project. We’ve been working with a visual graphics artist and he’s been making these insane videos for us. The music is al little more intense than what MCR was or Reggie. It’s more in the vein of Ministry and stuff like that.
POZ: There’s nothing out for that yet, is there?
James: No, we just posted a song for fun online to get a demo out there. We have a full-length written. There’s red tape to go through before we can announce it.

On Friday, a lot of fans began wondering if Reggie came back because MCR is no longer a thing. 
We’ve been off from MCR for a while. For me, I’m friends with everybody, but when I came back from Los Angeles, I wanted to get busy again. I hadn’t been paying attention to it. I got a bunch of emails last night when the announcement came out. When you’re ready for something to be over, it should be over. You shouldn’t force yourself to do anything you don’t want to do anymore. I’m not 100% sure, but Gerard wants to do other stuff. Frank wants to do other stuff. They all want to. That’s fine. It doesn’t mean it’ll never happen again, but it means that everyone wants a real break from it. They don’t want to say it’s a hiatus because then it still lingers over your head. If you say you’re breaking up, cool, then you can stop. You don’t have to answer emails anymore until you want to. I think everybody is going to do a lot of great stuff solo. Everybody is so talented. It’s going to be really, really cool to see what happens in the next year or two.
