Originally named "Chiodos Bros. " in tribute to Chiodo Brothers, the band records its first demo in 2002>.

Even after his separation from his first group, Owens still enjoys working with members. On April 26, 2012, Owens announces his return to Chiodos>. As a result, on April 27, the remaining members of D.R.U.G.S. reveal their intention to separate>. The first Chiodos live after their reunification takes place on August 9, 2012 at a Flint Local 432 sold-out party in Michigan.
