The Little Deaths was an American rock band formed in San Francisco, California in 1997. The band was associated with the 1990s Queercore movement and became part of the San Francisco Bay-Area's late-90's musical renaissance which spawned bands like Subtonix, The Phantom Limbs, Erase Errata, The Vanishing, and the 7 Year Bitch offshoot, Clone. The Little Deaths toured and played shows with bands such as The Need, Le Tigre, The Haggard and Imperial Teen extensively until 2000. They released one critically-acclaimed album entitled "" on New York-based Queercore label Heartcore Records in 1999. The Little Deaths went through several line-up changes before disbanding in 2000.

After the band broke up, Mikel Delgado joined Whysall Lane in 2001, a group formed by Richard Baluyut, formerly of Versus, which also included Adam Pfahler, formerly of Jawbreaker, and Lorna Lithgow. After Lorna left, the group released one split single, one track on a 2004 TeenBeat compilation, and one self-titled album on Blackball Records in 2006. Later in that year Mikel left the band.

Whitney Skillcorn joined forces with Jody Bleyle of Team Dresch and Tamala Poljak of Longstocking to form the group Infinite Xs. The group released one recording on the Chainsaw label in 2002. She then went on to form Robo Sapien with Chad Byrne in 2002. The duo currently resides in Carrboro, North Carolina where they continue to write and home record genre crossing emo dance music.

Lead singer Aaron Detroit later played synthesizer with the Dame Darcy-fronted band Death By Doll. They released the album "Gasoline" in 2006.
