San Diego thrash and hardcore powerhouse Justin Pearson (All Leather, Holy Molar, Head Wound City, Some Girls, Swing Kids, ReTox) teamed up with French electro outfit Ill Saint M in 2013. Pearson is possibly best known from the Locust, who donned matching human-fly costumes with hoods and mesh sockets for eyes and mouth. How to describe their music? IED rhythms. Growled/shrieked lyrics. A virtuosic noise, touched by riotous energy. One Locust tune ran 54 seconds and 7000 notes, the playing high-voltage, incandescent.

Ill Saint M featuring Justin Pearson released their EP A Pig's Orphan via Three One G records on September 24, 2013. It includes remixes by Melt Banana, Nick Zinner, D-r-u-n-k, [Trap], Duran Duran Duran, Satanicpornocultshop, and Mr Henshaw.
