The Locust Members Share 7” Single From New Asia Argento Film

Justin Pearson + Gabe Serbian

As highly theatrical as The Locust and its prickly side projects (Head Wound City, Retox) have always been, nothing could prepare us for the film debut of bassist/singer Justin Pearson. Having been personally selected for a supporting role in Asia Argento’s latest feature (Incompresa, a.k.a. Misunderstood in the States), Pearson found himself playing the punk rock boyfriend of Charlotte Gainsbourg. Not only that; the Three One G founder also cut a 7” single of exclusive music alongside his longtime friend and bandmate, drummer Gabe Serbian (The Locust, Head Wound City).

“I’m not an actor,” Pearson said of his newfound starhood. “Heck, I’m not even a musician. I just dove in headfirst as I always do and hoped it would turn out decent. With that being said, I am so grateful for the opportunity to act, score, and whatever else. There is a huge sea of stuff out there so to get attention and be part of relevant projects is amazing.”

Have an early listen to “Old Age Lasts Too Long” and “Attractive Mammals” down below, and look out for their official pressing later this week through Three One G. Pearson’s Retox band will also be rolling through San Diego’s Music Thing on November 14th…
