Also known for his many other projects, particularly the costumed, sci-fi grind/noise outfit the Locust, Pearson talks about the importance of progressing as a musician and how peoples' expectations don't weigh heavily on him.

Ugly Animals was released in August of 2011 via Mike Patton's Ipecac Recordings.
