The Locust is the third release by The Locust. It was released on Gold Standard Laboratories in March 1997.

The Locust is The Locust's first recording that relies heavily on keyboards and synthesizers, combined with their powerviolence style, influenced mainly by Crossed Out. This is the sound for which The Locust has since become known.

In 2004, the EP was remastered and re-issued on 3" CD and 7" vinyl, and included two bonus tracks.
