Zack de la Rocha Surfaces In One Day As A Lion, Who Has Signed To Anti Records

Anti Records has signed One Day As A Lion, the new project of Zack de la Rocha (Rage Against the Machine) and Jon Theodore (The Mars Volta). The band will be releasing its self-titled debut EP on July 22nd.

Here is the tracklisting:

1. Wild International
2. Ocean View
3. Last Letter
4. If You Fear Dying
5. One Day As A Lion

The band writes:

"One Day As A Lion is both a warning delivered and a promise kept."

"A defiant affirmation of the possibilities that exist in the space between kick and snare. It’s a sonic reflection of the visceral tension between a picturesque fabricated cultural landscape, and the brutal socioeconomic realities it attempts to mask. One Day As A Lion is a recorded interaction between Zack de la Rocha and Jon Theodore from Los Angeles, California."

"The name taken from the infamous 1970 black and white, captured by legendary Chicano photographer George Rodriguez featuring a center framed tag on a white wall in an unspecified section of Boyle Heights. It reads: 'It's better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand years as a lamb.' This record is a stripped down attempt to realize this sentiment in sound."
