One Day As A Lion are:
Zack de la Rocha
Jon Theodore

Anti- Records is pleased to announce the signing of One Day As A Lion.  An on-going creative collaboration between two like-conscioused individuals, One Day As A Lion will release their eponymous debut EP worldwide on July 22nd.

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.”

One Day As A Lion:

Zack de la Rocha (vocals / keyboards)
Jon Theodore (drums)

The songs:

01 - Wild International
02 – Ocean View
03 – Last Letter
04 – If You Fear Dying
05 – One Day As A Lion
