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 22, 2008.

One Day As A Lion includes Zack de la Rocha and Jon Theodore.

"One Day As A Lion is both a warning delivered and a promise kept," the band writes. "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," the band says.

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

The details:

  • Recorded by Robert Carranza at Ocean Way Recording
  • Mixed by Mario C at MCJ Studio
