Apart from headlining this year’s Oxegen festival with his old band, Rage Against the Machine, Zach De la Rocha has teamed up with drummer Jon Theodore to form side-project One Day As A Lion. They release their debut EP, a self-titled cut, on July 22nd.
On their website, they declare that ODAAL is: “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.”
