One Day As A Lion's debut EP is out this month
The band, named One Day As A Lion, will release their self-titled debut EP on July 21. De La Rocha plays keyboard and sings in the band, while Theadore drums.
According to the band One Day As A Lion “is both a warning delivered and a promise kept”.
In a statement the duo outlined their sound and mentality, saying the band was “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.
“The name [is] 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 tracklisting of the band’s self-titled EP will be:
‘If You Fear Dying’
‘One Day As A Lion’
