Zack de la Rocha (RATM), and Jon Theodore (ex-drummer for The Mars Volta) have been collaborating together on a project titled "One Day As A Lion". This week they released their single on MySpace, titled "Wild International", and their EP is set to release via Anti-Records** on July 22nd. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a fan of RATM. Listening to them on the way to school in 1998, and still in 2008. Then I used to sing the words, now I am hearing the words. There's a message. Your chance to listen. Our time to voice.
"If we don't take action now, then settle for nothing later."
“One Day As A Lion is both a warning delivered and a promise kept."
“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.”
** Side note: Anti-records also released the new record by Tim Fite, Fair Ain't Fair. Download his previous album, "Over The Counter Culture". Download it without having any expections, and see what the outcome is.
