One Day As A Lion sideshow flood benefit in Melbourne

By admin - Return to News

ONE DAY AS A LION is the explosive collaboration between
Rage Against The Machine front‐man Zack de la Rocha and former
Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore.

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.

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. ”This is a five-cut call to arms. Perfect in its short sparking length and raucous in its truth; it has all the aural ignition of a gasoline bomb going off in your ears.” – All Music

ONE DAY AS A LION will only be performing one club show whilst in Australia for Soundwave.

100% of show proceeds to benefit Queensland flood victims.
