ZACK DE LA ROCHA's ONE DAY AS A LION Plays Third Club Show Ever; Video Available

ONE DAY AS A LION, the project featuring Zack De La Rocha (vocalist for RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE) and Jon Theodore (former drummer of THE MARS VOLTA), played its third show ever last night (Tuesday, March 1) in Australia to benefit the victims the floods in Queensland, the province of Australia that is home to Brisbane and the Great Barrier Reef.

Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be viewed below.

ONE DAY AS A LION sold more than 17,000 copies of its eponymous debut EP (Anti Records) in the United States in its first week of release back in July 2008 to debut at position No. 28 on The Billboard 200 chart.

ONE DAY AS A LION's sound is described in a press release as "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.

According to the band, ONE DAY AS A LION's name was "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."

"One Day As A Lion" was recorded by Robert Carranza at Ocean Way Recording and was mixed by Mario C at MCJ Studio.

The track listing for the CD is as follows:

01. Wild International
02. Ocean View
03. Last Letter
04. If You Fear Dying
05. One Day As A Lion
