One Day As A Lion - “Wild International”

The first taste of Zack De La Rocha and Jon Theodore’s One Day As A Lion project is now streaming online. The simplicity of the band’s setup is it’s strong suit: the straightforward keyboard melodies and thick backbeats are effectively anthemic and easily digestible, leaving the focus on Rocha’s always heated verse. Lyrically and stylistically he doesn’t appear to have lost a step since his peak in RATM. Since his style has been oft copied but never duplicated it’s refreshing just to hear him back in his element, no wild re-imagining necessary. One Day As A Lion’s 5-song debut EP will be released 7/22 on Anti.
