So, remember back in September when I said I wouldn't get my hopes up about Rage Against the Machine frontman Zack de la Rocha's supposedly completed solo album reaching the public anytime soon? There's good news and mixed news.
The good: a disc of new de la Rocha material has an actual release date of July 22; the mixed: it's only an EP, and comes from sessions de la Rocha had been doing with former Mars Volta drummer Jon Theodore (in fact, they're now a whole other band, One Day as a Lion), so, it's safe to assume that most of the material dude's been working on since RATM split won't be on here.
Still, sounds promising enough, and the ragey name is also pretty cool (as in, "It's better to live one day as a lion, than a thousand years as a lamb")...
UPDATE: Check out their first single, "Wild International." Yes, it's pretty much what you'd expect, but it's also awesome.
