Dälek, “the subversive indie hip-hop outfit” (Pitchfork), release their eighth album, ‘Precipice’, via Ipecac Recordings.  Forged in the fires of the East Coast underground music scene of the late ‘90s, experimental hip-hop pioneers Dälek have spent the past two decades carving out a unique niche fusing hardcore hip-hop, noise and a radical approach to sound. Their brutal sonic temperament pushes rap music’s capacity for noise and protest to exhilarating conclusion.  Following in the footsteps of Public Enemy while drawing influences from My Bloody Valentine and Faust, Dälek have succeeded in adding completely new textural and structural dimensions to rap music.  Predominantly the work of Brooks and Manteca (aka Mike Mare), ‘Precipice’ was recorded and mixed by the two band members at their Deadverse Studios in Dälek’s hometown of Union City, N.J.  Tool’s Adam Jones guests (guitar / synth) on ‘A Heretic’s Inheritance’. The band have supported Tool on tour previously.  The album’s cover was created by Paul Romano (Mastodon, Withered) with interior packaging featuring the art of Afrofuturist painter, Mikel Elam.  The band have toured with and supported a wide range of acts in the hip-hop, rock, metal and experimental genres, including KRS One, Tomahawk, The Melvins, Grandmaster Flash, Jesu, Dillinger Escape Plan, Pharcyde, RJD2, De La Soul, Flying Lotus, The Bug, Mastodon and Fantomas, among many others.
