Dälek Shares “A Heretic’s Influence” Feat. Tool’s Adam Jones

Dälek shares a third single and accompanying video from the group’s forthcoming album, Precipice  (Ipecac Recordings) out April 29, 2022, with today’s release of “A Heretic’s Inheritance.” The new single features Tool guitarist Adam Jones, who helps add texture to the already colorful palette of sound.

“The core of this was built by myself, Mike Manteca, and Joshua Booth,” explains Will Brooks, aka MC Dälek. “I ain’t big on features on Dälek albums … but this one is different. Listening to the rough of this joint late night, I knew whose sound would work perfectly. We’d talked about doing something together for a minute now. It begins with this. Peace to my brother Adam Jones from the legendary TOOL for adding another dimension to this piece. His guitars and synths say all the things I couldn’t say with my voice, so they got their own section to truly sing on in the final mix. I am humbled to have you on this joint fam, and love how seamlessly your sound fits in our sonic world!”

“I’ve been a fan of Dälek since they joined us on our 2010 tour,” explains TOOL’s Adam Jones. “Working together was something we’d thrown around in the past so when Will came to me with ‘A Heretic’s Inheritance’ I, of course, instantly said yes and began sharing ideas with him within a couple of days.”
