The Offering Premiere New Song “Tiny Disappointments”

The Offering have premiered a new song titled “Tiny Disappointments.” This track will appear on the band’s new album “Seeing The Elephant,” which is set to be released on November 4.

Alex Richichi commented:

“Even on my most wonderful days, I can find myself feeling strangled by my own expectations and find myself disappointed in little facets of the world, in everyone, and everything. I have found life is made up of ‘Tiny Disappointments’, where overcoming and coping with these ultimately become the hardest thing we do every day. This song addresses those feelings of drowning, which I believe is universal in the human experience – albeit on different scales.”

Nishad George added:

“During the writing process for ‘Seeing the Elephant’, my dad’s cancer diagnosis had gotten much worse, and I had felt this pressure knowing this would be my last album that he could listen to. Living up to my own expectations for making that special was strenuous. Finally, one day I stumbled upon the opening chord to “Tiny Disappointments,” and i just let go – I blinked and 12 hours of euphoria later, the song was complete. It was a massive turning point in the writing process for the album. Less than a month before he passed away, my dad finally got to listen to the album, and pointed out this song as the best we’ve ever done. I couldn’t agree more, and it will always be special to me for that reason alone.”

The Offering Premiere “Ultraviolence” Music Video

The Offering have premiered a new video for their new song “Ultraviolence.” This track is from the band’s new album “Home,” which will be released on August 2.

Guitarist Nishad George commented:

“For ‘Ultraviolence’, we wanted to make a video that represents one of the reoccurring themes Alex sings about on Home, which is the war between the ears. To visually depict this, I wanted to emphasize the physical, emotional, and intellectual breakdown that happens when you lose the battle against yourself.

We made a screenplay inspired by ‘The Most Dangerous Game’, but set in the inner forest, with each remaining bandmate representing one the aforementioned three aspects of humanity. This was incredibly hard to film as Alex put himself in a LOT of physical danger to pull it off. We hope you enjoy it.”

The Offering Premiere “Failure (S.O.S.)” Lyric Video

The Offering have premiered a lyric video for their new song “Failure (S.O.S.).” This track is from the band’s new album “Home,” which will be released on August 2.

“Home” Track Listing:

01. “Waste Away”
02. “Lovesick”
03. “Ultraviolence”
04. “A Dance With Diana”
05. “Failure (S.O.S.)”
06. “Hysteria”
07. “Glory”
08. “Home”

Vocalist Alexander Richichi said the following about the new record:

“HOME’s about feeling small, inconsequential, forgotten, wasted, and questioning how you fit in. My attempt is to see if anyone feels the same anymore. Or am I the only one? And if I’m not, where did everyone go? Lyrically, in this band, no word has one meaning—including HOME. Home, the word, is meant to be a haven, but instead it’s often the root of our traumas. We try not to think about what home we’re born into and how it’s tied to our fate, and how we are ultimately a reflection of our home, our upbringing. It shows us our limitations, how we interpret ‘safety.’ I would like this album to be a ‘home’ that houses people of the same mind, those who can find it as a type of refuge, especially in 2019 where so many of these emotions aren’t accessible to be openly talked about with loved ones. HOME is meant to show that you’re not alone.”
