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.”
