Cults (the duo of Madeline Follin and Brian Oblivion) have announced a new album, Offering, and shared its title track (also its opening track). Offering is due out October 6 via Sinderlyn. Below is "Offering," followed by the album's tracklist and cover art. The band has also announced some fall tour dates, which are below too.

Offering is the band's third album and it comes four years after 2013's sophomore release, Static. In that time Madeline Follin teamed up with her brother, Richie Follin of Guards (and Willowz) to form a new band appropriately named Follin. Cults consciously decided to take a break, as Oblivion explains in a press release: "I feel like we stepped into a tour van when we were 21, and basically didn't get out of it for the next few years. We wanted to give ourselves some space to have normal lives, and wait until there was something new to say."

Follin adds: "It was exciting, because writing stopped feeling like a homework assignment. I was able to sit down and do it only when I wanted to. These songs are less art projects, less thinking 'this is a heartbreak song, what would Lesley Gore do?' and more reflective of things that have happened in our own lives."

Of the album's first single and title track, "Offering," the band issued this joint statement: "We had been working on a lot of songs for a long time and when this one came together it felt like a release. We were trying to make a jam about finding hope in what can seem like a hopeless situation. It's hard these days to feel like you're being heard, or like the people who might hear you care enough to look outside themselves and help you. The song kind of comes full circle in the bridge, with the lines 'Give back to, the one who first gave you, the one that you know, the one who forgave you, who showed you love.' In stress full moments we think it's important to focus on the people who have helped you out and are there for you. Every cool thing that ever happened started with just a few close people in a room together."

Offering is Cults' first release for the label Sinderlyn. Label head Mike Sniper, an early supporter of the band, had this to say in a press release: "I contacted the band in 2010 when I first heard 'Go Outside' and asked if they were going to make an album. I forgot to tell them I wanted to release said album. I basically started Sinderlyn to try and sign them."
