The Sometimes are a rock band. Their unconventional, original compositions are at once heavy, bluesy, and melodic and feature a relentlessly driving rhythm section, soaring and atmospheric lead guitar, and lush acoustic textures.

Cicada Nation, the first full-length album from Northern Virginia rockers, The Sometimes, will be independently released in Spring 2018. Cicada Nation contains 11 original compositions including personal songs of self-reflection and discovery, narrative-based storytelling, cathartic rock songs crafted over years of live performances in bars and breweries across the Commonwealth.

Featured on the album are Kevin Fahy (vocals, guitar), Nicolaus Heun (lead guitar, vocals), Burt Glassman (bass, vocals), and Brian LaFleur (drums, percussion). The album was recorded at Converse Rubber Tracks Studios in Brooklyn, NY with support from Matt Shane and BIAS Studios in Springfield, VA with support from Ken Barnum and Michael Monseur.

Lyrics

Cicada Nation
I can hear the screaming through my window
I can feel them crawling through the grass
Everyone's got something that they're selling
Got their piece to say

Something's buzzing in the air
Something's living in the trees
Nothing to it really, and that is everything

Standing in the wake of a blanket wave
Can't be heard above it
Little wings don't carry you any higher
Flattened underfoot in time

Something's buzzing in the air
Something's living in the trees
Nothing to it really, and that is everything

Hear me out...
See me through...
Feel me, I can't get to you...

Something's buzzing in the air
Something's living in the trees
Nothing to it really, and that is everything

K. Fahy (Actual Species, ASCAP)
