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

Down
Twenty-five years and nothing but heartache and
Promises I couldn’t keep
Got a pack of reds and half a mind, to end it all right here
My wife, she’s a mess, but the kids they don’t know
And the mortgage ain’t worth the paper it sold
Now I can’t believe it’s finally come to this...

The sun is shining, weeds are growing
All this time I sit here knowin’
Next big thing comes rumbling down the track
Well bubbles burst, that's what they do
Get out first, before it gets you
So much for a time, where things are what they sound
We’re going down

Minimum wage in a minimum state
This type of failure don’t feel too great
Either taxes or cuts don’t make no difference at all
Takin’ a ride don’t get you real far
Especially in someone else’s car
But my take home pay only takes me half the way home

The sun is shining, weeds are growing
All this time I sit here knowin’
Next big thing comes rumbling down the track
Well bubbles burst, that's what they do
Get out first, before it gets you
So much for a time, where things are what they sound
We’re going down


The sun is shining, weeds are growing
All this time I sit here knowin’
Next big thing comes rumbling down the track
Well bubbles burst, that's what they do
Get out first, before it gets you
So much for a time, where things are what they sound
We’re going down

We're going down...

We're going down...
