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

The Job
Don't know why the Summer sings
And so do you--by the looks of things...
You crack a smile and then a nod
Something tells me it’s all for naught

I can see our fortune
Like the shadow-moon in the daylight sky, and I
I can hear you comin'
Like a freight-train rolling a thousand miles
And you----you got the best of me

Last I saw, in an unmarked car
And you, walking up to them from afar
I find it strange in this time and day
Your new friends in blue and the cash they pay

I can see our fortune
Like the shadow-moon in the daylight sky, and I
I can hear you comin'
Like a freight-train rolling a thousand miles
And you---
And you----you got the best of me

I can see our fortune
Like the shadow-moon in the daylight sky, and I
I can hear you comin'
Like a freight-train rolling a thousand miles
And you----you got the best of me

N. Heun (TruckerFight, ASCAP)
