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

Standoff

You can’t spin my wheels

Here the truth congeals

Give me the upside

Give me the riptide

We don’t make no deals


When you get round to opening the blinds

You’ll see that we will never change our minds

Even if it comes to mean the end of all mankind

No, I doubt we’d even mind


Chasm remains wide

Standoff now implied

Give me the good try

Give me the white lie

You can’t be denied


When you get ‘round to opening the blinds

You’ll see that we will never change our minds

Even if it comes to mean the end of all mankind

No, I doubt we’d even mind


I don’t believe a thing

I’ll never hear you sing


When you get ‘round to opening the blinds

You’ll see that we will never change our minds

Even if it comes to mean the end of all mankind

No, I doubt we’d even mind


No, I doubt we’d even mind

No, I doubt we’d even mind

No, I doubt we’d---even mind.


K.Fahy (Actual Species, ASCAP)
