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

For Long

Look into my eyes
I’ll make you want to be with me
I’ll make you want to hold me right
I’ll make you wanna try

It’s really no surprise
That we play so easily
That you think I’m happily
Going to say goodbye

Cause when you’re
Feeling like there is no other way
Cause when you’re
Out alone and wishing you could say

Look into my eyes
I’ll make you want to be with me
I’ll make you want to hold me right
I’ll make you wanna try

It’s really no surprise
That we play so easily
That you think I’m happily
Going to say goodbye

I’ve been alone
I’ve known for long
and I’ve walked between the pieces of our song
You’ve been right
Since we tried
To mend our sympathies when there is no rhyme

B. Glassman (MonumentalSounds, ASCAP)
