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

To The New

Snapshots, shy realizations
A bright light of self-made dreams
Reach out so you can stretch far
The potential lies within
Long reigns, legacies of burden
Weight stretched for miles of time
Placement behind rows of history
You're not crossing this line

Don't be afraid my friend
I will lead us to the new
Please remember my friend
Our peace is not true

Hopeless, no navigation
A maze made to help hold you
Righteous, no damnation
It keeps us from dealing with you
Slowly a new step forward
The booker kept minds in line
Divide is part of the answer
With keys the faceless breaks through

Don't be afraid my friend
I will lead us to the new
Please remember my friend
Our peace is not true

Hear what I say, that the word is the way
Here not there, we’re not gonna care

B. Glassman (MonumentalSounds, ASCAP)
