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

Cover Up

Warning signs
Posted plain but subtle
I think about how I should have known
I laid it out
No space for compromise
One, the son, or three is out

Don’t try to remember me, like it would be
Something I’d expect someone less to do
Don’t try to convince me, it’s empty
‘Cause I’ve talked it up and down
There’s nothing new (true)

Empty clothes
Strong ain’t silent or beautiful
Reaching out to make things whole
Paper thin
Simple math won’t bring it
I know you’ve tried to have it all

Don’t try to remember me, like it would be
Something I’d expect someone less to do
Don’t try to convince me, it’s empty
‘Cause I’ve talked it up and down
There’s nothing new

There’s nothing new…

There’s nothing new…

Don’t try to remember me, like it would be
Something I’d expect someone less to do
Don’t try to convince me, it’s empty
‘Cause I’ve talked it up and down
There’s nothing true

Don’t try to remember me, like it would be
Something I’d expect someone less to do
Don’t try to convince me, it’s empty
‘Cause I’ve talked it up and down
There’s nothing new new
