NEWS! NEWS! NEWS!! What we’ve all been waiting for!!! October 2020
NEW ALBUM ON SCHEDULE FOR FALL RELEASE:
BLUE ÖYSTER CULT “The Symbol Remains”
RELEASE DATE: October 2020
Blue Öyster Cult return with a mammoth new studio album “The Symbol Remains“ this October. Coming nearly two decades after the release of their last studio album “Curse of the Hidden Mirror,” the album showcases a band who hasn’t been slowed by the time passed, but is simply unphased by it. “The Symbol Remains” is one of their most spirited, diverse, and inspired releases to date.
As the saying goes, “good things come to those who wait” and the 14 new songs on display here embody that. Fans will be delighted with an extremely inspired album which ultimately sounds like a band looking back at their storied catalog and giving the fans a bit of everything they’ve ever loved about BÖC, while simultaneously continuing to evolve.
Blue Öyster Cult are best known for their massive singles "(Don't Fear) The Reaper," "Burnin' for You," and "Godzilla." Riff-heavy and head-banging while intelligently hook-laden, the band remains a constant touring presence and as relevant as ever. Pioneering the heavy metal style while providing inspiration to psychedelic jam bands and arena rockers alike, genre-benders Blue Öyster Cult are a widely respected classic rock band with a storied catalog., BÖC has been covered by everyone from Metallica and HIM to moe, which showcases the wide range influence of their music.
Line-up: Eric Bloom Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser Richie Castellano Danny Miranda Jules Radino
A fellow on facebook who works for Frontiers posted this. I got this from someone who saw it, I didn't see it, but I have no reason to think it wasn't authentic.
I don't condone cross posting of posts from other forums, what's said here should stay here, same for facebook, but I will make this one time exception, since he didn't mind sharing with anyone on facebook.
"Being able to work the new BÖC album is a dream come true for me as I've loved the band since forever. I mention I work for the label not to brag, but simply to be transparent. But when I tell you that this album, which I've had the pleasure of hearing at least 10 times now, is BRILLIANT, I say that as a fan and not someone at the record label. I can't reveal any details because that is the band's right to reveal things first, but I can assure you, from one fan to another, this is well worth the wait. Hang in there...not much longer now. And yes, I was trembling and a bit nervous before I hit play the first time!"
There isn’t much, music wise, that I get excited about anymore to be honest. I don’t go to too many shows anymore either; besides BÖC there are few artists I’ll spend my time and money on. But this year has been an exciting year with BÖC releasing the live shows, which sound phenomenal btw, and now a new album. This I am excited about and from the sound of this gentleman’s post, we’ve got good reason to be. Can’t wait to hear what’s in store. See you at the American Music Theater in Lancaster in 2021!
It's great that the Frontiers people are excited, it helps a lot in marketing when the company thinks they've got something good to sell. And they've all told us they are excited. I don't know what they were expecting, but they've done a lot of late career records by legacy artists before ours.
Anyway, I'm itching for when you folks get to hear it, so we can talk about it.
