Blue Öyster Cult will return with a mammoth new studio album, “The Symbol Remains” on October 9, 2020. 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 simply unphased by it.
Mixed by Tom Lord-Alge, the new album showcases 14 songs that had previously been in the works as well as new ones. “The album title, “The Symbol Remains” comes from a quote of an old Sandy Pearlman lyric, which basically we are using to show that the band is back and still rocking after all these years. To me, it means we’re still here and doing what we do….” explains Eric Bloom.
Eric Bloom and Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser are joined on the album by Jules Radino, Danny Miranda and Richie Castellano, all long time members of the band at this point.
Formed on Long Island at the end of the ’60’s, Blue Öyster Cult are best known for their massive singles, “(Don’t Fear) The Reaper”, “Burnin’ For You”, and “Godzilla”.
