Blue Öyster Cult To Release New Album “The Symbol Remains” This Fall

Blue Öyster Cult have confirmed that they will be releasing a new album titled “The Symbol Remains” in October. The effort will be the band’s first since 2001.

The following was said about the record:

“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.”
