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.
