Blue Öyster Cult is currently hard at work on new material for a studio album that will be released in
2020. According to Eric Bloom, “the band is in the middle of creating new songs and recording them
in between tour dates and, as they evolve in rehearsals and soundchecks, we hope to drop a song
or two into our live shows soon. Everyone is involved in the writing and arrangement of the new
material and we’re all excited about the prospect of a new BÖC album to be released in 2020.”
With a history spanning almost five decades, Blue Öyster Cult has a long history of success and have
sold almost 25 million records worldwide. Songs like ‘Burnin’ for You’, ‘Godzilla’, ‘Astronomy’ and
‘(Don’t Fear) The Reaper’ are true classics and staples of the classic rock genre. Often cited as a
major influence by some of the biggest names in hard rock and metal (including Iron Maiden and
Metallica), the sound of Blue Öyster Cult has evolved through the decades, touching Hardrock, heavy
metal, progressive and psychedelic rock. They are sometimes referred to as “the thinking man’s
heavy metal band,” due to their often cryptic lyrics, literate songwriting, and links to famous authors.
