Following the triumphant success of their 50th Anniversary celebration, Blue Öyster Cult is gearing up for the release of the eagerly anticipated “50th Anniversary Live – Second Night”. This electrifying performance, which includes the band’s second album “Tyranny and Mutation” performed back-to-back, is set to hit the shelves on August 9, 2024 and promises to be a spectacular follow-up to the band’s historic three-night stint at Sony Hall in NYC. The band kicks off the album’s release with ‘7 Screaming Diz-Busters (Live)’ accompanied by a performance video that can be seeing below.

In September 2022, Blue Öyster Cult enthralled fans with a unique trilogy of sold-out shows, each dedicated to one of their first three albums. Founding member Albert Bouchard made a special appearance on all three nights, adding a nostalgic touch to the historic milestone.

For nearly three hours each night, the band delivered a spellbinding set, weaving through the entirety of their classic initial trilogy of albums and treating fans to a mix of favorites, deep cuts, and classic hits. The atmosphere was electric, and Frontiers Music captured the magic, set to release each night as a special individual package

Blue Öyster Cult‘s legacy spans over five decades, captivating fans with intelligent hard rock loaded with classic songs. Hailing from Long Island, NY, the band is renowned in the hard rock and heavy metal scene for their pioneering work, earning both critical acclaim and commercial success.

Cited as a major influence by acts like Metallica, Blue Öyster Cult boasts a timeless catalog, including iconic tracks like ‘(Don’t Fear) The Reaper’, ‘Godzilla’, and ‘Burnin’ for You’. The creative vision of the original core duo, Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser and Eric Bloom, is complemented by Richie Castellano, Danny Miranda, and Jules Radino, forming a powerhouse lineup.

This release follows “Ghost Stories”, a captivating collection of reimagined and completed songs from 1978 to 2016. These musical treasures, long considered the ‘lost gems’ by Blue Öyster Cult enthusiasts, were originally recorded between 1978 and 1983, except for one track from 2016, ‘If I Fell’. Some of the material is from workshopping albums, some from performance rehearsals, and all were recorded once in the hopes that someday they’d see the light of day.

George Geranios, the band’s original audio engineer and an integral part of the band’s golden years produced the tracks along with BÖC and all were originally recorded on reel-to-reel analog tape. He transferred them to digital audio which is when modern AI and magical musical talents meet and the collection of vintage multi-track recordings was de-mixed, re-mixed, and produced by Steve Schenck and Richie Castellano to become “Ghost Stories”. The album celebrates the recording legacy of one of rock’s most iconic fixtures from the past 50 years.
