Music Premiere – Albert Bouchard – Shadows of California

Albert Bouchard, former member of Blue Oyster Cult, premieres his brand new music video on Stoakes Media.

The song, taken from Al’s latest album Imaginos II Bombs Over Germany, is a darkly haunting, yet brilliant piece of music. Completely different to the Blue Oyster Cult original.

Watch the video below:

Imaginos II Bombs Over Germany is the second instalment of the Imaginos Trilogy, a concept album about an alien conspiracy that is brought to fruition during the late 19th and early 20th century through the actions of Imaginos, an agent of evil.

Talking about the song, Al says;

“This is one of my favourite songs on the Imaginos II Bombs Over Germany album. I love how the track has a sparse and spooky feeling and the lyrics are up there with the very best Sandy Pearlman songs. This music video reflects the tone and texture of this tremendous tune.”

The album weaves scripts and poems by the late Sandy Pearlman. It features guests Ross The Boss (Dictators), Joe Cerisano (Silver Condor, TSO), and reunites original Blue Öyster Cult members Eric Bloom, Donald “Buck Dharma” Roeser and Joe Bouchard, as well current BOC member Richie Castellano, who all contribute to this latest instalment. The album also features reworks of classics like “Cities on Flame with Rock and Roll”, “The Red and the Black”, and “Dominance and Submission”.

The album is available to buy here and if you would like even more of Al along with his brother Joe, the Bouchard Brothers are just coming to the end of a UK tour. The band arrive in Newcastle on the 17th and their final show is in Stoke on Trent on the 18th.
