STOCKTON, NJ – June 3, 2022Joe Bouchard is best known as a former member of Blue Öyster Cult. The original lineup sold millions of albums for Columbia Records, with such classic songs as “(Don’t Fear) the Reaper” and the #1 hit on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart “Burning for You.” He contributed to songwriting and lead vocals on some of their greatest songs, such as “Hot Rails to Hell.”

Bouchard releases his brand new album American Rocker, and drops a new lyric video for the haunting track “Deadly Kisses.” Joe had this to say about the song,

“‘Deadly Kisses’ is a song of young love and how it traps you. I sat down in a music room at a private boarding school and played a few odd chords. The opening lines and melody just came out.”

The new album American Rocker sees the return of Mickey Curry (Bryan Adams, Hall and Oates, Alice Cooper) on drums, and sees Bouchard taking a look back at the heyday of the ’70’s with BÖC on tracks like “In the Golden Age,” and “Rocket to Fame.” As Joe states, “American Rocker is a musical journey of my life as a rock star. I feel lucky to live a life of music, and to be fulfilling my wildest dreams.” Deko Entertainment president, Bruce Pucciarello, continues, “If there was ever an album aptly named, Joe Bouchard shares this collection of amazing rock and roll flashbacks. Joe exemplifies the true American rocker.”

Joe Bouchard will be joining his brother, Albert Bouchard, for select shows in North America and their first ever Bouchard Brothers UK Tour this summer.
