CYHRA, the new band featuring former AMARANTHE singer Jake E. and ex-IN FLAMES guitarist Jesper Strömblad, have revealed details of their forthcoming debut album, “Letters To Myself”.
Due for release on October 20th 2017, “Letters To Myself” features plenty of the magic that each member of the band has become known for over the years. From the blissfully melodic thrust of Jesper Strömblad’s riffs and hooks, and the soaring, soulful splendour of Jake E.’s unmistakable voice to the pummelling, groove-driven precision of Peter Iwers, and Alex Landenburg’s rhythmic bedrock, every last moment crackles with the excitement of fresh territory, new challenges and a brand new identity for all involved to embrace. The cover artwork can be seen below, created by Gustavo Sazes.

Formed in 2016 by long-time friends Jake E. and Jesper Strömblad , Cyhra are about to light a fire under the contemporary metal scene that promises to blaze for decades to come.
With former In Flames bassist Peter Iwers plus Alex Landenburg (current drummer with power metal titans Luca Turilli’s Rhapsody and a former member of thrash legends Annihilator) completing the line-up, the buzz around Cyhra has been growing at a rapid rate since the band unveiled their plans earlier this year..
“The excitement that I feel about Cyhra is over the top,” Jake E. exclaims. “I have to pinch myself every day to make sure it’s not just another dream. I am so proud of the music we have created and I can’t wait to show it to the world!”
“For the first time for as long as I can remember, I feel I am a part of something special,” adds Strömblad. “This band has helped me regain my true passion for music. I can’t wait to share this with the world!”
Cyhra plan to tour globally in support of their Spinefarm debut, with their first show scheduled for October 27th 2017 at Nosturi in Helsinki, Finland.
