Jesper Strömblad (Ex-In Flames) To Miss Cyhra’s Upcoming Shows

Guitarist Jesper Strömblad (ex-In Flames) will be missing Cyhra’s remaining 2018 shows so he can “focus on some personal matters, and [his] family’s health.” Marcus Sunesson (Engel) will fill in.

Strömblad commented::

“Dear all,

Due to personal reasons concerning my family, I must step aside from Cyhra’s current activities for the rest of the year.

I need to focus on some personal matters, and my family’s health. And therefore, I will not be able to give the band the 100% commitment that is needed.

I’d appreciate a respect of my privacy during this special time.

I am happy that our friend & great guitarist Marcus Sunesson from Engel can fill-in for me for the upcoming Cyhra shows. Please welcome him in with open arms and give him the love & respect you all have given to me.

Next year I’ll be back with recharged heart and soul, and I can’t wait to get back on the road to perform the songs from our new album that I am extremely proud of!

I’ll be back 🙂



The band added:


We are definitely going to miss our good friend Jesper while he takes some time away from the band. However, we know that he will return very soon, ready to unleash his killer riffs and melodies, and most-likely more tattoo’d than ever!

Marcus has already done a few shows with us, and he has done an amazing job. We feel that he is already very much part of the Cyhra family.

We have two shows left for this year (in Sweden; Eskilstuna on Nov 30th and Stockholm on Dec 1st) and those are going to be awesome as always.

2019 will be a big year for us as our second album will be released, and we are planning to (FINALLY!) tour all over the world.

Please come and have a good time & hang out with us.

See you all on the road very soon!



CyHra (Ex-In Flames/Amaranthe, Etc.) Recording New Album

CyHra (ex-In Flames, ex-Amaranthe ex-Shining, etc.) have been at Hansen studios in Ribe, Denmark recording their second album. The effort is expected to be released in early 2019.

Peter Iwers (Ex-In Flames) Exits CyHra, Band Premiere “Here To Save You” Video

CyHra have parted ways with bassist Peter Iwers (ex-In Flames). No replacement has been recruited so the band will use backing tracks for now. They said the following:

“It’s sad to part ways with Peter as a member, but we are still very good friends and will always be. He has our full support in this decision and we wish him nothing else than the best in the future!”

In other news the group have also premiered a new video for “Here To Save You.” Jake E (ex-Amaranthe) commented:

“Releasing “Here To Save You” as a live video was something that we thought of already after finishing up the song in the demo studio. And as we got the possibility to open up for Sabaton and Kreator a couple of months back it was a no-brainer to just make sure to put it on film.

I love how we were able to capture all the positive response, both within the band but also all the love we got for our newfound fans in the US & Canada. Every time I watch it I just want to go back out on the road! I hope you will like it as much as we do!”

Peter Iwers (Ex-In Flames) To Miss CyHra’s North American Tour

Bassist Peter Iwers (ex-In Flames) will be missing CyHra’s upcoming tour with Sabaton and Kreator. The band commented:

“Unfortunately our master of the low frequencies Mr. Peter Iwers has to step out from our North American Tour with Sabaton & Kreator due to prior agreements. But don’t worry you’ll still hear his bass lines ‘cos of our trusted “sixth member” Mr. ASUS ;-)”

CyHra (Ex-In Flames/Amaranthe, Etc.) Premiere “Heartrage” Music Video

CyHra (ex-In Flames, ex-Amaranthe ex-Shining, etc.) have premiered a new video for their song “Heartrage“. This song is from the band’s debut album “Letters To Myself.“

Jake E. told Metal Injection the following:

“Why change a winning concept. Patric Ullaeus has done it again! This video is just phenomenal and finally we can introduce our new guitar player Euge Valovirta in action! The song has always been my favorite song of the album and it’s such a punch in the face in so many ways. I can’t wait to play it live on the upcoming U.S. tour with Sabaton and Kreator!”

CyHra (Ex-In Flames/Amaranthe, Etc.) Premiere New Song “Letter To Myself”

CyHra (ex-In Flames, ex-Amaranthe ex-Shining, etc.) have premiered a new song titled “Letter To Myself“. This song is from the band’s new album “Letters To Myself,“ which will be released on October 20.

Jake E. commented:

“It feels amazing to have ‘Letter To Myself‘ as a single as this was the first song me and Jesper wrote together. I am very proud of how this song ended up and the lyrics are so straight forward that I bet that most people can relate to those. Most of us has been through problems of getting out of a bad relationship or battling with ones like gambling or addiction. I can’t wait to have the whole album to be released and see people’s reactions.”
