CYHRA, a new project featuring former Amaranthe singer Jake E. and ex-In Flames guitarist Jesper Strömblad, have signed to Spinefarm Records. The band, which formed a year ago, will enter the studio this spring, with the debut album expected to drop in the fall.
The core members, who cut their teeth in two incredibly influential metal bands, recruited other well-respected musicians to complete the lineup and the rhythm section: Drummer Alex Landenburg, known from his work with Rhapsody and Annihilator, as well as bass player Peter Iwers of In Flames and Stoney Mountain. The addition of Landenburg and Iwers helped to fuel the CYHRA songwriting process and to solidify their overall sound.
“The excitement I feel about CYHRA is over the top,” Jake E. said. “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!”
Strömblad stated, “For the first time for as long as I can remember, I feel I am a part of something special. This band has helped me regain my true passion for music. I can’t wait to share this to the world!”
CYHRA plan to tour the world in support of their Spinefarm debut.
