CYHRA - release third single 'IF I'!
With only a month left until the release of CYHRA's new album The Vertigo Trigger, the Swedes today deliver the album's third single 'IF I'. The melodic metallers, based around singer Jake E (ex-AMARANTHE) and guitarists Jesper Strömblad (THE HALO EFFECT/ex-IN FLAMES) and Euge Valovirta (ex-SHINING), offer a track brimming with tuneful heaviness, ear-worm riffs, and a striking chorus. The track especially salutes the Gothenburg metal scene, meaning that 'IF I' provides all the elements to make a perfect CYHRA song.
Along with the release of the new single, the Swedes also present an accompanying new visualizer video, which can be witnessed here: https://youtu.be/PJsccYq9mHs

Vocalist Jake E comments:
"'IF I' is a song that includes all the influences we all grew up with from the Gothenburg metal scene. Great melodies with a sing along chorus. The video is directed by ourselves with material captured by band and crew during our 9-show tour in Japan this past January."
Drummer Alex Landenburg adds:
"It’s probably our heaviest track so far and I just can’t get enough of that riff! Pure Gothenburg metal!"
Guitarist Euge Valovirta about the new song:
”I intentionally wrote the song for one of my YouTube-videos and people really liked it and were asking where they could buy it. I sent it to Jake, and even he loved it instantly. He tweaked the verse and chorus a bit to make it a bit more of a Cyhra tune and it turned out fantastic. It’s kind of an old school Gothenburg style - melodic metal song and the title is a bit of a word play about a certain band that was one of the inspirations for the song. It starts with amazing drum fill by Alex and after that the cows are out from the barn and running wild. Hell yeah!”
Marcus Sunesson adds:
”'IF I' is one of the faster, up-tempo songs on the new album. Cyhra’s way of paying homage to the Gothenburg scene with all the glorious melodies and riffs. A real banger and a fun song to play!"
Jesper Strömblad comments as well:
"This tune is the fastest track we ever wrote. It’s so much fun to play, we can’t wait to share it with you on stage. See you in the pit!"
