CYHRA has been forced to cancel its performance on February 19 at Revolution in Boise, Idaho as part of the band's U.S. tour with SABATON and KREATOR. The Swedish outfit explained in a statement: "During the drive from Calgary to Boise on Sunday, February 18th, the band's bus's heating system broke in the middle of nowhere in Montana. It was around -20 Celsius, but they made it to Helena, Montana last night completely frozen. They are okay now after a warm night in a hotel but everyone is currently ill and especially their lead vocalist Jake E, whose voice is almost gone.
"We're really sorry that we have to cancel the Boise show, but we can't risk our health any more by trying to make it to Boise in these extreme winter conditions without any electricity and heat in our bus.
"Due to Jake's illness and the well-being of the rest of the band at the moment, we would more than likely not be able to perform at our best this evening.
"We truly pride ourselves in giving our fans 1000% every show and we are deeply saddened to have to cancel tonight's event. Right now our aim is to make it to Denver in time for the show in Englewood at Gothic Theatre on February 21st. All support and wishes appreciated."
CYHRA is the new band featuring vocalist Jake E (ex-AMARANTHE), guitarist Jesper Strömblad (ex-IN FLAMES), guitarist Euge Valovirta (ex-SHINING), bassist Peter Iwers (ex-IN FLAMES) and drummer Alex Landenburg (LUCA TURILLI'S RHAPSODY).
CYHRA's video for the song "Heartrage" can be seen below. The track is taken from the band's debut album, "Letters To Myself", which was released last October via Spinefarm Records. The disc was recorded at Top Floor Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden.
CYHRA made its live debut on October 27 at Nosturi in Helsinki, Finland.
