Former IN FLAMES bassist Peter Iwers has announced his departure from CYHRA, the band featuring vocalist Jake E (ex-AMARANTHE),guitarist Jesper Strömblad (ex-IN FLAMES),guitarist Euge Valovirta (ex-SHINING),and drummer Alex Landenburg (LUCA TURILLI'S RHAPSODY).

CYHRA will continue as a four-piece but Peter's bass lines will still be heard at the band's upcoming shows. Instead of being on stage, his tracks will be reproduced by a computer, "Mr. ASUS."

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

In other news, CYHRA has released the official music video for "Here To Save You", taken from the band's debut album, "Letters To Myself", released last October via Spinefarm Records. The clip was filmed during CYHRA's successful North American tour opening for SABATON and KREATOR this past spring.

Jake E said: "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 U.S. and 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!"

Strömblad said: "With this video we show that CYHRA is here to stay. I am so proud to show what a blast we have on stage and that CYHRA is an amazing live act. I have never felt this good on stage in my whole career and I can't wait to get back on the road soon!"

"Letters To Myself" was recorded at Top Floor Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden.

CYHRA made its live debut in October at Nosturi in Helsinki, Finland.
