CyHra issued the following statement: “We’re thrilled to inform that Finnish guitarist Euge Valovirta (ex-Shining) will be joining CyHra as our fifth member!

“Euge has already contributed to our forthcoming new album Letters To Myself by playing twin guitars and solos, and he’ll be shredding with us live as well.

“During rehearsals it became obvious that we would need two guitars to reproduce the songs in a live setting so we decided to ask our good friend and amazing guitarist Euge Valovirta to join CyHra. Euge had already done a killer job on the album and we can’t wait to share the stages of the world with him.”

Euge Valovirta added: “I feel very honoured and excited to be part of this amazing band together with these talented and professional guys and I look forward to kick some serious ass on stage on our upcoming tours. I’d like to welcome all our current and future fans to our shows, it will be ass kicking juicy! Oh, and the album is amazing too!”
