Innovative British rockers CYPHER16 have unveiled the third song, “It’s A Long Way Back (From This Road),” from their upcoming second full-length album of the same name.
Says guitarist/vocalist Jack Doolan, “It’s A Long Way Back (From This Road) is about realising that the choices we make in life have actual consequences, often profound and far reaching, and which can completely change the lives of others as well as our own. It also explores the idea of whether, once you’re so far into something, it is even possible to ever get back from it. Do we even want to fully expel the negative and destructive things in our lives? Are some of us addicted to the chaos it causes?
During the current uncertain climate, the song has also taken on an unexpected relevance. Where will we find ourselves when the Coronavirus is finally under control? How will the world have changed, and will there be any going back to how things were before?
“It’s A Long Way Back (From This Road)” was produced by Jakob Herrmann (Machine Head) at Top Floor Studios in Sweden, mixed by Jacob Hansen (Volbeat) at Hansen Studios in Denmark and mastered by Sean Magee (The Beatles) at Abbey Road Studios in England.

A refreshingly original rock band, CYPHER16 harnesses metal with a hint of modern industrial to create a truly massive sound. The band’s debut album, The Great Surveyor, was released in October 2015 to rave reviews. CYPHER16 has toured in 17 countries, including multiple tours of America, China and India, playing shows and festivals with the top names in metal.
CYPHER16 is also known for epic music videos, filmed at famous landmarks such as Battersea Power Station (“Lonely Road”) and The Natural History Museum (“Open the Dark Door”), where the band was given unprecedented access for an entire night, in 2017.
