Omaha-based hard rockers, Emphatic have announced an October 22nd release date for their sophomore album, Another Life, with Epochal Artists Records/Capitol Music Group. The album will be the first to feature new frontman Toryn Green, previously the singer of multi-platinum rock band FUEL and the touring vocalist for Finnish cello-rock band Apocalyptica.
Emphatic guitarist Justin McCain says, “This band has seen its share of difficult situations, and for me, I was the guy that had to decide to give up or fix what was broken. Music is in my blood so giving up isn’t an option.” He continues, “After making that decision to continue we found Toryn and he was everything I’ve ever wanted in a frontman. The record is a reflection of the trials and tribulations we went through as a band over the past couple of years.”
Produced by McCain and co-produced by Ryan Greene at Validus Recording Studios in Los Angeles, Another Life showcases Emphatic’s newfound sense of maturity and creative firepower, joining McCain’s drive with Green’s energy, as they deliver a powerful dose of groundbreaking hard rock. Now, with rejuvenated creativity, the band is firing on all cylinders with a line-up that matches the intensity of their songs. Another Life is filled with gigantic hooks, powerful melodies and is an inspiring triumph over adversity.
Emphatic are best known for their major label debut album Damage, which produced the hit single “Bounce”, shooting the album onto the Billboard Heatseekers charts at #9. The album was produced by Howard Benson (Three Days Grace, Halestorm), and featured A Perfect Circle’s Josh Freese playing drums. From there, Emphatic went on to take part in the Carnival Of Madness Tour alongside hard rock heavyweights Theory of a Deadman, Alter Bridge, Black Stone Cherry, and Adelitas Way.
