EMPHATIC Enlist Drummer John Tempesta (Ex-White Zombie, Exodus) For Recording Of New Album “Another Life”

Omaha, Nebraska based hard rockers, Emphatic have revealed more details about their new album “Another Life”, which is scheduled for an October 22nd release through Epochal Artists Records/Capitol Music Group. The band have enlisted the help of drummer John Tempesta (Ex-White Zombie, Testament, Exodus) to lay down drum tracks for the group’s sophomore effort. The album will be the first to feature new frontman Toryn Green, who was previously the singer of multi-platinum rock band Fuel and the touring vocalist for Finnish cello rock band Apocalyptica.

Produced by Emphatic guitarist Justin 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 as they belt out a powerful dose of groundbreaking hard rock. Rejuvenated creatively, the band is now 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”, and shot 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 on the record. From there, the band 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.
