Only one of Omaha’s bands is currently on a major label — Emphatic. The hard rockers’ 2011 album, “Damage,” was released on Atlantic, and they have a new album, “Another Life,” coming in October on Capitol. Lead guitarist Justin McCain remains the band’s only original member, but fans should be excited about the addition of new vocalist Toryn Green, former singer of Fuel.
