From the monthly archives: "March 2007"

The weekly radio broadcast, House of Hair with host Dee Snider features Triumph as their Band of the Week. With all the awesome photos and videos, including Follow Your Heart, Lay it On The Line and more, we think you will enjoy this one.

They are also giving 10 lucky visitors the chance to win a copy of Triumph: Live at the US Festival CD/DVD. For contest details on how you can be one of those 10 lucky winners visit the House of Hair contest page. Remember, “If it ain’t Metal, it’s crap!”

Six months ago if you would have asked Gil, Mike or Rik about the likelihood of working together again, much less being on speaking terms, the answers to those questions would have been less than positive. Thanks to their recent induction into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame however all of that seems to be changing.

In the past months alone, they have hung out like old friends, done interviews/press and even come together under the name of Triumph to accept an award for the legacy they have created in the Canadian Music Industry. Now another chapter in the Triumph saga sees Gil Moore and Rik Emmett back in the studio once again.

According to an interview with Rik over at Glam-Metal his latest project with Airtime will receive the Metalworks golden touch. Gil has kindly extended an invitation for the Airtime project to be mastered in his award winning facilities and Rik has accepted. When speaking about the situation Rik was quoted as saying “Something quite fitting about having the beginning of something new complete its journey towards the public by going back to the roots of what Gil, Mike and I started such a long time ago.

With all the press Gil, Mike and Rik have been receiving lately we have to give a serious congrats to Darrin over at Rocksquad.net for all his hard work and perseverance. He has three new interviews with each of the members that you will definitely want to check out. Including a brief mention of the TriumphMusic.com forums in an interview with Gil.

It was quite a weekend for Triumph this past Saturday as Gil, Mike and Rik were honored with an induction into the Canadian Music Industry Hall of Fame. Friends, family and Industry Execs all came out to congratulate Triumph on their long overdue recognition. 

Highlights of the night included an onslaught of requests for the band to get back on the road, Gil’s spontaneous invite to the after party for some fans that traveled all the way from Boston and seeing Triumph on stage together again as friends.

In case you missed out but wish you were there then why not head over to the photo gallery to check out some pictures from the induction and some snapshots from the After Party at the Hard Rock Cafe. Special thanks to Jacki at www.bravewords.com
