The fans demanded it, and the fans finally got it. After 20 years apart, the long-awaited Triumph reunion (of vocalist/guitarist Rik Emmett, bassist/keyboardist Mike Levine, and vocalist/drummer Gil Moore) took place at Sweden Rock Festival, on June 7th, 2008. And on August 28th, 2012, fans outside of Sweden will finally get a chance to see, hear, and experience this awesome reunion.

The ‘Live at Sweden Rock Festival’ set consists of a DVD and CD (both featuring identical track listings), and features all of the Triumph classics fans could hope for.. including – “When the Lights Go Down,” “Lay It On the Line, “Never Surrender,” “Magic Power,” and “Fight the Good Fight “.

Additionally, there are several bonus features, including the on site Triumph Press Conference, a cool “behind the scenes” at the festival, and a photo gallery. And if that wasn’t enough, included will be a full color 18 page booklet, including lyrics, credits, and photos.

“It’s great to finally be able show the world Triumph’s reunion show at the Sweden Rock Festival,” says Levine. “It certainly is one of the most memorable performances of our entire career! And they said it would never happen…”

The Canadian trio became one of the leading hard rock acts in the world during the ’70s and ’80s, with an arsenal of rocking, stadium-shaking anthems, and a magnificent light show that surpassed all of the competition.

Their classic albums ‘Just a Game,’ ‘Allied Forces,’ and ‘Never Surrender’ remain steady sellers, and all of the aforementioned Triumph songs remain rock radio staples – receiving steady play on Clear Channel iHeart Radio and Sirius XM Satellite Radio.

‘Live at Sweden Rock Festival’ will be released on the TML label, distributed by UMG in Canada and ADA in the US. The set will be released throughout Europe on August 24th on Frontiers Records.

Triumph is one of Canada’s greatest Hard Rock bands. With 10 classic albums released between 1976 and 1987, they have left an indelible mark on the history of Hard Rock, Melodic Rock and are nowadays considered among the forefathers of Progressive Metal.

Epitomizing the essence of the Power trio sound: Rik Emmett (guitar and vocals), Mike Levine (bass and keyboards) and Gil Moore (drums and vocals) are regarded as virtuoso musicians in their own right and great entertainers thanks to the Triumph concert spectacle that was second to none.

Frontiers Records is therefore proud to announce that the official reissues of Triumph’s 10 classic albums, in digipak version and with the original tracklistings, will be released on December 3rd.

“In The Beginning” (1976)
“Rock and Roll Machine” (1977)
“Just a Game” (1979)
“Progressions of Power” (1980)
“Allied Forces” (1981)
“Never Surrender” (1983)
“Thunder Seven” (1984)
“Stages” (Live)  (1985)
“The Sport of Kings” (1986)
“Surveillance” (1987)

All CDs have been remastered and feature an extensive booklet including lyrics.

In addition, Frontiers will issue a very limited collector’s edition Box Set entitled Diamond Collection which will include all the 10 albums in vinyl replica, and will feature the artwork from the original vinyl edition of the albums.

While future plans remain uncertain for the band, and after the recent reunion shows, the time to re-live the impressive legacy of their music has come. This new set of reissues is a real present to the Triumph fans, both old and new, who now have the opportunity to own these timeless masterpieces of Classic Rock. Enjoy !

Actor Adam Sandler has always had a knack for including standout classic rock tunes in his movies. His latest flick, Grown Ups, is no different, as Triumph’s hard rocking “Lay it on the Line” is included in the movie, which opens nationwide June 25

Also, the official Japanese release of their new best of set, Triumph: Greatest Hits: Remixed, hit the Land of the Rising Sun on June 23.

Greatest Hits: Remixed was released in the US and Canada on May 18th, and throughout Europe during May as well. All of Triumph’s classic tunes that were – and continue to be – in heavy rotation on rock radio (and the early days of MTV) are included here, namely, the aforementioned “Lay it on the Line,” as well as “Hold On,” “Fight the Good Fight,” “Magic Power,” etc.

These fourteen tracks of anthemic metal have never sounded so good, as they were all recently remixed by Rich Chycki (who has recently worked with Aerosmith and Rush). The set also includes a previously unreleased recording – “Love Hurts” – which will be the lead-off single from Triumph’s Greatest Hits: Remixed.

“We have been planning this release forever,” says bassist Mike Levine. “For years, Triumph fans have been demanding that we give them a fresh greatest hits package and they are going to love this one.”

Also included in the set is a DVD, mixed in 5.1 audio, that features eleven promo and live videos in widescreen (plus additional unreleased videos for “Child of the City,” “Blinding Light Show,” and “Love Hurts”, and footage of the group’s 2008 induction into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame).

The deluxe two-disc package is housed in a six-panel digi pak – including a 20-page color booklet, complete with liner notes, lyrics, and chockfull of vintage photos.

Whether you’re a long-time Triumph fanatic or a new convert, you have never heard the group as crystal clear and loud n’ proud as you will throughout Greatest Hits: Remixed. ”Greatest Hits: Remixed rocks like no other Triumph set,” declares drummer Gil Moore. “This is the definitive Triumph collector’s edition.”
