The fans spoke, and now they have gotten what they wanted. Canadian rock royalty Triumph, has launched a brand new, completely overhauled website and online store, for all your Triumph needs!
The website will serve as both the band’s official website and as a community for Triumph’s devoted and worldwide following. The new site (whose URL will remain www.TriumphMusic.com) will feature streaming music, videos, classic interviews and memorabilia, as well as many other options for fans to learn the history behind one of Canada’s greatest hard rocking bands. Additionally, by going to Triumph’s new site, you’ll be able to access the group’s Facebook, Myspace, and Twitter pages, as well as the group’s official YouTube page (comprised of kick-ass, vintage video clips), and the Triumph iLike page, where you can purchase downloads of Triumph music.
As the site content continues to grow, Triumph fans will be treated to exclusive free music downloads, a monthly newsletter, fan forum, and online store featuring rare merchandise bundles, including t-shirts, signed CDs, posters, videos, etc., among other goodies.
Right now, there are a total of four “bundles” for sale. There are three different bundles for the ‘Greatest Hits’ release (including a “digital bundle” a “classic bundle” and a “deluxe bundle,”) as well as a “limited edition bundle” for the band’s classic 1977 release, ‘Rock & Roll Machine’ (a release that celebrated its 33rd anniversary of release this past November.)
On December 3rd, Frontier Records released, in Europe only, official reissues of Triumph’s ten classic albums, in digipak version and with the original tracklistings. These albums include ‘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), and ‘Surveillance’ (1987). The CDs have been remastered and have an extensive booklet including lyrics. For the serious Triumph fan, Frontiers has released, also in Europe only, a very limited edition collector’s box set, entitled ‘Diamond Collection,’ which will include all the 10 albums in vinyl replica, featuring the artwork from the original vinyl editions of the albums.
By special arrangement, the Triumph online store has imported 300 Box Sets that are available for sale in North America. The Box Sets are numbered and will not be sold anywhere else.

And always remember…FIGHT THE GOOD FIGHT!
Formed in 1975, TRIUMPH (whose classic line-up comprised of guitarist / vocalist Rik Emmett, bassist / keyboardist Mike Levine, and drummer / vocalist Gil Moore) continues to be one of the most successful rock acts of the 70’s and 80’s, selling out arenas and stadiums all across North America.
The power trio from Toronto toured relentlessly, selling over fifteen million albums worldwide in the process, and penning such all-time great arena anthems as “Rock ‘n Roll Machine,” “Hold On,” “Magic Power,” “Lay It on the Line,” “Fight the Good Fight,” “Allied Forces,” “Never Surrender,” “Spellbound” and “I Live for the Weekend.”
Always purveyors of positive messages in their music, which continues to be a staple at Rock Radio, TRIUMPH headlined on some of the largest festivals of the era, including the 1983 US Festival in California in front of a throng of 500,000 screaming fans.
TRIUMPH was inducted into the Canadian Music and Broadcast Industry Hall of Fame in 2007 and into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2008, and the group reunited for 2 show-stopping performances at the Sweden Rock Festival and the Rocklahoma Festival in 2008.
Most recently, their 1979 hit “Lay it on the Line” from the ‘Greatest Hits Remixed’ package was featured in the summer blockbuster “Grown Ups” (starring Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, and David Spade).
