TRIUMPH’S CLASSIC BREAKTHROUGH ALBUM, ‘ALLIED FORCES’ TO BE REISSUED AS KILLER VINYL PACKAGE FOR 30TH ANNIVERSARY, ROCKLINE APPEARANCE ANNOUNCED

July 29th, 2011

Triumph’s 1981 release, ‘Allied Forces,’ was the album where it all came together for these Canadian prog-metallists – great compositions, great performances, and great album design…back when album designs mattered!  And now, fans will be able to take a highly welcome trip down memory lane, as ‘Allied Forces’ will be reissued as a “30th Anniversary Vinyl Edition.” on Tuesday, September 20th, 2011.

The album’s tracks are from the original source material (as prepared by the legendary Bob Ludwig), while the packaging itself will exactly mirror the original ’81 vinyl version (including the four-color, UV coated inner sleeve, complete with photos, lyrics and credits). The record itself will be pressed on pristine 180 gram vinyl, which will also include a free download card, so fans can download this rock n’ roll classic , as well as a video, directly to their digital player.

TML Entertainment will be releasing the album, distributed by ADA in the US and UMG in Canada. The LP will be manufactured by Rainbo Records in Los Angeles, the premier replicator of vinyl in North America.

‘Allied Forces’ spawned two of Triumph’s most beloved and enduring arena rock anthems – “Magic Power” and “Fight the Good Fight.”

Produced by the group themselves (vocalist/guitarist Rik Emmett, bassist Michael Levine, and vocalist/drummer Gil Moore), the nine-track album was certified Platinum , and has gone on to sell an impressive 2.5 million copies worldwide.

“I am excited that the ‘Allied Forces’ LP is being re-released,” enthuses Levine. “Vinyl was always my favorite audio format, because it has really nice warmth and depth. Yet another reason to polish up the turntable and crank up the volume!”

Additionally, all three members of Triumph, will be debuting the release of the album along with host Bob Coburn, live on Rockline, Wednesday, September 21st (30 years to the week of the album’s original release).

Soon, you will be able to re-create the excitement you experienced when you cruised down to the local record shop to pick up ‘Allied Forces,’ back in the fall of ’81.

Get prepared to fight the good fight once more!

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 25th.

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

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.”

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.”
