Are you a fan of Triumph? The band needs you for a documentary.

Back in the 70s and early 80s, Canadian hard rock was ruled by a couple of power trios. There was Rush, of course, but right behind them was their less-proggy cousins, Triumph.

Like Rush, Triumph became international successes, selling millions of records and concert tickets. Plenty of their songs are still played on the radio worldwide.

Banger Films, the guys behind the Rush doc Beyond the Lighted Stage, Iron Maiden films, and a long list of metal-themed projects, have turned their attention to Triumph’s history with a doc called Triumph: Late It on the Line.

As part of the production, there will be a special event in the Toronto area of November 16 that requires the participation of a certain number of fans. There’s no heavy lifting involved. You just have to be a fan willing to hang out with the band and have some fun with some of the group’s props and gear.

If you’re interested, contact Banger Films at [email protected], You’ll learn everything about being part of the event.

Triumph: Late It on the Line is scheduled for release next year.

    Dear Alan Cross

    I am contacting you to find out more about your Triumph movie and possibly being in it. Triumph was the first concert I ever went to in London ont. In spring of 87 at the London Gardens and they were opened by Brighton Rock.

    A few years ago was able to meet Rick Emmett out back of a venue in Calgary and get all my old albums autographed and few pictures. I also got 2 extra copies of Rock n Roll Machine signed and personalized for brother and our childhood best friend Tony who took me to the concert.

    Contact me with more info about the movie. Both Tony and I are very interested. He still lives in London and i now live in Alberta
