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