Triumph’s 40th Anniversary ‘Allied Forces’ Box Set to be released on Record Store Day on June 20th
Big news for Triumph fans as a 40th Year Anniversary Box Set of their 1981 album Allied Forces will be released on Record Store Day via Round Hill Records on June 20, 2021.
Record Store Day Canada‘s website indicates in part:
“One of the greatest and most successful Canadian rock bands of all-time, Triumph, first rose to prominence back in the golden era when vinyl was king – and the preferred format of most music fans.
So, it makes perfect sense for Triumph – Rik Emmett (guitars/vocals), Mike Levine (bass, keyboards) and Gil Moore (drums, vocals) – to be named Record Store Day’s Canadian Ambassadors 2021.
Previous Canadian RSD Ambassadors have included Marie-Mai, The Trews, and The Sheepdogs, and RSD Ambassadors have included Metallica, Pearl Jam, and Brandi Carlile, among others.
To prove this point, the band will also be releasing a Record Store Day exclusive/40th anniversary box set of their classic 1981 album, ‘Allied Forces,’ fully loaded with rare archival content and assorted unearthed gems.
A rock music collector’s dream, the Round Hill Records-issued set will include:
Vinyl #1 : Picture Disc of Original ‘Allied Forces‘ Studio Album
Vinyl #2 : 2xLP ‘Live in Cleveland‘ 1981
Vinyl #3 : 7” Single – Tribute 2021

The trio’s first record to be recorded at their studio, MetalWorks, ‘Allied Forces’ spawned such rock radio hits as “Magic Power,” “Fight the Good Fight,” and “Say Goodbye,” as well as the title track, which became an automatic concert favorite. The album was also the highest-charting of the band’s career and earning platinum certification in the States.
“We’re extremely proud of ‘Allied Forces.’ It was the record that started the global rocket ride for us and we’re also excited to share with our fans some really great moments from our archives with this boxset.” – Mike Levine
