LOS ANGELES (January 18, 2023) – AXS TV presents the broadcast premiere of the celebrated rock doc Triumph: Rock & Roll Machine—airing Wednesday, January 25 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT.
The film tells the true heavy metal underdog story of Canadian outfit Triumph, whose signature sound and revolutionary stage show rocked fans around the world and skyrocketed the band to superstardom on the strength of chart-topping guitar anthems such as “Fight The Good Fight,” “Hold On,” “Magic Power,” and “Lay It On The Line.” Rock & Roll Machine shines a deserving light on band members Rik Emmett, Mike Levine, and Gil Moore, exploring the impact and influence they had on the hard rock scene throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s, and capturing their long-awaited reunion.
In addition to Emmett, Levine, and Moore, Rock & Roll Machine features commentary from a slate of fellow trailblazers who provide rare insight into the band’s enduring legacy. Highlights include appearances by EMMY-winning actor and musician Kiefer Sutherland, legendary vocalist Sebastian Bach, guitar mastermind John 5, Styx singer Lawrence Gowan, comedian and metal enthusiast Brian Posehn, Bon Jovi guitarist—and former Triumph member—Phil X, and more.
Triumph: Rock & Roll Machine was produced by Banger Films (Alice Cooper, Iron Maiden, Rush and ZZ Top) and directed by Sam Dunn and Marc Ricciardelli. The documentary was funded in part by Round Hill Music, Triumph’s global record label.
