This awesome vintage rock jersey is for the Canadian hard rock band Triumph. The group was formed in the mid 70s and consisted of Rik Emmet, Mike Levine, and Gil Moore.This shirt is double-sided with camouflage sleeves and it commemorates the group's 1986-1987 world tour. The tour came right around the time of the group's eight studio album, The Sport of Kings. It would be the second to last album recorded with the band's guitarist and co-lead vocalist Rik Emmet, before he departed to pursue a solo career. The album featured the song "Somebody's Out There", which went on to become Triumph's highest charting song on the Billboard Hot 100. It made it to the No. 27 spot and the No. 9 spot on the Top Rock Tracks chart.
In 1987, Triumph released the album Surveillance from Metalworks Studios. It included the single "Let the Light Shine On Me" which did well on some Canadian radio stations, but failed to chart in the US. The first single off the album released to American radio stations was "Long Time Gone", which made it onto the Top Rock Tracks chart, but failed to gain attention in Canada. The band went on a tour the following year and during that time tensions over business decisions and artistic direction rose. The band's last show together was in September at Canada's Wonderland. After that Emmet departed, and the band would not reunite again until 2008 after they were inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
