RockPages Talks To TRIUMPH

Tuesday, December 2, 2014

Rockpages Web Magazine did an exclusive interview with TRIUMPH's bassist Mike Levine in the wake of the 30th anniverssary since the release of their album "Thunder Seven" and Levine didn't rule out the possibility of doing another TRIUMPH album in the future. Here's the excerpt (for the full link of the interview check here: - Interviews - Triumph - ) You did a reunion show in Sweden and another one in the States back in 2008. Is there any chance of you doing a full tour and why not record one last album?
Mike Levine: We sit down every couple of months, Gil, Rik and I'and always talking about thee possibility of doing something again. When we did those shows in 2008, everything went so well that we decided to do a full tour. We had booking agents and managers working around the clock to arrange a tour in North America and just when we were ready to begin rehearsals, the recession hit so hard that we all got nervous about the economy and whether anyone could be successful on the road under these circumstances. So, we said: “well, let’s just wait and see how the things will turn out in the coming months and then decide what we will do”. Later on, we just kinda lost our enthusiasm and'well, here we are after 6 years. I am not sayiing that we are not going to tour ever but it’s highly unlikely. As far as recording'I am asking myself: “Does anybody really wwanna hear something new from us?”'I don’t know. Onee thing is certain. If we decide to record once again, it would have to be a bunch of excellent songs'nothing less. We haven’t reached that point yet but as our song goes'Never Say Never.
