TRIAD was formed in the summer of 1986 by three aspiring musicians from Rutherford County, North Carolina. The name “TRIAD”, which means a group of three (we now have five members), seemed to fit the band well because at about that time there were several cool bands performing with similar names such as Triax and Triumph. We felt that since we were a three-piece band, the name TRIAD was a great name that would stick in people’s minds.
We also wanted to be able to use the name as part of the band logo which we have done by
placing our name within two triangles. This logo has become an icon for our fans to recognize throughout the years since our birth.
