Biography

Cutting their teeth in dingy little casinos on the edge of Las Vegas' famous strip, Imagine Dragons have gone on to follow in the footsteps of the likes of The Killers and Maroon 5 and take their brand of soaring, earnest, indie pop into the mainstream charts. Led by front man Dan Reynolds, the band's reputation grew on college radio through a series of self-released EPs before their breakthrough single 'It's Time' was used on the TV show 'Glee' and shot to number 15 in the US Charts. Their debut album 'Night Visions', released in 2012, went on to reach number two in the US and UK and win praise for its emotional, anthemic melodies and stadium rock ambition, while hit single 'Radioactive' sold over five million copies and reached number three in the US Charts on the back of huge radio play. One of the most downloaded acts of 2013, the four-piece went on to support Muse and headline their own sold-out tour across America. During their final concert of the tour, they announced that they were taking a break to work on their second album. Towards the end of 2014 they revealed the title of the album as 'Smoke + Mirrors' and it was officially released in early 2015. As well as several singles from the album - 'I Bet My Life', 'Gold', 'Shots' and 'Dream' - the band also released two non-album singles onto iTunes - 'Roots' and 'I Was Me'. After touring to promote the album, and recording songs for the films 'Suicide Squad' ('Sucker for Pain') and 'Passengers' ('Levitate'), the band decided to take another short break before their hugely anticipated third album would be released. In early 2017 Imagine Dragons released 'Believer', the first single from their third album. 'Thunder' came next with the announcement of the album title 'Evolve'. Later in 2017 the band embarked on a US tour. Artist biography compiled by BDS/West 10. All rights reserved
