The alternative rock act from Las Vegas has been omnipresent on the radio and charts due to their monster singles “Radioactive” and “Demons” from the album Night Visions. Named the Breakthrough Act and Rock Outfit of 2013 by none other than Rolling Stone the band the group has been caught up in a kind of vortex of popularity lately. They have won a Grammy due to all their success yet have indicated that they will be disappearing after this present world tour in order to recharge their batteries and dedicate themselves to writing the music for the follow up album.
Despite the fact that they have been together since 2008 Imagine Dragons has understandably pretty much flown under the radar until the release of their Night Visions in 2012. The only blip on the radar before that was in 2009 when the lead singer of Train got sick and could not perform so Imagine Dragons was asked to fill in for them at the Bite of Las Vegas Festival. There 26,000 music fans were introduced the quartet and Las Vegas discovered a local act they could get behind.
Imagine Dragons is four guys and consists of lead singer Dan Reynolds, drummer Daniel Platzman, guitarist Wayne Sermon, and bassist Ben McKee. Dan met Berklee College gradyates Wayne and Ben through a friend and the rest is, as they say, history.
