Imagine Dragons is a band from Las Vegas (Nevada) that formed in 2008. Dan Reynolds, the singer, and Andrew Tolman, the drummer, met whilst attending University. They decided to form a band and, after many lineup changes, the band included Wayne Sermon as the lead guitarist and Ben McKee as bassist. In 2010, the band released their two EP’s: the first being self-titled and the second being called Hell and Silence. A year later they released their EP It’s Time which led them to a record deal. In 2012, the band released two EPs they recorded with Alex da Kid called Continued Silence and Hear Me. This was followed by the release of their single “It’s Time” together with a music video. Imagine Dragons finished writing, recording and producing of their first album Night Visions that same year and released it. The album was a huge success as it jumped to 2nd place in the Billboard 200 charts, it was award-winning and reached the top ten in over 11 countries.. The album included massive hits such as “It’s Time”, “Radioactive” which was named “the biggest rock hit of the year” by Rolling Stone and “Demons” which has sold over 5 million copies in the USA. Before releasing their following album, the band worked on projects such as the song “Battle Cry” which was written and recorded as a promotional single for Transformers: Age of Extinction. In 2015, the band released their second studio record Smoke + Mirrors which was recorded in their home studio in Las Vegas. “I Bet My Life” was released as the leading single, then came “Gold” and eventually,“Shots”.
