The line up consists of vocalist Dan Reynolds, bassist Ben McKee, drummer Daniel Platzman and guitarist Wayne “Wing” Sermon. Originally formed in Provo, Utah, the band is now based in Las Vegas, Nevada, Reynolds’ hometown. Imagine Dragons released three EPs named “Imagine Dragons,” “Hell and Silence” [both released in 2010 and recorded in Battle Born Studios in Las Vegas, US] and “It’s Time” before they signed a record deal with Interscope records.
“Continued Silence” was another EP the band put out after working with producer Alex da Kid, it was recorded in California and released in digital format on Valentine’s Day in 2012, achieving the number 40 slot on the Billboard 200. Imagine Dragons went on to release one more EP named “Hear Me” in 2012, before releasing their debut album, “Night Visions” in the summer of 2012.
“Night Visions” was a smash hit across the board as it was the highest charting rock album since 2006. It sold over 83,000 copies and reached the number one spot on Billboard’s Alternative and Rock Album chart. Other countries in which the album reached number one were the UK, Australia, Brazil, Mexico and Canada, to name but a few.
After filling in for a Bite of Las Vegas festival spot [the band Train was set to play] in 2009 and consequently performing to over 26,000 people, Imagine Dragons’ strong live performance could be said to be responsible for their fast tracked success. The band played a series of sold out shows around the US and Europe and have won many awards such as “The Best Breakout Band of 2013” from Billboard. In April 2013 they released a live album entitled “Live at Independent Records” which showcased their live talent.
