Multi-platinum, @grammy_award -winning band @imaginedragons will release their third album, Evolve, on June 23rd via KIDinaKORNER / Interscope Records. The band will also bring its electrifying live show to arenas across North America this fall with the Evolve Tour, produced by Live Nation. The tour kicks off in Phoenix with @grouplove and @kflay at @talkingstickresort on Tuesday, September 26th!
#Evolve is now available for pre-order from all participating digital retailers. Those who pre-order Evolve will receive instant downloads of the first single #Believer plus new songs #Thunder and #WhateverItTakes. “Believer” spent six consecutive weeks at No. 1 at Alternative Radio and broke a 13+ year record for number of spins at the format, besting the record previously held by @linkinpark’s “Faint” in 2003. TIME called “Believer” “another showstopper of an anthem,” while Entertainment Weekly noted its “thudding tribal drums, a massive shout along chorus, and a wicked bassline that’s the sonic equivalent of a slug to the gut.” @billboard called “Believer” “a whimsical-yet-authoritative anthem sure to turn even the most hesitant of optimists into a believer.” Formed in 2009 and featuring lead vocalist #DanReynolds, guitarist #WayneSermon, bassist #BenMcKee, and drummer #DanielPlatzman, #ImagineDragons earned a grassroots following by independently releasing a series of EPs. Imagine Dragons found themselves on a skyward trajectory that saw the album debut at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and became the No. 1 album on Spotify Worldwide for 2013. Night Visions has sold over 5 million copies worldwide. The album’s second single, the 9x-platinum “Radioactive,” hit No. 1 on the #BillboardRockChart and earned the band a 2014 @grammy_award for “Best Rock Performance.” The third single, “Demons,” hit No. 1 at Alternative and Top 40 radio, and has sold 3.9 million copies in the U.S. Imagine Dragons’ platinum-selling second album, Smoke + Mirrors, debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart and has sold 1.1m copies worldwide.
