Hey Mr. cage man let me get a fresh breath
Cherry bomb head strong I could fake my own death
Hey Mr. fate man shuffle me a ninth life
I’ve been wrong, go long
throwing me a sharp right
It’s not a picture perfect life
Not what I had in mind
Let me write my own line
I’ve got this place
That I’ve filled with empty space
Oh I’m trying not to face what I’ve done
My hopeless opus
I’m in this race and I’m hoping just to place
Looking at the lonely telegram, I crept into your room
Listen to the breathing voices of the ones around the tomb
The radio is playing, but I can't hear them sing
The people are explaining, but they don't know a thing
Give me a sign, give me a sign
I wanna die tonight
They say that London sounds like a city of red
All the prisoners wait for their turn to be dead
Oh You don't love me
You don't love me like you say you do
It's time to celebrate for alt-rockers Imagine Dragons, as their debut album has just gone platinum (1 million copies sold) in the U.S.
Night Visions was released in September 2012 and has since spent 40 weeks on the Billboard album chart, with a current hold on the No. 7 spot.
The album has blown up the singles charts as well, with It's Time and Radioactive both carving out space in the top 40. The popular tunes gained recognition in spots for teen flick The Perks of Being a Wallflower last fall and the new ad campaign for Beats By Dre Powerbeats headphones...
Imagine Dragons has received attention across the U.S. from industry professionals and fans alike, continuously growing their loyal fan base. Their most recent West Coast tour with The Parlotones was highly successful, with sold-out shows along the West Coast ending with a final packed performance at L.A.'s The Viper Room.
This past spring, the band was invited to perform at Bergenfest in Norway, expanding their fan base outside of the U.S. Fans can catch Imagine Dragons on August 20 at The Roxy in Los Angeles as they perform as part of the Sunset Strip Music Festival. Imagine...
The show began with a small alternative band from Ames, Iowa-- The Envy Corps. With a pop-culture influence and a rock feel, the music was the perfect combination. They began with heavy bass that had the mosh pit shaking. Personally, I loved their strong, sharp strums in the music featuring harsh notes on their guitar. I had never heard one of their songs before, but seconds after hearing them, I was cheering. The crowd seemed to love them too because I caught multiple people trying to Shazam their songs. Something I thoroughly enjoyed was their similar sound to Imagine Dragons, so it was a...
Standing on-stage Thursday night at the Hollywood Palladium, Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons looked out at a capacity crowd and said with astonishment, “I don’t even know how this many people know about us.”
His bandmates had a hunch, however. That was the moment they powered up “Radioactive,” the moody electro-grunge single that tops three of Billboard’s rock charts and sits at No. 9 on the Hot 100, nestled comfortably between tunes by Rihanna and Bruno Mars. It’s this Las Vegas group’s second big radio smash following “It’s Time,” which set a record last...

I saw Imagine Dragons over three years ago at the Velour, a dimly lit and intimate music hovel in downtown Provo. That stage was small, the building had a 250 person capacity and the band was one that seemed to still be finding its direction. That was not the same band I saw tonight playing for a crowd of over 8,000 in a full-blown rock show at the UCCU Events Center.
I’m not talking about the changes they’ve made to their lineup. The Imagine Dragons of today are a fully realized indie rock ensemble...
