The History So Far
Imagine Dragons was not like a pre-planned group. The gems in the band came together one by one. In fact, formation of the band can be traced back only to the duo Dan Reynolds and Andrew Tolman meeting up as students of the same university sometime in 2008. Daniel Wayne was later added by Tolman who then also brought Brittany Tolman as a backup singer and keys player. Wayne then went on to bring another talented member to the group, Ben McKee, to complete the band’s lineup.
The ensemble stayed together in Las Vegas and released three EPs. The first one was named Imagine Dragons EP which was followed by Hell and Silence EP and then the third one, It’s Time. The first major breakthrough for the band came in 2010 when they got the chance of performing at the Las Vegas Festival in front of over 26,000 people. From then on the band was set on an upward trajectory towards stardom and it is still moving up the path.
The Jump Forward
Imagine Dragons were signed by Interscope Records in 2011. By that time Andrew and Brittany Tolman had disbanded. Theresa Flaminio and Daniel Platzman were brought in as their replacement. Another EP was released with this modified lineup in 2012, titled ‘Continued Silence’ which reached the Billboard 200 on number 40. A single ‘Its Time’ was released some time later which again climbed at fifteenth position on the Billboard Hot 100. This single got a double platinum certificate by RIAA.
2012 saw the completion of the first studio album by the band, Night Visions, whose release was destined to take Imagine Dragons to the heights of popularity unimagined before. The album peaked the Billboard 200 chart at number 2 and climbed at number 1 on Billboard Alternative and Rock Album Charts. The album also went on to be certified platinum by the RIAA.
