“Believer” spent six consecutive weeks at number one on Alternative Radio and broke a 13+ year record for number of spins on the format, besting the record previously held by Linkin Park’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.”
Tune in tonight here at 10 p.m. EST to watch a global webcast of Imagine Dragons performing three songs from “Evolve” live from the YouTube space in Los Angeles. In addition, Imagine Dragons will perform at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards, which will broadcast live from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 21, at 8 pm ET / 5 pm PT on ABC.
Formed in 2009 and featuring lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman, Imagine Dragons earned a grassroots following by independently releasing a series of EPs. After Alex Da Kid signed them to his KIDinaKORNER/Interscope label, the band made its major-label debut with the release of “Continued Silence,” a 2012 EP featuring the two times-platinum breakthrough single “It’s Time.” “Night Visions” arrived later that year and Imagine Dragons found themselves on a skyward trajectory that saw the album debut at number two on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and became the number one album on Spotify Worldwide for 2013. “Night Visions” has sold over five million copies worldwide. The album’s second single, the nine times-platinum “Radioactive,” hit number one on the Billboard Rock chart and earned the band a 2014 Grammy for Best Rock Performance. The third single, “Demons,” hit number one on 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 number one on the Billboard Top 200 album chart and has sold 1.1 million copies worldwide. The band’s third album, “Evolve” is due June 23.
