One of music's breakout artists of 2013, Imagine Dragons have become touring sensations as they played to sold-out shows throughout their latest Night Visions tour.
Rolling Stone proclaimed Imagine Dragons “the biggest breakout of the year” and Entertainment Weekly called 2013 the “Year of the Dragons” while Billboard noted, “Imagine Dragons are rock’s 2013 live breakout."
Now up for two GRAMMY Awards, they are predicted to take home the award for Record of the Year acording to USA Today and Spotify.
