Evolve will be released on June 23 via KIDinaKORNER / Interscope Records / Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. “Believer”, the first single off the album, is double-Platinum in Canada, was the No. 1 track at Alternative Radio for six weeks in a row, and is now creeping up the CHR charts. In the U.S., “Believer” also 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 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.”
The Imagine Dragons Evolve Tour with Grouplove and K.Flay providing support kicks off on September 26 in Phoenix, AZ and will make five stops in Canada throughout the month of October. Imagine Dragons are also headlining the 2017 WayHome Music and Arts Festival in Ontario this summer.
About Imagine Dragons: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 2x 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 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 Billboard Rock chart and earned the band a 2014 Grammy 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 No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart and has sold 1.1 million copies worldwide.
