KIDinaKORNER / Interscope recording artist IMAGINE DRAGONS’ debut album, Night Visions is certified platinum by the RIAA. Night Visions, released on September 4, 2012 entered the Billboard Top 200 Chart at #2 with the best first week sales for a full-length debut by a new rock band in over six years. Imagine Dragons crosses a monumental threshold; according to Nielsen SoundScan, since 2008 there have been 25 rock bands to sell over one million copies, only three of which were for debut albums.


The success of Night Visions was propelled by back-to-back hit singles, “It’s Time” (41 weeks on the Modern Rock chart, 44 weeks on the Triple A chart, Top 10 at Top 40 and Hot AC charts, selling more than 2.5 million copies) and the follow-up “Radioactive” (41 weeks on the Modern Rock Chart, currently Top 15 at Top 40 and Hot AC, Top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart, selling over 3.1 million copies). “Radioactive,” is also featured in the Beats By Dre Powerbeats ad campaign starring LeBron James. Watch it here.   Imagine Dragons have amassed over 75 million views on VEVO for “It’s Time,” “Radioactive” and “Demons.”


Entertainment Weekly called 2013 the “Year of the Dragons” and Billboard noted, “Imagine Dragons are rock’s 2013 live breakout.” They are scheduled to perform on Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series on July 5, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on July 26 and an episode of Live from the Artists Den premiering the weekend of August 9-11 nationwide on PBS. 

“This is an incredible accomplishment for the band and KIDinaKORNER. Imagine Dragons have certainly made their mark in the last year and I am extremely excited for the future,” said Alex Da Kid, Producer/Label Founder, KIDinaKORNER.

IMAGINE DRAGONS—comprising Dan Reynolds (vocals), Wayne Sermon (guitar), Ben McKee (bass), Daniel Platzman (drums)—are currently playing festivals and headlining a North American tour.
