So far, 2014 has been a good year for Imagine Dragons. In between touring, appearing on SNL, and working on their sophomore album, they have been performing at various music award shows and winning awards for their exceptional music.
Imagine Dragons had 14 nominations at the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. Taking home five awards, including Top Rock Artist and Top Duo/Group, they were one of the biggest winners at the show, beat out only by Justin Timberlake who received seven awards. During the show, they hit the stage to perform the song"Tiptoe," from their Night Visions album.
At this year's Grammys, they won the Grammy for Best Rock Performance. At the show, they took their smash hit "Radioactive" and teamed up with Kendrick Lamar for an unforgettable rock rap performance. "Radioactive" has been the band's most popular song so far. It spent a record-setting 87 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100. Then at the very first iHeartRadio Music Awards earlier this month, Imagine Dragons won best Alternative Rock Song of the Year for "Demons."
The Las Vegas-based band got together in 2009 and debuted their first full-length album, Night Visions, in September of 2012. Night Visions produced hits such as "Radioactive," "On Top of the World" and "Demons." Earlier this year they embarked on their "Into The Night" tour, which came to an end in April, although the band will still be performing at festivals throughout August.
Luckily for fans, the band has been writing songs for their new album while on the road. There is no release date set for the new album, but until then, there is a new song from Imagine Dragons. It was recently revealed that the band will have a song in the upcoming film "Transformers: Age of Extinction," one of the most anticipated movies of the summer. Following an early screening of the film, Imagine Dragons wrote the original song "Battle Cry," which director Michael Bay used in critical points in the film. Additionally, the band contributed original music during the scoring process by recording cues with Jablonsky, the film's composer, and Hans Zimmer, who assisted in the process.
