IMAGINE DRAGONS SEE DIAMONDS

The lads of Imagine Dragons are celebrating some new career milestones. The Mac Reynolds-managed quartet (who are repped for U.S. engagements by Corrie Martin at Wasserman) recently earned Diamond certification on “Demons,” making them the only band to have a trio of RIAA Diamond singles, including “Radioactive” (14x platinum) and “Believer” (10x platinum). 

“Radioactive” is now also tied for the highest single certification with Lil Nas X’s “Old Town Road” and Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used to Know.”

In celebration of the Dragons' new album, Mercury - Act 1, which arrived 9/3 via KIDinaKorner/Interscope (with Rick Rubin on board a exec producer), Amazon Music hosted an album release livestream event on Amazon Live the night before, during which the band performed acoustic versions of their new songs and hits and conducted a live Q&A with fans.
