"Radioactive" by Imagine Dragons
Imagine Dragons got started back in 2008 when lead singer Dan Reynolds discovered their guitarist Wayne Sermon while they were both at university, although Sermon was at a different school studying music. They started out as just another college band, little did they know they were gonna make it big one day!
Las Vegas EPs
Imagine Dragons recorded their first two EPs, the Imagine Dragons EP and Hell and Silence EP at Battle Born Studios in Las Vegas in 2010, and came back the next year to record another one, It's Time before signing a record deal. The group got their first big break when the frontman for rock heavyweights Train fell sick right before a festival in Las Vegas, and they got the opportunity to perform for 26, 000 plus people. The crowds when wild, and they got lots of critical praise, and were called the "best local indie band" in Vegas by local press.
A couple of the original members of the band left before they really caught on, and now the lineup is Wayne Sermon, Dan Reynolds, Ben McKee and Daniel Platzman. The band finished recording their official debut album Night Visions in the summer of 2012, but they had already released a couple of their older songs with success before the "Radioactive" swept the airwaves at the end of 2012.
