Imagine Dragons are on top of the rock world at the moment. Sold out shows, platinum plaques and award show glory follow the band everywhere they go. Oh, also Kendrick Lamar seems to like working with them a fair bit.
And ET Canada grabbed an exclusive interview with the band while they were in Toronto for a sold out show at the Air Canada Centre. It turns out that the Sin City alt-rock outfit is still trying to get acclimatized to their recent rise to mega-stardom.
"You know I don’t think it’s set in for any of us," shared Imagine Dragons frontman Dan Reynolds on the band’s boom in popularity.
Reynolds admitted to ET Canadathat a lot of the whirlwind success surrounding the band is a bit on the surreal side, including the group’s 2014 Grammy win for Best Rock Performance.
"We all grew up watching the Grammys and never even thought for a second we would attend the Grammys, let alone win a Grammy," noted Reynolds.
"We were never trying to create a hit album when we were recording Night Visions,” offered bassist Ben McKee. “We were just trying to create an album we could be proud of.”
