What could be more appropriate for Record Store Day than 'Imagine Dragons Live at Independent Records,' a document of a live performance the band gave at an aptly named indie retailer in Colorado? Pretty much nothing could be more appropriate, if you ask us!
Imagine Dragons are winners of two Diffuser.fm Music Awards! The Las Vegas-based rockers snagged 2012 Debut Album of the Year honors for their 'Night Visions' disc, securing just under 38% of the vote and beating out high-profile freshman releases like the Lumineers' self-titled album (19%) and Lana Del Rey's 'Born to Die' (16%). The Dragons also won Most Memorable TV Moment for their performance in front of an empty 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon' studio as Hurricane Sandy approached New York City back in October, besting such other notable TV moments as Adele's post-throat-surgery comeback at the 2012 Grammys (19%) and Florence Welch's 'Balls in Your Mouth' duet on 'Jimmy Fallon' (11%).
A procession of cute and cuddly puppets duke it out to the death in a cockfighting-like ring as hustlers look, wagering Benjamins, in the new video for 'Radioactive,' the opening track and latest single off Imagine Dragons' 2012 debut album, 'Night Visions.' Actor Lou Diamond Phillips ('Southland') stars in the clip as the head of the whole blood-sport operation, while Alexandra Daddario ('Parenthood') appears as the woman who brings the pink stuffed animal that (spoiler alert!) finally brings down the menacing, Muppet-like stuffed beast who rules the roost.
Imagine Dragons' profile just keeps rising. The Las Vegas indie rockers will get some serious mainstream exposure when their tune 'It's Time' is performed during the Season 4 premiere of ‘Glee' on Thursday, reports PopCrush. Other tunes set to get the 'Glee' treatment during the show include the Fray's 'Never Say Never' and, as previously announced, Adele's 'Chasing Pavements.'
In the week leading up to the release of their debut album, ‘Night Visions,' Imagine Dragons have been writing a daily guest blog exclusively for Diffuser.fm. Check out today’s installment from the band, their last of the series, written by guitarist D. Wayne Sermon. Don't forget: You can download a copy of the new album on iTunes now.
