Imagine Dragons to Release New Album Evolve on June 23

Album Available for Pre-Order Now


Band Brings Dynamic Live Show to Arenas Across North America with the Evolve Tour this Fall

09 May 2017 (Toronto, ON) – Multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning band Imagine Dragons will release their third album, Evolve, on June 23 via KIDinaKORNER / Interscope Records / Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The band will also bring its electrifying live show to arenas across North America this fall, including five dates in Canada, with the Evolve Tour. Evolve is now available for pre-order from all participating digital retailers. Those who pre-order Evolve will receive instant downloads of the first single “Believer”, plus new songs “Thunder” and “Whatever It Takes”. Fans who pre-order the album on the official Imagine Dragons store today through Saturday, May 13 will be sent registration instructions and receive priority access in the Ticketmaster Verified Fan pre-sale, which begins on Monday, May 15. The album can be purchased in a variety of formats and bundles here. “Believer” is almost double-Platinum in Canada and is the No. 1 track at Alternative Radio for the sixth week in a row. In the U.S., “Believer” spent six consecutive weeks at No. 1 at Alternative Radio and broke a 13+ year record for number of spins at the format, besting the record previously held by Linkin Park’s “Faint” in 2003. TIME called “Believer” “another showstopper of an anthem,” while Entertainment Weekly noted its “thudding tribal drums, a massive shout along chorus, and a wicked bassline that’s the sonic equivalent of a slug to the gut.” Billboard called “Believer” “a whimsical-yet-authoritative anthem sure to turn even the most hesitant of optimists into a believer.” Imagine Dragons will kick off the Evolve Tour on September 26 in Phoenix, AZ, with Grouplove and K.Flay providing support. The tour will make five stops in Canada throughout the month of October – see full list of Canadian tour dates below. Tune in tonight here at 7pm PT to watch a global webcast of Imagine Dragons performing three songs from Evolve live from the YouTube space in Los Angeles. In addition, Imagine Dragons will perform at the 2017 iHeartRadio Much Music Video Awards on Sunday, June 18, and at the 2017 Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, May 21. Formed in 2009 and featuring lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee, and drummer Daniel Platzman, Imagine Dragons earned a grassroots following by independently releasing a series of EPs. After Alex Da Kid signed them to his KIDinaKORNER/Interscope label, the band made its major-label debut with the release of Continued Silence, a 2012 EP featuring the 2x platinum breakthrough single “It’s Time”. Night Visions arrived later that year and Imagine Dragons found themselves on a skyward trajectory that saw the album debut at No. 2 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and became the No. 1 album on Spotify Worldwide for 2013. Night Visions has sold over 5 million copies worldwide. The album’s second single, the 9x-platinum “Radioactive”, hit No. 1 on the Billboard Rock chart and earned the band a 2014 Grammy for “Best Rock Performance.” The third single, “Demons”, hit No. 1 at Alternative and Top 40 radio, and has sold 3.9 million copies in the U.S. Imagine Dragons’ platinum-selling second album, Smoke + Mirrors, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart and has sold 1.1 million copies worldwide.
