After six straight years of being on the road and finding huge success with their debut and sophomore records the guys in Imagine Dragons needed to take a break.

Formed in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2008, the band seemed like an overnight success as it launched onto the charts with its 2012 debut, “Night Visions,” and the singles “It’s Time,” “Radioactive,” “Demons” and “On Top of the World.”

The band members – vocalist Dan Reynolds, lead guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist and keys player Ben McKee and drummer Daniel Platzman – quickly went from playing 300-1,000-capacity clubs to selling out 16,000-capacity plus venues such as the Forum in Inglewood and Honda Center in Anaheim. Imagine Dragons even scored a Grammy for best rock performance with “Radioactive”  in 2014.

While the fire was hot, the band dropped its sophomore album “Smoke + Mirrors” in February 2015 and landed on the charts again with “I Bet My Life.” Countless performances and TV appearances later, the band members hit a wall and took a brief, but much needed hiatus in 2016 to clear their heads.

“It was necessary to have that time to relax because the choice was either keep going at that pace and just completely burn out or take a step back, take a breath and fall in love with the whole creative process and the idea of touring all over again,” McKee said during an interview backstage at KROQ 106.7/FM’s annual Weenie Roast at StubHub Center in Carson back in May.

“We really had to learn to appreciate the whole process and not just be out there kind of going through the motions. If you’re out there going through the motions, then you’re in the wrong business because music is not about that and your fans will see it. You have to take a break every once in a while to reconnect with the music and yourself. Then we recharged those batteries and we get back out there until we die.”

During the break from the road the guys began working on their third album, “Evolve,” which dropped on June 23. In front of a huge crowd at KROQ’s Weenie Roast the band debuted live three new tracks, “Believer,” “Thunder” and “Whatever It Takes.”

Imagine Dragons will now be taking those big, arena rock tracks out on the Evolve World Tour, which kicks off on Tuesday, Sept. 26, in Phoenix, Arizona, and comes to Mattress Firm Amphitheatre in Chula Vista on Thursday, Sept. 28 and the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles on Sunday, Oct. 1.  After zigzagging across the country the tour wraps up on Thursday, Nov. 16, at Honda Center in Anaheim.

“Right now we feel so grateful for our fans who have been with us on this journey from the beginning, you know, some of them pre-‘Night Visions,’” Reynolds said. “It feels great to know we’re getting back on the road now that we’ve been off for a while and we have that great hunger to get back at it.”

Coming back in after an extended break to work on the new album, Platzman said they brought in more than 200 musical ideas and were able to sort through them to create something that all four members collectively agreed represented Imagine Dragons.

“It’s putting our best foot forward and to get all four of us to agree, we are all very picky and we’re hard on ourselves, so when all four of us collectively agreed on this record, we knew we were on to something,” he added.

The first song the band put out as the first new taste of the record was the song “Believer.”

“I think it bridges the gap between the last album and this album,” McKee said of the single. “It’s progressive in a way for us as a sound. It sounds like something new, but it also has roots in what we really always have been. It has that sort of alternative rock foundation where we really started and it just felt like the right song to set off the tone of the album.”

“Believer” was accompanied by a colorful music video featuring Reynolds sparring off against actor Dolph Lundgren in a bloody boxing match. The idea to box the beefy 59-year-old Swedish actor, known for his role as Ivan Drago in “Rocky IV,” came from one of Imagine Dragons’ managers.

“They’ve been plotting my death for a long time … and failing,” Reynolds said with a laugh.

Imagine Dragons have spent the last few months rehearsing with some pretty grand production to match the big-sounding songs and they can’t wait to bring it all to these larger-scale venues, especially the Hollywood Bowl.

“Getting to play a venue like the Hollywood Bowl is special and it makes us feel connected to musicians in the past that have played it,” McKee said.

“Oh, like I don’t know, the Beatles played there,” Sermon added sarcastically. “I also saw Billy Joel there, too, it’s going to be awesome.”

“We will bring a dynamic show and we’re doing some new, surprising things while also grasping on to the things that we’ve learned in the past to really bring our world to the fans,” Reynolds said. “We want them to see what this world is really like – what does it look like, what does it feel like – tapping into all of the senses.”
