MTV is predominantly infiltrated with a slew of reality television shows, but the network’s roots will forever be soaked in the creative nutrients of music. MTV still brings exposure to emerging artists even though the spotlight is now mostly reserved for the Internet. Every so often a music video makes its way into the televised programming and last week that was the Las Vegas band, Imagine Dragons.
MTV chose the quartet, which consists of vocalist, Dan Reynolds, guitarist, Wayne Sermon, bassist, Ben McKee and drummer, Daniel Platzman, as its PUSH artist of the week for April 16th. The PUSH selection was perfect timing for Imagine Dragons, who just released the video for their current single, “It’s Time.” The tune, which is off of the outfit’s latest EP, “Continued Silence,” is currently at No. 14 on the Alternative Rock radio chart, while the EP is No. 6 on Soundscan’s Alternative New Artist Album chart. Leading the pack of Shockya’s top releases of 2012, “Continued Silence” is available for purchase on iTunes.
Shockya jumped on the Imagine Dragons bandwagon earlier this month. Check out our interview with guitarist, Wayne Sermon. He will fill you in on all news Imagine Dragons, so you don’t lose track of one this year’s best new bands. Sorry One Direction and The Wanted, but you have got more competition than just each other.
Imagine Dragons are out on the road with The Jezabels throughout April and May. You can check out the band’s full tour schedule and more at their official site.
