The band saw continued success with their subsequent albums: “Smoke + Mirrors,” “Evolve,” “Origins,” and most recently, “Mercury: Act 1.” Today, Imagine Dragons is one of the best-selling rock bands of all time with 46 million albums and 55 million songs sold globally, as well as 74 billion combined streams.
