‘Pantomime’ by Imagine Dragons (Unsigned)

Our favorite pop/rock group Imagine Dragons have just released this new track. They opened for Weezer on the last leg of the Memories tour at The Joint in Las Vegas (where they recently also opened for Interpol). Dubbed “Best Local Indie Band 2010” by the Las Vegas Weekly, these guys are HUGE. They put on an incredible show and have loads of fans especially in Las Vegas and Los Angeles…but that is definitely just the beginning.
