Sad news for the followers and followers of Imagine Dragons: the group will decide to take a break for a season. Thus, Dan Reynolds, the band’s vocalist, has announced it. The reason? He wants to have free time to devote time to his family.
Dan Reynolds wanted to explain in a CNN interview the reasons that led him to make this decision: “We have decided to take some time to reconnect with our family and friends. We have worked very hard for a decade, we all want to rediscover what it is to be a father, friend or son. ”
In addition, the singer wanted to explain that he has just been a father, like the guitarist of the group: “I have a newborn baby and our guitarist also has a son, so we are trying to be parents and then, you know, when we take a Time, we will return. I’m sure it will be soon. ”
A few months ago, Reynolds also announced that he was suffering from ankylosing spondylitis, a chronic disease that causes pain in some areas of the body such as in the joints and in the spine.
The artist spoke bluntly about this disease in one of his last tour concerts: “It is an autoimmune disease. Basically your immune system believes that your own joints are a disease in itself and attacks them. This produces the episodes of arthrisis. ”
Without a doubt, the fans of the group are not happy with the news. But, we will trust Reynolds’ words, and hope they come back soon. Now, boys have to enjoy their lives a little, don’t they?
Imagine Dragons began in 2009 with the release of their EP Hell and Silences, but it was in 2012, with their first album, Night Visions, when the music industry fell before them. The singles of Demons and Radioactive became two of their most listened to songs.
Then Smoke + Mirrors arrived in 2015 with songs like I Bet My Life or Shots. In 2017 they returned to conquer the public with Envolve, an album where we can listen to one of their most acclaimed songs: Thunder.
But the boys did not stop creating music and only one year later (2018) they launched the Origins market. Yes, they may deserve a break.
