With sales of 83,213 copies, this is the best first week sales for a full- length debut by a new rock band since May 2006. The current single, "It's Time" sung by Darren Criss (Blaine) will be featured on the season four Glee premiere which airs Thursday, September 13th on FOX at 9/8c.
NIGHT VISIONS follows on the heels of the band's fourth EP Continued Silence, which recently topped the New Artist Alternative album chart.

"It's Time" has sold nearly 500,000 copies and is also featured in the trailer for the upcoming film The Perks of Being A Wallflower, which hits theaters on September 20th.
Entertainment Weekly calls, "It's Time" "a perfect misfit anthem" and People Magazine raves, "an anthem with a rich melody that's infectious but gritty." "Imagine Dragons has learned to craft the massive choruses and propulsive rhythms needed to take a rock band into arenas," praises USA TODAY.
