Sitting at number one on the charts this week, 'Believer' is a hit, no doubt, but it also came with some actual hits to the face for frontman Dan Reynolds.

Remember back in 2012 when Imagine Dragons played the Aggie? Just a few years later, and they were doing arena tours. That seemingly quick climb to success mirrors the growth of their first single in two years, 'Believer,' which has shot straight to the top of the charts in just a matter of weeks.

I spoke with guitarist Wayne Sermon about the mysterious 2017 album, a subsequent tour and how Reynolds actually got punched in the face by a boxer from the Rocky movies in the music video for 'Believer' (see below).
