When Was Bones by Imagine Dragons Released?

The American rock band, Imagine Dragons, has been a staple in the music industry since they first burst onto the scene with their debut album, Night Visions. The band consists of lead vocalist Dan Reynolds, guitarist Wayne Sermon, bassist Ben McKee and drummer Daniel Platzman. Since then, they have released four more albums and have amassed a huge fanbase all over the world.

One of their most popular tracks is “Bones,” an anthem that has garnered millions of streams and views on various platforms like YouTube and Spotify. Fans often wonder when exactly this smash hit was released.

“Bones” was officially released on October 27th, 2015 as part of the deluxe edition of Imagine Dragon’s second studio album called Smoke + Mirrors. This version included four bonus tracks that were not included in the original record.

Smoke + Mirrors was highly anticipated after Imagine Dragons’ success with Night Visions back in 2012. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard charts upon its release despite receiving mixed reviews from critics who noted its darker tone compared to Night Visions which had a more upbeat sound.

Over time though, Smoke + Mirrors proved to be another successful outing for the Las Vegas-based group thanks largely to hits like “I Bet My Life,” “Gold,” and “Shots.” However it was really with “Bones” where fans got to witness one of their strongest offerings yet.

Things kicked off when US television network ABC chose “Roots” as its official song for coverage during college football games broadcasted on ESPN – but while “Roots” performed well enough across America’s many radio playlists throughout summer quarters (it would peak at #62), it wasn’t until just after that aforementioned complete-’em-up tour finished up did ‘BONES’ enter radar for this writer initially (November). What then began as months-long chewing of the cud suddenly became the sight, and appreciative clicking of fully evolved teeth.

“Bones” starts with an instrumental intro that immediately sets a haunting tone. The song builds up to an anthemic chorus where Reynolds’ powerful vocals take center stage as he belts out lyrics that are both cryptic and relatable at the same time.

Particularly noteworthy is the impactful bridge which sees Reynolds deliver possibly his finest moment on record, screaming: “You don’t have to make a sound / ‘Cause they got what they need / And they’ll never find / You caught in such a simple light.” The jaw-dropping crescendo simply puts hairs up everywhere, oscillating between impassioned pleading and full distress signal-out calls for help – one could almost picture suitably melodramatic cutaways from TV shows like Scandal or Grey’s Anatomy.

Similarly remarkable is guitar-virtuoso Wayne Sermon’s contributions as he brings a slew of memorable riffs throughout its duration while American Songwriter described this track as having some “of their most inventive production yet.”

“Bones” quickly became a fan favorite upon release thanks to its poignant lyrics and catchy instrumentation. It would later go on to appear in several films and TV shows including The Angry Birds Movie 2, So You Think You Can Dance?, Pitch Perfect 3 ,and more- showing just how ubiquitous it had become over the years following its initial release.

In conclusion then, Bones by Imagine Dragons was released on October 27th ,2015 but it has remained relevant since through heavy radio play, appearances in movies/TV shows or simply reverberating within individual playlists til date. It remains one of Imagine Dragon’s strongest offerings till date that showcases not only their musical prowess but ability too bend genres whilst making hard-hitting statements on humanity- highly recommending for anyone seeking inspirational music with strong doses of personality mixed into it!
Overall, “Bones” has stood the test of time and remains a beloved track by Imagine Dragons fans all over the world. Its release date may have been in October 2015, but its impact has only grown stronger with every passing year. It’s clear that this song is a testament to the band’s creativity and ability to produce music that resonates deeply with listeners. Whether it’s through Reynolds’ powerful vocals, Sermon’s memorable riffs, or the overall production quality – “Bones” is an exceptional example of how good rock music can be when done right.

So next time you find yourself humming along to this anthem on your playlist or hearing it play on the radio, take a moment to appreciate just how special it truly is – not just as one of Imagine Dragons’ strongest offerings but also as an exceptional musical piece globally!
