Imagine Dragons Aim For 'Perfection' On New Album ... And That Might Take A While

Breakout band already working on new music, just don't ask about a deadline.

Imagine Dragons have been pretty busy as of late — so busy, in fact, that the only time they could pencil in for sleep was during the Grammy nominations.

But, after capping a remarkable 2013 with an (almost) New Year's Eve homecoming show in Las Vegas, they're kicking off 2014 in a decidedly different fashion: by doing absolutely nothing.

Yes, for the first time in a while, the Dragons' schedules are open ... with nothing on the horizon until the kickoff of their North American Into The Night tour next month. That trek is meant as a final victory lap for their breakout Night Visions album, and, as they told MTV News previously, they've already begun thinking about their next album, too. So, how will they be spending their much-deserved break? Why, by working, of course.

But when will fans get to hear the fruits of that labor? From the sound of things, it might be a while.

"We're about to go to do a full arena tour, and I think the truth is, all of us are writing, so we definitely have a lot of demos, but we really don't want to put a timeline on ourselves," frontman Dan Reynolds said. "Because the most important thing to us is that we put out an album that we're really happy with."

And while, sure, there are probably some — like the folks at Interscope — who hope Imagine Dragons will strike while the iron's hot, Reynolds said that he and his bandmates intend to take their sweet time with the follow-up to Night Visions. After all, he knows how they tend to operate, and they've definitely earned the right to make their album that way.

"We tend to be perfectionists, too hard on ourselves at times, and we don't want to rush anything because we know how we are with things," he said. "We don't want to put a record out until we really feel good about it, you know, and who knows how long that will take."
