Continuing our coverage of SXSW 2012, we got the chance to chat with one of the up-and-coming bands we're most excited about: Imagine Dragons! The ever-so-handsome bandboys chatted with our very own Chelsea Briggs about wild nights at SXSW, meeting Flavor Flav and dream collaborations.

Imagine Dragons first broke into the music scene by winning four back-to-back battles of the bands. They have since made a a mark in the music industry with the release of two EPs -- Imagine Dragons and Hell and Silence and their amazing single -- It's Time.

The boys of Imagine Dragons talked about the sleepless nights in Austin and one drunkin' encounter in Norway, in which Ben was punched in the face (granted, it was after asking to be punched in the face) and suffered a concussion. As for their top picks for a collab, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney or Arcade Fire.

The group will be heading out on tour soon and expressed that performing live for their fans is what they love most about making music and how they can't wait to be back out on the road. And after getting the chance to see them perform live at SXSW, we have a feeling they'll be winning over new fans in every city they hit.

Are you excited for the Imagine Dragons tour?
