GRAMMY®-winning, multi-Platinum band Imagine Dragons unleash an epic video for their latest single, the defiantly upbeat "Bones."
In the clip, directed by visual pioneer Jason Koenig, a zombie apocalypse plagues Wall Street, turning the trading floor into a ghoulish nightclub complete with scattered limbs, ’80s fashion, and dancing undead.

Frontman Dan Reynolds is almost unrecognizable in the video as he takes care of business as a day trader. Things take a hard left, however, when brain-eating, dancing zombies appear. In many ways, it’s a love letter to Michael Jackson’s seminal 1983 “Thriller” video — which just happens to be a favorite of Reynolds’ children.
“It definitely served as the inspiration for the 'Bones' video," Reynolds says. "I’ve always loved that 'Thriller' was both scary and playful. I didn’t know as a kid if I wanted to watch it again or not for fear of the ensuing nightmares, but I always came back for more with my eyes half-closed.” For his interpretation, the hitmaker came up with a sardonic twist: “The idea of punishing Wall Street with a zombie infection felt like an enjoyable time. And it was."
In addition to the release of the music video, produced by Swedish duo Mattman & Robin, “Bones” is the first taste of Imagine Dragons’ forthcoming double album Mercury — ACTS 1 & 2 which is scheduled for release on July 1.
