X Ambassadors have been killing it lately on the rock charts.

After breaking through with a synch in a Jeep Renegade commercial, "Renegades" currently leads Alternative Songs and Rock Airplay and sits at No. 74 on the Hot 100. But the quartet from Ithaca, New York is still relatively unknown outside of its fanbase, so we thought we'd have them take us through their debut album.

Out June 30 on KIDinaKORNER/Interscope, VHS will look to take X Ambassadors beyond the success of their hit single and onto album-based fame. Check out the video below, as the band explains how executive producers Imagine Dragons took them under their wing, how their love of hip-hop shaped their sound, and  much more. 

"VHS is our story," the band tells Billboard. "It's about growing up, falling in love, messing up, starting over and trying again; about family, commitment, broken promises and going up against the odds. It's an intimate, personal look into our past -- to figure out what made us who we are today, and who we want to be."
