(CNN) — Dan Reynolds, the lead singer for Imagine Dragons, is taking some time off from fronting the band in order to focus on being a dad, husband and friend.

Reynolds tells CNN that he and the band have been on the road for nearly a decade, and while it's all love between the four members, they are all taking a much-needed time out. He's currently in Las Vegas enjoying his downtime with his wife, Aja Volkman, 7-year-old daughter, Arrow, his 2-year-old twins, Gia and Coco, and a newborn boy, Valentine.

"We're trying to take some time off right now just to reconnect with family and friends. And I mean, we were on the road for really a decade straight. So all of us were just wanting to rediscover what it means to be, you know, a dad or a friend or a son," Reynolds says.

"Especially because I had a newborn and our guitarist has a relatively new child as well, so we're trying to just be dads and then, you know, when the itch comes up, I'm sure we'll be back out on the road pretty soon."

He says he's found joy in the dad life, taking his kids to Disneyland and talking about being a rock star in his oldest kid's career day at school.
