    New Music Alert: Meet the Common Kings - Watch the live acoustic version of "Alcoholics"

    New music first, always at ARTISTdirect. The R&B and reggae-influenced Common Kings have shared a live, acoustic version of their song "Alcoholic." Envision a mashup of Bruno Mars, Maroon 5 and Sublime.

    We love it, so we HAD to share it. Get to know these dudes now, because we see BIG things in their future.

    Watch it below.

    Now, let's get acquainted with the Kings.

    The band is comprised of four young men whose roots can be traced to the South Pacific who came together in Orange County, California in 2011.

    In anticipation of their forthcoming debut EP in September, the Common Kings will be releasing their Summer Anthem mixtape in the coming weeks. The mixtape is made especially for Common Kings' existing fanbase and stays true to their roots but offers as a segue to the group's developing sound.

    Did you dig "Alcoholic?" Find out more about the band on via its website or Twitter.
