Pacific-born, California-raised roots superstars Common Kings have announced their return to New Zealand for five concert dates this May, in support of their long-awaited debut LP Lost in Paradise.
Common Kings last visited New Zealand shores as One Love festival headliners in early 2016, and previously as special guests to Justin Timberlake in 2014. Since then, their relentless schedule has seen the band join Meghan Trainor on her Untouchable Tour, followed by their own sell-out headline American tour.
Common Kings’ style and music is a collection of inspirations orchestrated into an array of head rocking beats, feel good vibes and emotional fever. Their crazy, fun-loving attitude compliments Common Kings’ live sound, producing phenomenal pop hits with rock, reggae and R&B influences. These influences originate from each band members love for various genres and widespread knowledge of music.
Released in late 2015, Common Kings’ EP Hits & Mrs saw the band spend 20 weeks on the Billboard Reggae Charts peaking at #2. The EP also saw the band named Best International Pacific Artist at New Zealand’s Pacific Music Awards in 2016. The release of ‘Lost in Paradise’ on February 25 saw Common Kings spend the past seven weeks on the Billboard Reggae Charts with the song currently taking the #1 spot.
