After the release of their sophomore album Under My Influence last summer, The Aces have organized a special surprise for fans: the Sleepy Eyes Sleepover!
The band previously announced that they would be releasing the B-sides of the album on all streaming platforms on Feb. 5. The bonus songs, “Sleepy Eyes” and “Aren’t You,” were exclusive to the limited edition vinyl bundle.
Since the songs were pivotal to the beginning of the Under My Influence era, the band wanted to do something special and intimate to celebrate their release. A virtual sleepover livestream event—complete with games, food, and new music—was the ideal way to gather Ace Faces from around the globe.
We are so excited to announce to you the Sleepy Eyes SLEEP OVER 👼👼👼👼 A night full of new music, food, games, (maybe playing a few songs 👀👀) and so much more. Feb 5th at 6 pm PT, anyone and everyone can join! Can’t wait to see you there, keep watching for more updates ❤️🥰 pic.twitter.com/Bhr8Ghrwgl

“We’re gonna have games, we’re gonna make pizzas… lots of other surprises,” said bassist McKenna Petty in the video.
The band even teased a possible performance during the event, and it sounds like an amazing way to spend a Friday night! Fans can watch the livestream on YouTube, Feb. 5 at 6:00 p.m. PST.
