Crit (vocals) reflects on the inspiration behind T.I.M.E., "This EP came from the truth of life, and the fact that time itself is always taken for granted. Once it’s gone, it’s gone and we cannot forget that. Making memories, doing the things we love, living life, can all be taken away without warning. In the end, time is and will always be my enemy.".

Upstate Records, Mario Cangemi, adds, "I am really excited about T.I.M.E. It has a strong message behind the pummeling delivery amassed by Ante Up on their latest recording. It really brings all my favorite genres of heavy music into one solid recording".

T.I.M.E. was recorded by Ivan Fargo at Sound Shop Studios and Mixed and Mastered by Andy Nelson and Pete Grossman at the infamous Bricktop Studios in Chicago, Illinois.

Look for T.I.M.E. to be released on December 13th. Pre-orders begin on November 14th through Upstate Records online MerchNow webstore: upstaterecords.merchnow.com

Ante Up will be playing their release on December 14th at the Sanctuary in Detroit, with support from good friends in Eternal Sleep, Never Ending Game, Facewreck, Enemy of God and more!!!
