Started 2005 in Michigan, with too many member changes to list, an original core of Ante Up has always beat this horse with four things in mind... Making music they enjoy, having a good time, making friends all over the world, and creating something out of nothing. Ante Up may never be the new big thing or hype band in this scene and they don’t care. They have carved out their own little corner of destruction and like it or not they will never give up until this bands dying breath.
In 2015 Ante Up released a well received full length “See You In Hell” on German label FWH Records, as well as a solid follow up E.P in “Needles to Nails” in 2017 on US label Fast Break Records. Ante Up now sets its sights on an action packed release with New York’s own Upstate Records in 2019.
With a needed tweak to the bands lineup, a performance at Black and Blue Bowl, pissed off music being written, and a release from Upstate Records, 2019 promises to be Ante Ups biggest year to date.
Don’t be no chump, Ante the fuck Up.
