Racetraitor vocalist Mani Mostofi raised in Hands to Uprising’s interest. He also visitor stars within the recording, adding thick support vocals. Up in Hands supported the Battle to the Loss of life record throughout 2000 and 2001, playing displays with rings like Zao, Trial, Eighteen Visions, and Botch amongst others.
