Their third full-length album, Quietdrive , was released on December 14, , and a full-length album, Up or Down , on April 24, The original members of the band attended Sultana High School in Hesperia, California, and in ninth grade, Brandon Lanier started telling Droo Hastings that he was a great drummer and that they should start a band with him and his friend Justin Bonhiver. Initially, the band was a trio with Hastings as lead singer and bass guitar, Lanier playing drums, and Bonhiver on guitar.
Kevin Truckenmiller entered the band after submitting his solo work, including an early incarnation of the song "I Go Both Ways", which was named after their friend, Jennings Lane.
Quietdrive initially built a following at The Garage youth center in Burnsville, Minnesota. As Quietdrive, the band recorded demo songs with Eric Trelstad. These songs were heard by Will. Will arranged for the band to retain attorney Peter Lewitt and to showcase in Los Angeles but executives from Interscope passed on signing the band.
Afterwards, Truckenmiller began strongly to consider reorganizing the band with inclusion of Matt Kirby.

By April , Kirby was officially made a band member and Sneaker2bombs began live performances in local bars including The Lodge. The band put Sneaker2bombs recordings on music industry mp3 sites and Chris Foitle, an intern at Epic Records in Santa Monica, began contacting Bonhiver and Truckenmiller.
In July , Epic arranged to see the band perform in Minneapolis with the assistance of Greg Sheldon. Giberga was familiar with Sui Generis, a young emo act from Apple Valley who Giberga unsuccessfully pursued for Epic in In early August , Giberga contacted attorney Lewitt and offered a deal memo binding Quietdrive to Epic. Truckenmiller consented.
Over the next four months, the band sought advice from industry veterans including Danny Nozell, and emerged with the decision to dismiss Lewitt, hire Sui Generis attorney Jeff Biederman, and negotiate a long form contract with Epic. During this time, Atlantic Records also expressed interest in meeting with the band but that interest was held in check by Epic's deal memo and Epic's executive intimations that it would pursue legal action if it lost the band to another label.
Following that visit, final terms were negotiated and a long form was signed.
