Born out of an idea Adam and Josh came up with while driving home after the band's performance on the Fox Morning Show in Cincinnati, "Positivity's" concept was to capture the band and it's friendship as a stand alone piece of work. The band had developed a unique and diverse sound by playing hundreds of primarily cover gigs and it was time to write their own original songs. They got together for a long weekend, Columbus Day 2008. The concept was to bring to the weekend, song ideas in any form and throw them out to the rest of the band; kind of like making a big pot of stew. All the instruments had been miked so once the beginning of a song came into fruition they could record it. There were no expectations on the weekend. If they got stuff, Great, if they didn't that was okay too. By the end of the weekend they had written seven brand new songs and revived a few old ones. The first weekend led to a second and third gathering throughout the "off season" winter months and with each gathering the songs became stronger and more polished. As the spring of 2009 brought the band playing out in public again, the opportunity arose for the songs to be test-driven and various unveiling moments throughout the summer season allowed the songs to finish their growth.
