Produced by Tom Schick (Norah Jones, Ryan Adams, Rufus Wainright) and Sam Kassirer (Josh Ritter, Erin McKeown), 'The Bear' finds the band - Kellogg, Kit “Goose” Karlson and Brian “Boots” Factor unveiling their rawest and most definitive album to date.

The twelve songs on 'The Bear' each tell heartfelt, deeply honest stories of the highs and lows of life with lyrical finesse and wrapped in explosive touches of soulful classic rock.

The trio also brought in some special guests who lent their time and talents to the creation of The Bear: Canadian stand out Serena Ryder on "See Yourself", Josh Ritter on "All Part of the Show", label mates The Alternate Routes and Whiskeytown alumnus Mike Daly.

Stephen Kellogg formed The Sixers in Northampton, MA in 2003. They went on to release four records including 2007’s Glassjaw Boxer which was named one of the "Top Five Records of the Year" by USA Today critic Brian Mansfield.

As relentless road warriors, The Sixers are closing in on their 1000th show and are hailed by their growing legion of fans for their exceptional live performances and skilled showmanship. The band will kick off their national tour this fall and will be joined by Sam Getz, the newest member of The Sixers.
