It’s ironic that Infinite Regress, the latest LP from Toronto rock outfit The Sole Pursuit, is actually their most sonically progressive and least solitary release to date – and it’s all the better because of that.

Conceived as a creative outlet for frontman Kyle Dawe, The Sole Pursuit has swollen into something more communal and substantial, and Infinite Regress epitomizes that evolution. Infinite Regress was three years in the making – three rather trying and turbulent years at that. With a full album recorded and ready for release, a dispute with its producer led to a lengthy – and ultimately costly – conflict. “I really thought the band could be dead in the water,” Dawe admits, “but then I had the light bulb moment to just scrap it and do a new record altogether – something that better represented The Sole Pursuit at that particular time.”

And so in late 2014, Dawe and company entered the studio with producer Mike Langford (Sloan, Thornley, Crash Karma) to cut what would become Infinite Regress. The album builds on the sound established on the EPs preceding it, amping up the intensity and aggression in large part thanks to the struggles surrounding its creation. The result is a collection that’s more anthemic and accessible, but nonetheless boasting a depth of style and influence that borrows from everything from Foo Fighters and Queens of the Stone Age to The Pixies and Vampire Weekend.

Lyrically, the songs are centred on conflict, as embodied by the record’s title. “That phrase just kind of summed it up,” Dawe offers. “It was that idea that no matter what you do, it always feels like you end up at the same place. With everything we’d gone through as a band, there was a dark humour in that title.” And though it’s a sombre sentiment, there’s something nonetheless empowering and uplifting about the way they translate through the band’s power and passion.

With a now cemented lineup consisting of Dawe, Perry, drummer Adam Hay and bassist Dylan Burrett, The Sole Pursuit is ready to not-so-solely pursue their ambitions. “We’re going out, we’re gonna tour, and we’re really gonna do this,” Dawe says with resolve. Whether it’s from the stereo or stage, The Sole Pursuit bleeds fervor and intensity. “We’ve faced plenty of struggle in this band already,” Dawe says, “but with all that’s been invested in this, we’re determined to make it work.”

If it’s true what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, then there’s nothing stopping The Sole Pursuit from pushing forward – together and with proven tenacity.
