  13. They beat cancer twice, had a drummer jump out of a moving van, their guitar player barely made a getaway out of Egypt to escape political detention, they almost froze to death when they ran out of gas in the middle of nowhere in the middle of Canadian winter, their RV lost all lights while driving in the middle of the Rockies at 3 am and they kept going using a flash light out the window! They have been at it for 9 releases and will never stop! "With their full frontal loud attitude that demands your attention, a madman at the front of the stage backed up by a powerhouse wall of sound" Special Ops have in less than 6 months, unleashed 2 direct hits to follow up to their award winning “Through The Heart Of The Infidel” and successful single “Pressure” as well as older success’s like “Anger” chosen as the theme song for “The Sid Cycle Show” (Global/Spike/Men TV).

  15. “BLOOD AND TEARS” captures the hearts and minds of those who have struggled in protest and demonstrates the trial and tribulations they as a band have seen. Everything from one member’s cancer ordeal through tour to lost loves to industry drama that the everyday artist struggles with. Special Ops bring forward in their international collective an explosive return to their unique brand of brand of Rock.
