In Degrassi: The Next Generation, the sixth season sees Lazzara and the rest of the band performing in the episode “What’s It Feel Like To Be A Ghost? (2)”. The show’s resident goth girl Ellie Nash misses her chance to interview the band after distracting them.

The episode aired at the beginning of 2007 and now we’re finding out some background about the guest spot straight from the band themselves.

Writer Ashley Laderer asked the band directly about the episode and given that everyone is at home right now, they had time to give a detailed response.
