New York’s Taking Back Sunday will appear in a new episode of The N’s hit teen drama Degrassi: The Next Generation – premiering Friday, January 12th at 8 p.m. EST.
In the episode entitled “What’s It Feel Like to Be a Ghost?” (after the band’s song of the same name) aspiring musician and Degrassi bad boy, Craig Manning joins Taking Back Sunday for a one-night-only gig, but soon finds that his new habit of “partying like a rock star” may get in the way of his dream career and dream girl. Degrassi: The Next Generation is the winner of both a Television Critics Association Award and a Teen Choice Summer Series Award.
Taking Back Sunday have been busy this holiday season, having just completed a series of December radio shows, recorded a holiday song called “12 Days of Christmas (Christmas Is For The Birds)” for AOL Sessions, and performed their hit Modern Rock single “Liar (It Takes One to Know One)” on The Late Show With David Letterman on December 20th.
In addition, Warner Bros. Records has just released a special CD/DVD edition of the band’s gold-certified third album ‘Louder Now,’ entitled ‘Louder Now: Partone’ – which includes music videos, live clips, and behind the scenes footage.
The band have also announced dates for their 2007 North American Tour with support acts Underoath and Armor for Sleep – which kicks off on February 22nd in Pennsylvania.
