In an interview with PEOPLE, Deryck, 41, and Ari open up for the first time about her attempted suicide eight years ago, how they’ve grown as a couple since and why Sum 41’s track “Catching Fire” — re-released Friday featuring Nothing, Nowhere — was the catalyst for their healing.
”This is something that I live with every day. It’s something that he lives with every day,” Ari, 30, tells PEOPLE. “It’s something that is very tangible in our lives. But keeping it between us isn’t going to do us any more favors. We’ve grown and learned everything we can from this experience.”
