The band finished a show in Columbus, Ohio on Monday night (17 November), but soon ran into trouble as they started their journey to their next show in Toronto, Canada.

With between three and six feet of snow falling in the upstate New York area, causing travel chaos and resulting in at least seven deaths.

On Tuesday, they posted an updated via interpolnyc.com : "We’ve been stranded in a snowstorm outside of Buffalo for over 40 hours and still don’t know when we’ll be able to move from our current position."


The Toronto show was cancelled, but the band's ordeal was still not over. Yesterday (19 November), the band posted: "It’s with great regret that we have to announce the cancellation of our show tomorrow night in Montreal. We’ve been stranded in a snowstorm outside of Buffalo for over 40 hours and still don’t know when we’ll be able to move from our current position."




The band last tweeted around 3am British time on Thursday morning (20 November), digging in as another snow storm was about to hit and discussing whether British people like peanut butter. They are currently surviving on vodka, "dry goods" and a nearby cafe.


Radio X is sending warm thoughts to Interpol and hopes they get moving soon.
