The members of Interpol are trapped on their tourbus after being snowed in on the journey to a gig in Toronto.

The band were due to perform at the Kool Haus venue last night (November 18) but cancelled after they became stuck in a snowstorm outside Buffalo, New York. The band explained their predicament in the following statement issued on their official website:

"Our bus is trapped in a snowstorm just outside of Buffalo. We haven’t moved our position on the road in over nine hours. Unfortunately, we’ll have to cancel tonight’s concert at the Kool Haus. We were greatly looking forward to the show but the big bad winter has come early this year. We will be informing people of a new date as soon as we can."

The band have shared tweets and pictures from their bus as they approach 40 hours stuck in the snow.



Should Interpol emerge from their bus, their next scheduled gig takes place in Montreal tomorrow night (November 20).

Earlier this year Interpol's Paul Banks said he wishes the band did not have to play live as much, as the frontman prefers to spend his time recording instead.
