Daniel Kessler of the band kept fans updated via Twitter, and shared their moment of escape earlier today. The band first became stuck in the snow storm at 6pm on November 18.

Hundred Waters, meanwhile, were forced to cancel an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman after becoming stranded alongside Interpol. Headliners Interpol are due to perform in Boston tomorrow night (November 21).

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.

Interpol return to the UK and Ireland in February 2015 for a full headline tour.


Interpol will play:

London Roundhouse (February 6, 7)
Manchester Albert Hall (8)
Dublin Olympia (10, 11, 12)
