A year's worth of snow is currently being dumped on upstate New York, killing five people, stranding drivers on I-90 and causing a lot of trouble for touring indie rock band Interpol.

Tuesday night, the band posted an apology to its Toronto-area friends from somewhere outside Buffalo:


Dear Toronto,

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.

All the best,

That, alas, was only the beginning of Interpol's saga:

And touring keyboardist and vocalist Brandon Curtis may have been a bit premature in his outlook for Wednesday:

As of 10 a.m. Eastern time, the band's tour bus was still trapped, meaning they've been on the bus for a total of 41 hours and counting as of this posting:
