Interpol, those black-clad avatars of downtown cool, is currently trapped in a harrowing tale of survival. For two days now, the band's tour bus has been snowbound in the deadly blizzard that dumped four feet of snow on western New York. Interpol was on the way to play a show in Toronto, but that gig has obviously been canceled. The good news is the members are all alive and tweeting.

Still trapped yo! Haven't really moved in 30 hours and we've been on the bus for nearly 40 hours. Nutso. Never seen anything like it.-DK— Interpol (@Interpol) November 19, 2014

And then...it started snowing again. Hoping the plows are able to make some progress. Still stuck.-DK pic.twitter.com/mc7MzttXvm— Interpol (@Interpol) November 19, 2014
And can I just say firemen are awesome. They just are yo. Serious ballers during these conditions.-DK— Interpol (@Interpol) November 19, 2014
The bad news is the band is still stuck. If they all start writing about lady fingers, we'll know things have gotten serious.
