I Killed The Prom Queen will be detained in Malaysia for up to two weeks following a visa snafu. The band entered the country this weekend for a performance in Kuala Lumpur. Guitarist Jona Weinhofen has provided the following information via Twitter:

"Currently sitting in Immigration office [in] Malaysia waiting to be deported (best case scenario) because the promoter didn't get us visas... Apparently we're going to be detained for 4-14 days in a Malaysian immigration detention center... Weirdest part is some of the immigration officers asked us to autograph stuff and one is wearing a Prom Queen shirt. Still locking us up, though... At least we have food and water and we are in good health. Things could definitely be worse and our situation pales to other recent events."

UPDATE: I Killed The Prom Queen has now been released. Weinhofen had this to say:

"A lot of press is stating we were deported. For the record we were released with no action against us and apologized to by DG of immigration... Sorry, Malaysia ,but after this horrible experience I don't think we will return in a hurry."
