Australian band detained in Malaysia

Australian metalcore band I Killed The Prom Queen has been detained in Malaysia and could be held there for a number of days.

Guitarist Jona Weinhofen took to Twitter to say the band could be held in immigration detention for up to two weeks because it doesn’t have a permit to perform.

“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 tho (sic),” he tweeted early on Sunday morning.


“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.”

The Adelaide band was detained after performing in Kuala Lumpur on Saturday night as part of their Beloved album tour of South East Asia.

They were due to perform in Indonesia on Sunday night.
