How to force status bar update

I have commands in my .i3/config like

bindsym XF86AudioRaiseVolume exec amixer set Master 2+

My i3status displays current volume in percents, but I have to wait the inteval (1 second in my case) for the bar to update so I can see the current volume. Is there a way to force refresh of the status bar, so it'll update as soon as I set the volume?

Starting with commit, you can use killall -USR1 i3status ;-).
