As is customary among many artists prior to a significant announcement, Swedish House Mafia has formally deleted their Instagram account.
Not long after Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso mysteriously wiped their Instagram platforms, their iconic three-man supergroup followed suit while fellow SHM member Axwell‘s address remains active.
Following the group’s epic 2018 reunion at Ultra Music Festival, Swedish House Mafia cleared their official Instagram account prior to announcing a wave of special shows and festival performances. The silent, cryptic message was hinting at something bigger yet no one could’ve anticipated what the Scandinavian trio had in store. It’s not much different this time ’round making any and all news a hot commodity.
Fans can possibly expect new music, a full album, or some sort of performance or tour to come as the chances that this current content deletion is coincidental are highly unlikely.
After the huge reunion that took place at Ultra this year, Swedish House Mafia will be playing again. Last night at Axwell Λ Ingrosso’s show at the Brooklyn Mirage in New York, they officially announced a new Swedish House Mafia show in New York in 2019.
This is huge news for SHM fans as the last time the group went on tour was from November 2012 to March 2013, after the announcement of their impending break up in June 2012. As a result, the entire tour spanned 53 shows across the world to reach all their adoring fans.
To create hype, you can clearly hear Axwell say in the video below, “Should we cancel the Swedish House Mafia gig we’re planning next year? Because I don’t know if they’re ready for Swedish House Mafia in 2019 in New York.” The statement was met by massive applause.
Angello’s long overdue full length Wild Youth will be available on November 20, 2015 on his own label, Size Records and it will feature two previously released singles, ‘Wasted Love‘ and ‘Children Of The Wild’, the latter of which can be seen and heard below.
BBC Radio 1 is celebrating dance music history by replaying the best Essential mixes from the past two decades. Three days ago, Swedish House Mafia’s Soundcloud channel was dusted off and taken out dormancy as their 2007 BBC Radio 1 ‘Live at Amnesia’ debut was uploaded to their page.
Though SHF has since disbanded with Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso and Steve Angello establishing themselves as successful solo artists in their own right, the former trio’s accomplishments were of legendary proportion and played a vital part in helping make dance music part of American pop culture.
We hope you enjoy the two hour mix by these incredibly talented Swedes!
