It has been almost a week since Swedish House Mafia updated their website to include a countdown timer. Today at 5 a.m. EST the countdown clock ended and the timer became a live video.
At about 5:10 a.m. the guys came into frame and began a press conference entirely in Swedish. During the conference Steve, Seb and Axwell spoke about why they broke up, and why they decided now was time to return.
The guys noted that positive response to their Ultra reunion, and how the man who organized the reunion was brought to tears when he saw them back together.
When asked about new music, the guys confirmed they have already been working on new music, and it will be similar to the music of today, but still in the style of Swedish House Mafia.
They did not explain further what “the music of today” sound means to them but we can only imagine that the sound of Swedish House Mafia will be updated.
When asked about touring the guys were STILL tight-lipped, citing that only one show has been confirmed. Stockholm, Sweden on May 4th, 2019 at Tele2 arena will be the next Swedish House Mafia performance. They did say more dates would be announced later.
When asked about the guy's individual side projects they explained that moving forward they will be giving 100% attention to Swedish House Mafia. Steve Angello and Axwell/\Ingrosso will be put on hold indefinitely.
When asked about if they regretted breaking up 5 years ago, they all agreed that it was the right choice. They were sick of Swedish House Mafia and needed a break. Now, they believe the time has come to once again join forces.
